The Parent Trap (1998)

Starting off strong, we have The Parent Trap, a film about two long-lost sisters separated at birth who discover each other while at summer camp. Identical twins Annie and Hallie, played both by Lindsay Lohan, decide to switch places with their divorced parents in order to meet their other parent and eventually rekindle their parents’ love.

Life Size (2000)

In an attempt to bring her mother back from the dead, a widower’s daughter, Casey Stuart, aka Lindsay Lohan, brings a doll named Eve, played by Tyra Banks, to life instead. A film that turns into a heartfelt lesson and the discovery of new friendships within a doll-making company, it’s not hard to see why many hold it dear to their lives.

Freaky Friday (2003)

This iconic film centers on the mother-daughter relationship of Tess (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Anna Coleman (Lohan), a teenager who feels like her mother is not understanding her and vice versa. The pair receives two fortune cookies that make them swap bodies. The whole experience is supposed to bring both mother and daughter closer to one another, although many mishaps happen along the way.

Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen (2004)

Who could forget this iconic film?! Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen is about a teenage girl named Lola who moves from New York City to the suburbs of New Jersey and has to attend a new school. Her hopes of becoming an actress get pushed back as she restarts as a new student and attempts to make it as the popular girl, pitting her in competition with drama queen Carla Santini (Megan Fox).

Mean Girls (2004)

There’s no doubt Lindsay Lohan was booked and busy during the 2000s, and this next film is one that never gets old. Turned into a musical which is now becoming a new movie, and based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabees by Rosalind Wiseman, the film is about a homeschooled girl Cady Heron, played by Lohan, who embarks on a new life as a public high school student. She encounters “The Plastics,” led by Regina George (Rachel McAdams), who is the school’s popular clique. Cady makes the mistake of falling for Regina George’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett), which leads to Cady learning how tough high school can really be.

Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005)

Former racecar driver Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton) is the father to Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan). She has a passion for racing, but he does not want her to be part of NASCAR racing events that he feels her brother (Breckin Meyer) should partake in instead, although he is not the best. She eventually gets to choose her own car at a junkyard that her father takes her to, and she chooses Herbie, a Volkswagen beetle that changes her life.
