Reviews
Mine: Gentle re-make never quite reaches the level of the orignal, but is still quite good. The Butler and Maid are great.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Delightful remake of the 1961 Disney hit about eleven-year-old girls who've been raised separately, meet each other for the first time at summer camp, and contrive to bring their parents back together--though Mom lives in London and Dad in California's Napa Valley. Nicely updated to the 1990s without losing the appeal of the original. Joanna Barnes, who played the "other woman" in the 1961 movie, appears here as that character's mother.

I completely agree with Chris on this one -- it's got a good cast and a fun script, kids will love it. In a way it's kind of sad that it must be compared to the original, which just blows everything out of the park.
