'The Parent Trap' (1961, 1998)
Recommended for 6 and up; 1961, rated G; 1998, rated PG
You get a two for one with "The Parent Trap" because both versions — the original 1961 version with Hayley Mills and the updated 1998 version with Lindsay Lohan — are charming and fun. While both deal with some big issues like deception with both parents and kids withholding information, it's easy to overlook the premise and enjoy the films for what they are intended to be. The updated version contains more implications of sex and drinking than the original but not in any way that is particularly objectionable.
