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.
The scene where Matthew Lillard dances is more hypnotic than the cobra-like moves Uma Thurman brings in Pulp Fiction or the icy synchronization of leg kicks in Jean-Luc Godard's Bande a part.
This one has a lot of sentimental value attached to it. But a rewatch confirms: It's pretty bad.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
As you can probably tell I've been trying to watch all the "classic" teen flicks now that I'm a senior in high school. I wouldn't exactly call this one a classic but definitely a 90's teen favorite for most I guess. Freddie Prinze Jr. could charm the pants off a freaking genie seriously that guy is perfect. And Paul Walker was so precious in this (even though his character was a dick) RIP. It wasn't good on a critical standpoint but I was entertained all the way through. Some of the scenes were so dumb and awkward and cringe worthy (the art show, Preston's party, the basement one with the kiss, THE RAP). Some of the decisions the characters made…
Sappy romantic...I like it
Chick flick tropes are strong with this one.
Típica comedia romántica yanqui adolescente de los 90, con los típicos actores y tópicos de este tipo de películas.
Se deja ver y todo, pero por otras comedias románticas que he visto, imaginaba esta un poquito mejor.
Además había visto una en joda con Chris Evans, y como que algunas partes de esta eran tan absurdas y bizarras que me hacían acordar a esa, no sé.
Qué dosmilera se siente esta película. Qué viejo debe estar ahora Freddie Prinze Jr.
every high school romcom trope ever is in this movie
The plot felt familiar. The high school jock bets he can make any girl in school into the Prom Queen, so his mate selects a sulky loner as the girl to be transformed.
The humour is patchy and the tone ranges from almost serious to almost self parodying. The whole performance is undercut by the fact that the girl to be transformed becomes instantly beautiful and poised.
Completely full of clichés and stock teen movie characters with no depth.
90's teen movies are not aging well.
The poor man's John Hughes movie of its time.
I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
