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…
Probably one of the top movies that defy explanation as to why I keep watching it when there are better and worthier things out there. Every time I put this on (usually in the midst of a Netflix-mindless movie binge) it makes me feel stupid and lazy. But I can't stop.
the lead was prettier in the beginning. also so many baby stars.
I wouldn't have put this film on out of choice but was my girlfriends pick. Naturally she fell asleep 20 minutes in leaving me to watch it. Yet I didn't turn it off! Typical 90's romantic chick flick. With a fairly predictable story line not dissimilar to many other films of the same age and genre.
Having said that easy to watch with the obvious characters you supposed to love and hate. The ending is obvious from the get go we no surprises or indiscernible twists.
Pretty much my high school experience, with just a couple key differences.

THESE TWO OPPOSITES ATTRACT... BUT EVERYONE'S TRYING TO KEEP THEM APART!
Hello Kiddies your pal the cupid critic here and sometimes opposites do attract, but not in my world. You know how sometimes theirs a parody of a movie and its ripping off one movie to make unfunny humor. Well I saw Not another Teen movie and thanks to that I hate this movie.
Some people take prom way too seriously.
Cute, charming comedy about love, life and most importantly, prom, in high school. Highly enjoyable.
A good cheesy rom com from the 90's, good script and acting from the majority of the cast make it enjoyable, can't see myself watching it over and over but Paul Walker shines as a bigger star than Freddie Prinze in my eyes.
Well sometimes you have to let the girlfriend pick out the movie, and this wasn't the worst romcom I've ever seen.
