After Hallie arrives in London, her mother takes her to a photo shoot. Above this, we hear a cover version of "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles, one of the songs on their album "Abbey Road". As we watch Hallie and her mother on her way, they cross the same street the same way as The Beatles did for the cover photo of the album "Abbey Road". Even the cars on the side are the same.

Hallie as Annie:
That's where I have to go; I have to go see Annie!
I see, and where might Annie be?
Hallie as Annie:
In Napa, with her father Nick Parker.
You're not Annie?
That would be correct.
Hallie as Annie:
I am. Annie and I met up at camp and, and we decided to switch places. I'm sorry, but I've never seen you and I've dreamt of meeting you my whole life and Annie felt the exact same way about Dad so, so we sort of just ...

I was skeptical at first, but this really was an adorable movie
Beleive you me was i skeptical of this movie. First of all the original is a highly regarded film in my house. If it's on t.v the world stops for it. And beleive me when I first heard about the remake i was very very angry because hardly ever does a remake even compare to the original. I didn't understand it of course. Especially how a movie like that cold work in the 90's. I mean reality check what court, let alone parents, in the world would decide to split up a pair of twins let each parent have one never let them even know about the other one and never let them see each one ever again? Puh-Leeze. But boy was I ever wrong.
This movie has every bit as much charm as the original and it's ending (I won't give it away) makes much more sence than the original, they-just-get-together-without-talking-any-of-there- problems-out original.
And huge props to Lindsy Lohen on the accents. I am very big on accents and was overwhelmed at how good she was. I see big things for her.
So go see it. It's truly captivating.
