Top 5 Mistaken Identity Films for the Whole Family
You can win a DVD copy debuting Oct. 18
A classically fun tale for the entire family is one of mistaken identity, especially when tons of hijinks and shenanigans ensue after a movie character is thought to be someone different. With the Selena Gomez flick Monte Carlo debuting for home entertainment on Oct. 18, we have compiled a Top 5 list of these kid-friendly stories of twins, lookalikes and doppelgangers.
Selena Gomez stars in Monte Carlo as Grace, a recent college graduate who is ready to live out her idea of a perfect vacation with BFF Emma (Katie Cassidy) to Paris. After several twists and turns, including her unhappy stepsister Meg (Leighton Meester) joining them on the trip, Grace falls into a fairytale of her very own in the French Riviera.
1) The Parent Trap (1998)
In this remake of the classic Disney film of the 1960s, Lindsay Lohan stars as both Hallie and Annie, identical twin sisters separated after their parents split. Hallie ended up with her father Nick (Dennis Quaid) in the U.S. and Annie grew up in London with mom Elizabeth (Natasha Richardson). When the two meet at summer camp, they hatch a brilliant scheme to reunite them and their parents by switching places.
2) The Lizzie McGuire Movie
The spin-off feature length film from the Disney Channel original series follows Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff) to Rome where she gets mistaken for an international pop star named Isabella Parigi. Isabella is known for her ballads with heartthrob Paulo Valisari (Yani Gellman), and when the two have a big fight, Lizzie is asked to save the day.
3) Model Behavior
Alex Burroughs (Maggie Lawson) wishes she could have a picture perfect life of photo shoots and racks of clothes and Janine Adams (also Lawson) yearns for a little bit of normalcy. When the two run into each other and realize the resemblance, they switch lives. Things get a little complicated when Alex must deal with Janine’s terrible mother Dierdra (Kathie Lee Gifford) and cute fellow model Jason (Justin Timberlake).
4) She’s the Man
This spin on the Shakespeare tale “Twelfth Night” revolves around Viola (Amanda Bynes) as she takes her brother’s place at school and on the soccer team when he decides to skip out for a couple of weeks. While at the boarding school and posing as her brother, she falls for one of his soccer teammates Duke (Channing Tatum). In the meantime, Duke has a crush on Olivia (Laura Ramsey) who in turn likes Sebastian (James Kirk).
5) Monte Carlo
While on vacation with her BFF and stepsister, Grace (Selena Gomez) is mis-identified as British heiress Cordelia Winthrop Scott who is in Monte Carlo for several important appearances. These events are leading up to a huge auction raising money for charity that the spoiled Cordelia must be at, even if Grace must pose as her for the show to go on.
