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.
This one has a lot of sentimental value attached to it. But a rewatch confirms: It's pretty bad.
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
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.
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.
A great teen film at the time, it hasn't aged well now.
I may have enjoyed this, I don't remember. They're all the same to me.
One of those movies that's all the more fun for being a 90s time capsule (Freddie Prinze Jr, Dule Hill, Usher before he was single name Usher, Afghan Whigs & Fatboy Slim on the soundtrack, Matthew Lillard playing a REAL WORLD star).
It suggests for a second it could be a blend of PRETTY IN PINK and MY FAIR LADY, but shies away from PiP's class struggle aspect, preferring a "cool" vs. "uncool" struggle. On the other hand, PiP fails to follow through on the implications of its rich vs. poor dichotomy, so at least SHE'S ALL THAT doesn't aim for pretension.
Glib but fun, Cook does a good job of balancing the mousiness before with the cool part underneath, and…
Taylor Vaughan: Jump up my ass Zach.
Zach Siler: Been there, done that.
