Storyline

She's All That is your typical high school prom king and queen story and the run in defending the star status in the upcoming election. High school hottie, Zach Siler is dumped by his prom-queen girlfriend, the equally hot and extremely popular, Taylor Vaughan who fell for a second-hand world reject TV soap star who she met over the spring break. Having publicly dumped, Zach defends his discomposure by stating that Taylor is all make-up and wonder-bra and he can make any ordinary girl a prom queen with similar package. His high-school buddy, Dean Sampson, engages him in a bet following the statement and picks the geeky looking Laney Boggs out of the crowd as the girl Zach must transform into the new prom queen. Zach agrees since he has no options but as time passes and Laney begins to transform, Zach finds her to be unusually attractive. While all that falls beautifully in place, it's not your typical fairy-tale either. Throw in Dean Sampson to complicate the situation and he does ... Written by Sofea Shah

One of the best movies in its genre
22 August 2008 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie for the sixth or seventh time on television and I wondered what Rachael Leigh Cook was doing these days. So I checked the IMDb and to my amazement I saw that this movie is rated with a miserable 5.4! What the hell? In my opinion She's all that is one of the best movies in it's teenager/highschool/romcom genre. The story is comfortable predictable and all the performances (from Freddy Prinze to Rachel Leigh Cook and even Matthew Lillard - who's pretty hilarious) are great. We also find Paul Walker (pretty scary!) and Anna Paquin in one of their earlier roles.

Director Robert Iscove also has some nice visual surprises in store for us. The way he introduces the Florida flashback at the pool may be lent from Tucker: A man and his dream, but it works very well. One of the best parts is the dance scene to the music of Fat Boy Slim at the end of the movie. The choreography is excellent and the camera-work first rate. I think that scene is an absolute classic (especially since it wasn't even planned to be in the movie).

All in all She's all that is pretty underrated, I think. It's difficult to make a good romantic movie, I know. I love the genre, but the only ones that really survive the test of time can be counted on one hand. Rob Reiner's The Sure Thing and When Harry Met Sally are up there. Garry Marshall's Frankie and Johnny, Ang Lee's Sense & Sensibility, The Notebook and Simon West's Pride & Prejudice also come to mind.

She's all that may not be a classic like the movies I mentioned before, but there's more to that movie than you would think after first seeing it.

A miserable 5.4... Come on, guys! 8,5 out of 10
