She's All That
These two opposites attract... but EVERYONE'S trying to keep them apart!
High school hotshot Zach Siler is the envy of his peers. But his popularity declines sharply when his cheerleader girlfriend, Taylor, leaves him for sleazy reality-television star Brock Hudson. 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 -- 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.
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
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.
This one has a lot of sentimental value attached to it. But a rewatch confirms: It's pretty bad.
In spite of a great cast, She’s All That ultimately lacks the self-awareness to transcend the teen-flick tropes it relies so heavily on. The film has become a pointed reference in popular culture in how it un-ironically engages uses stereotype after stereotype in order to affirm the status quo. In many ways, the film does a disservice to the audience it is aimed towards, offering unfair expectations about happiness, beauty and love. The film seems to miss the boat on what Pygmalion was really about, offering an unconvincing transformation that misunderstands the social dynamics of high school and adolescence. There is, however, a lot of fun here. Rachel Leigh Cooke is absurdly charming and channels a similar ethos of Winona…
I want that football
η πιο αγγούρω πρωταγωνίστρια έβερ, νιώθω πολύ άβολα.
Guilty as charged, some teenage movies are somethimes worth to be watched again. Not that I consider that one as a classic like the Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, Wierd Science... well mostly John Hughes movies that I can watch every year, but I has it's charms. Rachael Leigh Cook for example. ;-)
Seriously, by watching it again 15 years later made we wonder what happened to her and matthew Lillard and made me realise I didn't remembered that Anna Paquin, Kieran Culkin and... Paul Wlaker were in. So it's all that actually.
The plot is almost numbingly predictable, but one of the movie's strengths is that it makes clear that Zach and Laney have both limited themselves by defining themselves before they have really had a chance to find out who they really are. The movie's other strengths are Prinze, who has a wonderful screen presence and the magnificent Anna Paquin as his younger sister. Cook's performance is flat by comparison. Jodi Lyn O'Keefe is a caricature of Zach's former girlfriend, but Matthew Lillard is hilarious as a self-obsessed gross-out champion based on MTV's legendary Puck.
Rachel Leigh Cook was already cute even before that iconic "Kiss Me" makeover, y'all tripping.
Also seeing Paul Walker pre-Fast and Furious is so weird.
this is objectively better than blowup
It's cliche ridden but I couldn't help like it for what it is.
p.s. I preferred Rachel Leigh Cook pre-makeover in this.
tbh how can u not even find this a little bit enjoyable. cheese is amazing
The freaking hacky-sack scene 😂
This movie is a precious gem.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
More and more often as I watch films about relationships, I find myself thinking, "if someone did this in real…
