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

Trivia

Rachael Leigh Cook's character's name, Laney Boggs, is a combination of the names of two characters played by Winona Ryder: Kim Boggs in Edward Scissorhands (1990) and Lelaina "Laney" Pierce in Reality Bites (1994). This is an apparent nod to Cook's and Ryder's physical resemblance. See more »

CONFORM, CITIZEN! CONFOOOOOOOOORM!!!!
1 December 1999 | by (England) – See all my reviews

High school Jock Number One gets dumped by his prom queen to be! Doh! So the fool bets that he can make a replacement out of the geekiest girl in school.

And this is one helluva geek. For a start, she DOESN'T LIKE DUMB MACHO JOCKS. No, really! And listen, you're gonna love this - SHE WEARS GLASSES!!! I know! And the first time we see her, she TRIPS OVER ON THE STAIRS!!! What a total geek-of-the-week man-eatin' psycho Commie MUTANT, huh? Let's all point at her and LAFF!

Luckily, he redeems her by making her wear contact lenses and pretty dresses. Soon, she'll be just like everyone else. Hallelujah!

God, I hate my generation.
