In honor of Lindsay Lohan’s career making a comeback, let’s take a look at her most famous roles we would love to see make a resurgence!

Get a Clue

In this comedy and mystery film, Lohan stars alongside Brenda Song as a young girl, Lexy, who writes for her school newspaper’s gossip column. After she publishes a picture of her teachers, one of them goes missing. Lexy and her friends are determined to get to the bottom of it and go on a series of adventures to do so. By the end, the two teachers get married and live happily ever after. We would love to see Lohan and Song reunite as adults in New York City, writing for a major newspaper or magazine. They could be presented with another mystery to solve, bringing back people from their past.

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

This iconic film portrays Lohan as a young aspiring Broadway actress named Lola. Her family makes a big move from New York to New Jersey, making it even harder to pursue her dreams. As the new girl in school, Lola becomes enemies with the popular girl, Carla, played by Megan Fox. After a series of adventures, lies, and drama, Lola performs in the play over Carla. Fans would love to see a Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen reboot, reuniting Lola and Carla in pursuit of a Broadway role as adults.

The Parent Trap

Lindsay Lohan is arguably most known for her very first role in The Parent Trap. If you are not familiar with The Parent Trap, the story follows twins Hallie and Annie (both played by Lohan), as they are reunited 11 years after being separated at birth by their parents Nicholas Parker (Dennis Quaid) and Elizabeth James (Natasha Richardson). In an effort to get their parents back together, the twins switch places as they return home from summer camp, spending time with the opposite parent. In the end, the parents get married and live happily ever after. In a potential revival, viewers would love to see the twins navigate life as adults, bringing back the iconic cast as well.

Freaky Friday

Lohan stars alongside Jamie Lee Curtis as mother-daughter duo Anna and Tess Coleman. The film starts with the two in constant disagreements about each other’s lives, not being able to understand each other’s point of view. One night when out to eat at Pei-Pei’s Chinese restaurant, the two get into a fight, until Pei-Pei’s mother gives the two of them magic fortune cookies. The next morning Anna and Tess wake up in each other’s bodies, now having to live each other’s lives. By the end of the movie, they begin to have empathy for each other, resolve conflict, and eventually switchback. In a Freaky Friday revival, Anna and Tess could accidentally switch lives again, but maybe on vacation in a different location this time.

Mean Girls

Last, but certainly not least, we would love to see a revival. Starring as Katie Heron, Lindsay Lohan joins a very stacked cast with Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey, Amanda Seyfried, Amy Poehler, and more. The teen comedy film follows high school cliques, bullying, and all aspects of navigating American high school. As the new girl in town, Katie Heron enters a new school, after being homeschooled in Africa her whole life. She ultimately lands herself in “The Plastics” mean girl group, which ends up being a big mistake, to say the least. Viewers would love to see this movie come back with the original cast, as they navigate the same hierarchy, but within adult life.

Overall, Lindsay Lohan is a staple actress of the early 2000s we will always know and love. We cannot wait to see what she does in her career ahead, but we hope a revival of any of these films is in the mix.
