Co-written by director Nancy Meyers, producer Charles Shyer and David Swift, the latter of whom wrote and directed the original, the film follows Hallie Parker and Annie James, twin sisters who were separated shortly after their birth when their parents divorced. After being reunited at summer camp and being curious about the parents they didn’t grow up with, they devise a plan to swap lives and bring their parents back together to be a happy family once again, as well as stop the marriage between their dad and his child-hating girlfriend.
