Released in 1998, it found Lohan playing the dual roles of Annie James and Hallie Parker, 11-year-old twin sisters, separated at birth who then by chance meet up at summer camp.

They then hatch a plan to get their family back together.

It was a remake the 1961 Disney movie starring Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith.

The movie was Lohan's screen debut and catapulted her to stardom and a host of other Disney movies, including Freaky Friday and Confessions of a Drama Queen, before hitting further acclaim in Mean Girls.
