She's All That
These two opposites attract... but EVERYONE'S trying to keep them apart!
High school hotshot Zach Siler (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is the envy of his peers. But his popularity declines sharply when his cheerleader girlfriend, Taylor (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), leaves him for sleazy reality-television star Brock Hudson (Matthew Lillard). Desperate to revive his fading reputation, Siler agrees to a seemingly impossible challenge. He has six weeks to gain the trust of nerdy outcast Laney Boggs (Rachael Leigh Cook) -- and help her to become the school's next prom queen.
While this is a first time watch for me, I can see all the elements here that made this late 90s flick a romance classic.
It's quite funny, very sweet and contains characters with a relative amount of charisma. Plus, there was enough nostalgic components here to help me enjoy it regardless.
A nice easy, romantic watch...
I can't believe I missed this film in the 90s. Apparently, my brother did as well, so I sat him down to watch it.
He too liked it. Bit late to the game as a family, aren't we...
Rachael Leigh Cook, what a peach! I hear she's in a TV series, or something like that.
Every scene makes me think of Not Another Teen Movie because there is just that much to mock, but She's All That is a great example of a formulaic high-school comedy drama; one that we can't help but enjoy it for what it is.
I've been barfing my way through the 90's lately. This one is truly a spectacle of nauseating cliches and foolishness. Having been (questionably) ghost written by M. Night Shyamalan it's a proverbial shit show of all things superficial and loathsome. An exercise in bad taste, a masterpiece of douchebaggery, teenage garbage cinema at it's absolute worst <3
This one has a lot of sentimental value attached to it. But a rewatch confirms: It's pretty bad.
because of this: www.yorubagirldancing.com/2014/01/20/shes-all-that-15-years-and-5000-words/ excellent piece, She's All That has been in my mind for a few days, and I decided to fire it up when I scrolled past it on netflix.
I hated it when it came out, I was so angry I had wasted my turn renting the videos for the weekend on it that I haven't watched it since I was 11. I still don't really like it now. Not Another Teen Movie is just so much better isn't it? this film is fucking weird.
This is 90s teen movies at their best... Follows the formula to the tee, and surprisingly makes an enjoyable watch, even after all these years.... Rachel Leigh Cook, is so sweet and cute in this, I think I fell in love with her when I watched this back in my teens.... And this is also a flaw in this movie, all Laney Boggs needed to do was loose the glasses and trim her hair, and she became a bombshell!? Yeah.....
Still, this is nostalgia from a simpler time, where out didn't need to throw in sex and nudity ala American pie, to get a rise out of the teens... 2.5/5
halter top city!
Needs more Matthew Lillard.
got nothing to say
Very Young Paul Walker movie
No worries were given to Paul Walker during the viewing of this movie.
The plot may be predictable and the acting may be so-so, but there's an eighty's style dance number for no reason, and I just can't say no to that.
Formula teen romance but good cast and performances. Rachael Leigh Cook is really beautiful.
