If you grew up around the '90s and early '00s, chances are one of your favorite movies of all time is Disney's The Parent Trap. You LOVED it — but you viscerally hated its epic villain, Meredith Blake, the inappropriately young girlfriend who tries every trick in the book to prevent her boyfriend from reuniting with his wife and twins.
However, now that all of us are in our 20s or 30s and downtrodden by the harsh realities of adulthood, Meredith has become somewhat of an icon. We root for her now — utilizing your youth and beauty to land a wildly handsome (and caring!) older man with tons of money to boot? Get yours, girl, you do you.
In the film itself, Lindsay Lohan's twin sister characters despise Meredith and attempt to humiliate her at every turn — but a photo shoot from a couple years back proves Lohan also turned out to be just like Meredith. We're honestly here for it.
And that's not a bad thing!
You know, seeing as Meredith is a prime role model for young women who love money and men and hate children (um, hi). In recent years, fans of the film have been expressing how it should've treated her character better — admit it: At least part of you wants to see Meredith get what she came for.
