Plot hole: The parents meet and get married on the QE II and then we jump to the girls getting to camp 11 years and nine months later. We learn their 12th birthdays are on October 11, so at the time of the camp (which must be around July/August) they are 11 years and around 9 months old. They should only be 11, given it takes 9 months to grow a baby, but instead they're nearly 12.

More quotes from The Parent Trap

Question: Towards the end of the movie, when the parents are looking at the wine bottles, they hear Martin and Chessy arrive home. Nick tells Elizabeth "she has a key" - why does Elizabeth back up right away as he said that?

Answer: I think she was scared of falling in love with Nick again, and maybe because she thought they were better off not together, considering they became successful and achieved each other's dreams when they were apart.
