Melissa Joan Hart,
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, Zack Siler is dumped by his prom-queen girlfriend, the equally attractive and extremely popular, Taylor Vaughan who fell for a second-hand world reject TV soap star who she met over the spring break. Having been publicly dumped, Zack 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 a similar package. His high-school buddy, Dean Sampson, engages him in a bet following this statement and picks the geeky looking Laney Boggs out of the crowd as the girl Zack must transform into the new prom queen. Zack agrees since he has no option, but as time passes and Laney begins to transform, Zack begins to find her attractive. While all that falls beautifully in place, it's not your typical fairy-tale.

Charming, occasionally silly romantic teen comedy.
Zack Siler (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is the most popular teen in his high school. He shocked that his girlfriend (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) broke up with him for an celebrity (Matthew Lillard). He decided to take any girl to the Prom, but his best friend (Paul Walker) wants to bet. His friend wants him to take the biggest geek to the prom, her name is Laney Boggs (Rachael Leigh Cook). Laney is an ambitious art student, Zack decides to take the bet and he starts talking to Laney. Difficult at first, Zack actually warms up to Laney and they find out, they have a lot in common. Slowly Zack starts to fall in love with her, while his best friend starts to be jealous and he will do anything to ruined the bet.
Directed by Robert Iscove (Boys and Girls) made an enjoyable if predictable teen romantic comedy. Prinze Jr. and especially Cook are terrific in the movie. Walker gets to play the biggest jerk in the movie and he is sometimes amusing. But it is Lillard steals the show in his supporting performance. It was an surprise Box Office hit back in the winter of 1999. This movie is remember for the two lead performances and an good song by the ill-faded band "Sixpence None The Richer" titled "Kiss Me".
The movie is double feature with "Down to You". Another Prinze Jr. movie. DVD has an fine anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) transfer and an good Dolby Stereo 2.0 Surround Sound. "She's All That" does have an familiar supporting cast like Kevin Pollak, Kieran Culkin, Elden Hanson, Usher Raymond, Clea DuVall, Tim Matheson and more. "She All's That" is certainly one of the better teen movies of the late 1990's. This movie is make fun well in "Not Another Teen Movie". Sarah Michelle Gellar appears uncredited. (*** ½/*****).
