How fucked up is the entire concept of The Parent Trap? These parents have twins but want a divorce so they decide their best course of action is to just each take one and never speak to each other again.
what she means:
the parent trap soundtrack is truly iconic, from start to finish. for example, the parents first get married to the sound of L-O-V-E, sung by nat king cole, and then, when they get remarried, it's to this will be (an everlasting love), sung by natalie cole, nat king cole's daughter, which mirrors the significant role their own daughters have taken in their love lives/family lives in the film.
What she means:
so did the parents in parent trap just pick a random baby they would take right after their fight and decided they would never see the other child again? They seemed overjoyed to meet the other child so why did they do it? Did they never think of the possibility of ever meeting their other child again? Did a higher force decide to do this? How fucked up are these parents?
Ed grows up with Roy, hence the brashness or the infamous short rants because Roy just teases him about his height all the time. Also will fite anyone because his dad’s coworkers like Havoc and Breda are merciless and have little playful wrestling matches with him.
Al grows up with Riza, so he grows up to be quiet and polite and is sunshine son™. Is adored by his honorary aunt and godmother Rebecca and grandpa Grumman.
They meet at camp, find out they’re twins, switch places, and attempt to get their parents back together.
Meredith is Lust? With her scheming family (the homonculi 😂) who, along with her, wants Roy’s fortune.
Also Havoc and Rebecca meet and fall in love along the way
