Here’s the 411: ‘The Parent Trap’ is one of THE best movies of the ’90s and it was basically a dream come true when Elaine Hendrix — AKA Meredith in the movie — and her ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ co-star Elizabeth Gillies recreated a scene from it. WATCH!
Elizabeth Gillies, 22, and Elaine Hendrix, 44, make an amazing Hallie and Meredith, even in 2015. The Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll stars recreated a classic scene from 1998’s The Parent Trap, and while Elaine stepped into her original role with perfection, it was Liz who really stood out as a Lindsay Lohan doppelgänger. Check out the video right here!
Lindsay, is that you?! Liz Gillies sounds just like LiLo in her and Elaine’s spoof of the famous scene from The Parent Trap, in which evil stepmother-to-be Meredith confronts 11-year-old Hallie to try and tell her who’s boss. As plaid-shirt-wearing, pigtail-sporting Hallie, Liz is every bit the smart aleck as Lindsay was, and completely nails her inflection — their voices even sound totally similar. Watch the video to see for yourself!
Liz tweeted the video on Oct. 11, Hallie and Annie (the other Parent Trap twin)’s birthday:

Elaine also tweeted a reference to one of her character’s most famous lines (“the day we get married is the day I ship those brats off to Switzerland”):

What a perfect birthday tribute — this movie is literally the gift that keeps on giving.
