Elsie: You’re listening to A Stunning Mess Podcast, your cozy consolation pay attention. This week we’re discussing the Dad or mum Entice, the 1998 model starring Lindsay Lohan and directed by Nancy Myers. You knew this one was coming. That is an final summer time episode, so describing the film, for individuals who haven’t watched, I hope you’ve all watched this film. If you happen to haven’t, it’s on Disney Plus when you have Disney plus. I personally assume it’s one of the best factor on Disney Plus. That’s my primary factor if I am going on there for one thing that I simply wanna watch to placed on, I watched it not too long ago once I was like unpacking our kitchen, the day we bought our pod, and it’s simply such a very good consolation film to have on within the background whilst you’re doing one thing. It’s very joyful. Okay, so the premise is that this, equivalent twins, Annie and Holly separated at start in every race by one in all their organic dad and mom uncover one another for the primary time at summer time camp and make a plan to convey their wayward dad and mom again collectively. 

Emma: Sure. And let me simply say, this film is loopy, proper? The entire premise is nuts. I stored pondering that as I used to be watching it. So, we’ve finished loads of Nancy Meyers films already, and I’m positive we are going to do extra, however I believe that is the one one we’ve finished in perhaps her solely children’ film, it’s a family-friendly film. You recognize, prefer it’s sophisticated I wouldn’t essentially share that with a child. 

Elsie: I believe that is her solely child’s film formally.

Emma: Yeah, I believe so. This can be a family-friendly Disney Plus sort film. If you happen to’re watching a child’s film, you’re like, yeah, I’ll droop my disbelief fairly a bit right here as a result of I’m open to mermaids and magic. We’re doing children’ films. However I do really feel just like the premise of that is simply loopy. Are you able to think about having twins and being like, we wanna separate, so you’re taking one and I’ll take one other and we’re gonna reside in several international locations and never even inform them they’ve a sibling. How would you not miss the opposite child? I don’t know. The entire premise is wild. It’s completely wild. 

Elsie: The premise. Yeah, it’s a little bit offensive if you happen to let your self give it some thought. I’d suggest not doing that I’d suggest not enthusiastic about it an excessive amount of. 

Emma: They find yourself on the identical summer time camp. One in every of them lives in England and he or she results in a US summer time camp, the identical one as her twin sister who mentions that she’s throughout the nation to this summer time camp. So she lives in California and I suppose this summer time camp is, In New York or someplace. I don’t know the place it’s, nevertheless it’s someplace on the east coast cuz they talked about that.

Elsie: Yeah. I’ll inform you one factor I’m not making an attempt to do is use my children a summer time camp in a unique a part of the nation. 

Emma: I do know. They usually each find yourself selecting the identical one. The camp does look cute. I’ll give them that.

Elsie: It’s a cute camp. 

Emma: Yeah, it does look actually cute. And I really feel like that’s one factor that makes this a really summertime film as a result of summer time camp is so iconic, however they’re actually solely on the camp for the primary half-hour of the film or much less. So it’s not even essentially the most important half. 

Elsie: Yeah, however I find it irresistible. I’ve a lot enjoyable watching it each single time. This film’s insane and the little Lindsay Lohan British accent is lovable. 

Emma: It’s good.

Elsie: It’s humorous. I don’t know if it’s good or not. I’m not a British particular person. 

Emma: Simply ask children to do an accent for you, and I’ll inform you, this child is doing top-shelf Oscar-worthy in comparison with what’s on the market. I’m gonna make enjoyable. I can’t do accents. However ask any child round you, do an accent, do a British accent. This can be a good child accent, I’d say. She’s nailing it. She’s a little bit child. 

Elsie: Okay, so recollections from whenever you first watched this film? I don’t keep in mind the primary time I watched it, however I do know that I’ve watched it most likely greater than 10 instances. I’ve watched it fairly a bit. I keep in mind that I attempted to look at it with Nova firstly of the Covid quarantine period, and he or she was nonetheless too younger for it.

Emma: She was bored. 

Elsie: Yeah, I believe she was 5, she simply turned 5 at the moment. Yeah, It was boring for her and simply didn’t final, didn’t work. However now she watches it fairly a bit and it’s kicking in. 

Emma: I’m positive she’s like, what are all these pranks? Ought to I prank do these pranks?

Elsie: Yeah. I attempt to promote each film that’s not a cartoon as if it’s like Dwelling Alone as a result of that film is so standard in our home.

Emma: This one sort of is. They actually “Dwelling Alone” with one another all through the start after they’re at summer time camp, the pranks are elaborate. You’re like, the place did they get all these provides? How did they’ve time to set all this up? However they do by some means. 

Elsie: Sure. It’s wonderful. Yeah. 

Emma: The pranks are good. 

Elsie: Do you keep in mind whenever you first watched it?

Emma: I don’t know the way previous I used to be, however I keep in mind pondering I used to be fairly into Clueless rising up. And so I really feel prefer it will need to have been round that point I watched this for the primary time, I don’t know. As a result of I keep in mind pondering that the British one, Annie, all her little outfits jogged my memory of Clueless, a little bit child model of Clueless, as a result of she would have an identical headband. And she or he would have loads of plaid or tweet-looking sort issues. And I actually preferred that trigger I used to be very into the outfits, Annie’s particularly.

Elsie: That is smart. Oh my gosh. Yeah. I believe they’re most likely about the identical time. I believe Clueless is like 96 or 90. 

Emma: I don’t know. Let’s look it up. Now I’m curious trigger I’m like, I really feel like I watched this after Clueless, and I don’t know if I watched them each. I do know I watched Clueless across the time it got here out. 

Elsie: Clueless is 95, so it is a couple of years after. 

Emma: Okay. Yeah, that is smart. 

Elsie: Cool. Okay, let’s break down the decor inspiration. I believe that this film for me, it’s like a really sturdy love, after which there’s components of it the place you’re like eh, it’s very nineties. I don’t know. So the camp, I believe that the cabins are an enormous supply of inspiration.

Emma: I agree. 

Elsie: I like that aesthetic on the whole. 

Emma: It’s very like wooden, like log cabins, is the vibe. 

Elsie: For me with if I get a clothes advert in my e-mail and it appears like they’re photographed at like a campsite or by a cabin, I’m extra occupied with it, it appeals to me. So I simply assume that that’s identical to a very good aesthetic on the whole. And the opposite factor I wished to say is that final week, we cleared out the spot simply confirmed Emma in our yard, it was form of like jungley and simply problematic, vines that had been gonna kill timber and stuff. So it bought cleared out, which was so thrilling. After which, as soon as it bought cleared out, we realized there was like sort of this large part of the yard to the facet. It’s in our entrance yard, nevertheless it’s to the facet all the best way within the nook the place there’s sufficient room to construct a playhouse. So I’ve been pondering of constructing a cabin-style playhouse. 

Emma: That will be cute. 

Elsie: So yeah, that is the factor I would like emails about and DMs and every part is your greatest inspiration for a cabin-style tree home, a playhouse. I’m open about the way it’s constructed, however I believe I do need it to be two tales and I would like it to be fairly epic if I’m gonna go for the work. Yeah, I would like it to be one thing they’ll climb up in and it feels very magical to them. Anyway, so yeah, cabins are an enormous inspiration and I like that a part of this film and I believe it’s good that it’s firstly as a result of it simply units the scene for the entire thing. 

Emma: Yeah, they usually all have like duffel baggage as they’re exhibiting as much as camp and there’s a college bus dropping a number of the children off or their children are clearly getting dropped off by their dad and mom. Annie exhibits up in a limo, I believe, which once more, is what’s occurring with this. After which I really feel just like the camp counselors put on uniforms. They’ve a sure sort of uniform aesthetic, which is de facto, actually cute. However yeah, not an enormous a part of the film is even on the camps, however I really feel like for the way a lot of an impression it leaves, it’s an enormous inside impression for a small period of time within the film. Let’s discuss it. Annie’s home and Hallie’s home as a result of after camp they resolve to modify locations they usually’re gonna mother or father entice their dad and mom, which suggests they’re gonna get ’em again collectively. And I felt like I had sort of forgotten, however as I used to be watching it once more, I used to be like, oh, I really feel like one in all these homes is sort of what Elsie would do within the nineties and one of many homes, as a result of they’re each very nineties after which one of many homes, I used to be like, that’s the one I’d need.

Elsie: Okay, so I’d need Annie’s home for positive. 

Emma: That’s what I assumed, the British Home.

Elsie: I can see what you’d see within the Winery Home for positive. So the British home is a stupendous brownstone and also you stroll right into a staircase and the colours are very nineties, which I discover pleasant. I like the nineties, one in all my favourite interiors of all time is the Dwelling Alone home. It has the same colour palette to that, however a little bit extra peachy. There’s a research the place her grandfather is, which I don’t know if which means their grandfather lives with them, that half is unclear. 

Emma: Type of appeared like perhaps, however perhaps don’t know. 

Elsie: I imply, why else would he have a research of their home? 

Emma: Yeah, it appeared like a much bigger home. So perhaps all of them reside there? Yeah, I don’t know.

Elsie: I just like the peachy tones. I like the standard, I believe nineties conventional decor is unquestionably up my alley. I ought to give a shout-out, our buddy Elise has been doing this collection on her Instagram. So her Instagram is @ Elise Pleasure, and he or she’s been doing this collection for greater than 20 components, and it’s a collection about older design books, like within the inspiration, she finds them they usually’re largely from the nineties. Yeah, I’d say they’re largely from the nineties. So positively test that out when you have any sort of a mushy spot. I did a thrift books corridor of all of Martha Stewart’s books from the eighties, nineties, and early two thousand. Simply each Martha Stewart guide that I used to be occupied with, I purchased in in the future and it was like numerous good nineties inspiration. Anyway, the London home is for positive mine. 

Emma: It’s, I really feel prefer it has some painted molding too. Which I felt like a very good match for you. I really feel like your present home has loads of authentic wooden. So that you’re not portray that, however like when it’s already painted, loads of instances you paint it the identical colour because the room, issues like that. And there was one different factor. Oh yeah, so there’s the scene the place it’s really Hallie, however she’s pretending she’s Annie and he or she’s assembly her mother for the primary time they usually’re in her mother’s bed room speaking, I believe they’re about to go to a photograph shoot or one thing, and he or she is her mother’s dresser or vainness and there’s this crystal, I believe it’s a lamp that has like these crystals hanging off of it, and also you see her fragrance bottles. And I believe what the film’s wanting us to really feel is, she grew up with no mother and now she’s seeing all this quote-unquote girly stuff sort of factor. Or only a completely different aesthetic that’s not in her present life. And she or he’s exploring that and discovering it lovely. You possibly can see the look on Lindsay Lohan’s face, she’s simply amazed. They usually make the crystal, the sunshine from it, dance on her face. It’s virtually like she’s discovering her mother by way of the decor as properly, and I simply actually liked that a part of the film. I simply really feel like they accomplish that a lot with units in Nancy Meyer’s films, so it’s enjoyable after they use it as part of the story. And that half for me identical to actually stood out as they’re educating us about her mom and the best way she feels about assembly her mom from her vainness of fragrance bottles and no matter else. It’s very cute. However sure, let’s discuss in regards to the winery.

Elsie: That’s so candy.

Emma: It’s so candy, proper? I actually felt like these had been the components of the film the place I teared up when Lindsay Lohan’s character is assembly her different mother or father for the primary time, she’s the opposite twin since you might simply see it, she simply did such a very good job. She was identical to, I’m so completely satisfied to see you. And she or he’s imagined to have been gone for eight weeks, so the dad and mom don’t actually suspect something. They’re like, after all, she’s completely satisfied to be again. She’s been gone for 2 months, however they don’t understand at first that it’s the opposite twin they usually’re really assembly them for the very first time. Yeah, it’s wild. Anyway, 

Elsie: I did cry loads of instances. I used to be in a crying temper this time.

Emma: I used to be too. I used to be like on my own simply hanging out. I used to be like, oh, that is so candy. However sure, the winery home is the home I’d need. The London home is gorgeous, I’d reside in both of these homes, however the winery Home, it’s on a winery, which is simply cool. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t have a dream about being in a winery or proudly owning a winery. And I don’t have a inexperienced thumb, so I couldn’t really do it, however by some means, it’s nonetheless sort of a fantasy in my thoughts. However there’s this scene the place, Hallie, who’s really Annie, however Hallie with a twin is strolling by way of and there’s these like large terracotta tile flooring in the lounge. So the lounge is that this tiled flooring that’s identical to heat and fairly. And I felt like for the nineties they had been doing this vibe in that home the place it was like imagined to really feel a little bit bit like Tuscany or one thing, though it’s in California.

Elsie: I believe it’s just like the wine nation aesthetic.

Emma: Yeah, wine nation aesthetic, after which I believe it’s imagined to really feel a little bit bit fashionable like loads of the artwork in his home could be very nineties fashionable if that makes any sense. Or like late, late eighties fashionable is sort of what it felt like. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s like minimal is Mr. Cool Man? 

Emma: Yeah. Mr. Cool man. It positively felt like that. And I’m a wannabe Mr. Cool man, I suppose. So I liked that home. Any little glimpse into it? It’s like an enormous home too. They present the skin and it’s this big mansion, however I really feel like they solely present us so many interiors, however I used to be actually into it. I used to be like, I’d wanna reside on this home. It appears cozy, nevertheless it appears sort of fashionable. It appears heat and comfortable, however a little bit bit like you’ll be able to go indoor out of doors so much. I don’t know, it simply appears.

Elsie: My favourite a part of his house is his wine basement or wine cellar as a result of it’s very fancy. After which he has this little chest with further fancy wine bottles in it. And when he pulls out the one and says that it was from their marriage ceremony, I did like absolutely cry at that half. 

Emma: That’s my favourite a part of the film. 

Elsie: However I additionally don’t settle for that if he was taking the time to do all that, he didn’t attempt to be together with her. I suppose you must simply droop perception although. 

Emma: I don’t completely purchase the love story ’trigger I’m like, they hardly battle in any respect after they get again collectively. 

Elsie: They don’t actually look like they’ve any issues aside from perhaps they wanna reside elsewhere, which they don’t actually resolve. 

Emma: They usually don’t actually resolve that. I’m like, that’s your largest drawback. You each have careers which might be in different places very a lot. 

Elsie: That’s okay although. 

Emma: Yeah, it’s positive, it’s a Disney no matter, however. Yeah. I used to be like, I don’t actually purchase this love story, however that’s my favourite a part of the film. After they go down into his, what’s it referred to as? 

Elsie: His wine cellar. 

Emma: Yeah. After they go down into the wine cellar.

Elsie: And it’s dusty and it’s vibey and it’s romantic, and he’s exhibiting her one thing that he most likely hasn’t proven his different girlfriend, which is like romantic. 

Emma: And I like that he clearly had uncommon bottles, he’s imagined to be a millionaire. However I like when he begins exhibiting off the sentimental bottles, together with their marriage ceremony, but in addition I believe he had one from his dad and mom’ marriage ceremony and that’s actually cute too. I liked the concept of a sentimental wine assortment.

Elsie: Effectively, the wine from my marriage ceremony nonetheless sells at Dealer Joe’s, so I might gather that one. 

Emma: Good. Yeah. However do you might have the best 12 months? You will have the best classic. 

Elsie: I don’t know if wine from Dealer Joe’s is meant to be aged.

Emma: Unclear as we’ve talked about in earlier episodes we actually love canned wine, so I don’t know if we actually are the wine-collecting varieties but, however I like his assortment. 

Elsie: I’m getting my sommelier license, and it’s a Dealer Joe’s minor.

Emma: I imply, if you happen to had been like at Dealer Joe’s and also you’re like, I’m the Dealer Joe’s sommelier, I’d be like, good. 

Elsie: They might use one. I agree with that. 

Emma: That’s nice. 

Elsie: I agree with that, thanks. Okay. Effectively, I would like that winery mansion for you, I believe it’s good. I completely get it. 

Emma: It’s pretty. I liked it.

Elsie: He has horses. He has a pool. They each have dream homes, it’s fairly nice. Okay. So the lodge, I didn’t make any notes in regards to the lodge.

Emma: I didn’t actually just like the lodge prefer it had a fantastic pool, however after they’re like within the room, I used to be like, I don’t like this furnishings, it felt like a lodge. It’s not just like the set designers did like a foul job. I used to be like, this doesn’t encourage me, this isn’t my type. That is the nineties no good for me, aside from the pool. It was a fantastic pool. 

Elsie: The pool scene is every part. And I believe I’m very distracted by their little outfits at that time, that are actually cute.

Emma: While you’re making an attempt to maintain observe of ’em simply there.

Elsie: And the drunk mother. There’s so much occurring to maintain your consideration apart from the lodge.

Emma: The bar was cute. However yeah, the lodge room, I wasn’t that into.

Elsie: Okay. The boat, that is additionally one of the crucial unbelievable components of the film, however it’s good.

Emma: It’s lovable. 

Elsie: I believe that having a ship love story is principally so cute. I like how the film begins, the opening scenes, and the image that’s ripped in half, which you’d by no means do, however I find it irresistible.

Emma: No, you’d by no means do this. 

Elsie: And we have to cease trolling a child’s film. I believe {that a} boat aesthetic, it’s sort of like, the La Delrey like Americana factor, I believe it’s cute. I like that sort of aesthetic.

Emma: What did you consider the tenting journey? Neither of us is like large campers, however I do really feel like there’s some nostalgia to it.

Elsie: Yeah. For me, if I’m gonna camp, I would like it to be in a cabin. For me a tent is one thing, the celebs aligned for us. We’re identical to a tough no about waking up in a scorching tent one single time for the remainder of our lives. So it’s simply not gonna occur. I find it irresistible for Prince Harry, nevertheless it’s simply not for me. So I don’t know. I believe I like the scene the place Meredith wakes up in the midst of the lake on her air mattress. 

Emma: I used to be like, would that work? I really feel like I’ve by no means had a very good air mattress, they’re at all times flat by the morning. 

Elsie: I believe it will positively work.

Emma: That’d be good. 

Elsie: It’s a pool floaty, principally. 

Emma: I don’t know why she freaked out then as a result of it sounds good, I’d get up on the water. 

Elsie: It’s her complete character is overacting, that’s what she’s good for. I like her. I’ll say she’s nice casting, good. She’s good. 

Emma: She actually did it up. On this position, she nailed it. You like to hate her.

Elsie: Yeah. I can’t consider every other cozy inspiration, I suppose, the wine, the dusty wine bottles for me, and the marriage picture shoot with the white high hat. I actually felt like that was, Iconic. I’m positive on the time it most likely didn’t appear cool both. I don’t see the way it might have, it’s sort of like a humorous, it’s sort of like an iconic a part of this film. You may make a meme out of the white high hat, which I like. 

Emma: You could possibly. Additionally like Lindsay Lohan’s within the pictures a bunch, and I’m sort of like, What are they utilizing these pictures for? How is that this random little lady within the shot gonna assist promote this marriage ceremony? It’s simply so bizarre. It’s such a bizarre scene and it’s humorous and it’s enjoyable, nevertheless it’s actually bizarre. It’s actually bizarre. 

Elsie: It’s. Okay, so trivia time. So I’ve a trivia that’s not on this record, so I’ll say it first. And that is alleged, okay. I heard that for Disney Plus, I’ve no option to test this as a result of the place I watched this film is Disney Plus, however I heard that they lower a scene from the film, which has Hollie and Annie making an attempt wine. So that they lower it out for Disney Plus? 

Emma: Oh, no, she tries wine. 

Elsie: Oh, it’s in there? 

Emma: Yeah. Oh yeah. She tries wine, it’s Hallie, now, I can’t keep in mind. 

Elsie: Hallie. 

Emma: Yeah, it’s Hallie as a result of she’s grown up in a winery, so I suppose we’re imagined to assume that she a minimum of has information about wine. Possibly she doesn’t drink wine, I don’t know. However, she’s imagined to have information about wine. In order she’s pretending to be Annie, she has a sip of her mother’s wine. Then she’s like, really, I want a extra full-bodied blah, blah. I don’t keep in mind what she says, however one thing, and it makes them snort. After which she falls out of her chair as a result of she’s this word behind the butler’s again. Then I believe she had a little bit an excessive amount of after which she runs off. So it’s nonetheless in there. 

Elsie: Okay. I take it again. 

Emma: It’s only one little sip and he or she’s in England. I really feel prefer it’s extra chill over there as a result of the ingesting age is eighteen. She’s not 18 on this film.

Elsie: She’s 10. 

Emma: Yeah, I don’t know, it’s within the film. I don’t know of all the issues I’ve with this film. I suppose that wasn’t one in all ’em. That’s humorous although. I might see them taking it out although really on main networks, like not eager to take care of it. 

Elsie: I ought to of appeared up forward of time as a result of perhaps, I don’t know. Who is aware of what occurred? 

Emma: Okay. Effectively right here’s one other trivia. So the actress, Joanna Barnes, performed the depraved girlfriend within the Dad or mum Entice in 1961 and he or she performs the mom of the depraved girlfriend on this model. I do know isn’t that cool. And the 1998 model, the depraved girlfriend’s title is Meredith slightly than Vicky, however Joanna Barnes’s character because the mom within the newer Dad or mum Entice continues to be Vicky. I believe that’s sort of cute. 

Elsie: I find it irresistible. 

Emma: Yeah, I used to be into that. 

Elsie: Okay, the following one is Lindsay Lohan’s function movie debut, which I suppose that is smart trigger I can’t keep in mind something the place she was youthful. Yeah, she’s so cute on this film, lovable. 

Emma: I assumed she was so good on this. So, yeah. It’s loopy to me that this was her function movie. I’m positive she had finished performing earlier than this. Clearly, they didn’t simply pluck her off the road. However I don’t actually know, to be trustworthy. And like I stated, I really feel like her accent for a little bit child is superb. I believe she does a reasonably good job. Higher than I’d do and I’m 37. Okay, the following one is Natasha Richardson, who performs Elizabeth, the mom. She tragically died on the age of 45 following a snowboarding accident in Canada, forsaking her husband, Liam Neeson, and their two sons Daniel and Michael. 

Elsie: Yeah. This was really within the Joan Didion guide, A 12 months of Magical Pondering. I’m fairly positive that’s the one, however I’ve learn a bunch of ’em so it might blur collectively. However she talks about, I believe she was like a household buddy and he or she talks about her loss of life and every part.

And I really didn’t know that. That could be very unhappy. I didn’t know that this actor was the identical particular person from that story. That’s very unhappy. 

Emma: Very, very unhappy. 45 is simply approach too younger and like a snowboarding accident so tragic since you wouldn’t have as a lot time to organize. When you might have a member of the family that’s sick, you might have extra time to organize. However yeah. She’s so fantastic on this film.

Elsie: She’s so lovely. 

Emma: She’s so lovely. She kinda has Princess Diana hair. I don’t know, she’s simply lovely. 

Elsie: She’s a basic magnificence. Okay, Chessy is called after a buddy of Nancy Meyers. The actual-life Chessy is a decorator, which is smart on condition that Nancy Meyers is known for cozy interiors featured in most of her films.

Emma: I really feel like she at all times names characters after one in all her daughters or after a buddy. There’s at all times one thing like that in a Nancy Meyers. 

Elsie: Yeah. Aren’t her daughters named Annie and Hallie? I believe that’s a truth. 

Emma: Oh, are they?

Elsie: Yeah. 

Emma: As a result of I do know one other film we did there was a personality, I really feel like perhaps it was Annie and it was named after her daughter. So that is each her daughters, that’s cute. 

Elsie: Effectively, for positive I do know one in all her daughters is called Hallie as a result of she’s the one which directed Dwelling Once more. 

Emma: Oh, that’s cool. Okay. Simon Kunz, who performs Martin and Lindsay Lohan got here up with Annie and Martin’s signature handshake themselves within the span of some hours.

Elsie: Wonderful. 

Emma: I consider the few hours half as a result of it’s an elaborate handshake. I liked it.

Elsie: I believe I really feel impressed, I wanna do it with my children. I wish to have a secret handshake. And it’s good. 

Emma: Yeah. And within the film, it’s the opposite twin, so it’s clearly like she taught this to her whereas they had been at camp and it’s actually elaborate. So it’s identical to this humorous little scene, and he or she nails it. And so that you’re like, they’re gonna be capable of do that, they’re gonna be capable of swap locations. She nailed the handshake. 

Elsie: Sure. Earlier than Lindsay Lohan was forged within the Dad or mum Entice Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Mara Wilson had been additionally thought-about for the position, and actress Jenna Maloney was provided the half however turned it down 3 times. I’d like to listen to the story behind that, about why she was doing one thing else or one thing. Yeah, she was most likely busy. I believe it was meant for Lindsay Lohan, so I’m glad that she bought the half she’s good in it. Can’t actually see anybody else.
