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…
The freaking hacky-sack scene 😂
This movie is a precious gem.
This one's a classic.
Re-watch. Still don't love it and it's nowhere near the phenomenal 90s coming-of-age flicks.
hahaha. what a cast! hahah
my favorite movies are when someone dates someone else because of a bet or something like that. this one hits all the beats. it's fun.
Netflix (leaving 7/1). Not sure how I missed this one back in the day. I remember it coming out, but I could have sworn it was 1997.
It's a solid teenage rom-com- no surprises here, you know where it's going right from the beginning. But sometimes that's not a bad thing if it's done well. Such is the case here- the script is sharp and witty. The cast is charming and funny. And Rachel Leigh Cook is just too darn cute.
Not to mention, it's an explosion of 90's nostalgia. For better or worse, it took me back to my high school days. Wow I'd almost forgot "The Real World" was a thing. And that damn "Sixpence None the Richer" song that was all over the radio- it just gets stuck in your head.
And mind blown- Paul Walker and Foggy from "Daredevil" pop up in it!
10 things i hate about you did it better
laney and zack are THEEEE MOST boring characters ever
the best 90s teen romcom there is
Not really ALL that. Just kinda okay to have on in the background while eating chips out of a bag.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
