The Parent Trap

Trivia: As Hal meets Meredith coming out of an elevator in the hotel, she is mumbling "Let's Get Together", which was a song from the original movie.

Trivia: In the scene when Hallie (playing as Annie) and Liz (the mom) are walking to the photo shoot, they're walking across the street. It goes into a freeze frame while playing 'Here Comes The Sun', that was a Beatles song and the Beatles took a picture in those exact poses.

Trivia: The actress who plays Meredith's mom is the same woman who played Vicky in the original film.

Trivia: The hotel in San Francisco where they're all supposed to meet is the Stafford Hotel. In the original film, Stafford was the name of the boyfriend that twin Susan, playing Sharon, makes up to excuse talking to her mother about her father.

Trivia: The street Hallie and her mom are walking across is a remake of Abbey Road, recreating everything from the people to the cars, etc.

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.

Suggested correction: Elizabeth James got pregnant sometime within the 11 years. Their parents sent them to camp in July because in October they both turn 12. So they are 11 years 9 months old.

The mistake is valid, but perhaps not specific enough about why. The opening scene takes place Jan 8, 1986 (as seen on the marriage licence). Then it says 11 years and 9 months later, which would mean in the next scene it's October 1997 (when it's July 1998). It's 11 years and 9 months after the twins' birth and/or the parents' divorce. But we're not actually shown that part.

Question: What kind of wine was served on the Queen Elizabeth 2nd boat? I know it was a red wine that said "where dreams have no end wine 1983" but i've found that that wine is actually a white.
