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.

The character "Brock Hudson" was actually named after a real-life student of the same name at St. John's School in Houston, Texas, the same school where Rushmore (1998) was filmed. Screenwriter R. Lee Fleming Jr. went to this school, along with Wes Anderson (director of "Rushmore") and Will Wallace, where the phrase "what kind of name is Brock Hudson?" (used twice in this movie) was commonly heard. See more »

You've almost certainly already got this tee-shirt
So predictable, so derivative. This film came recommended but I feel that the recommendation was misplaced. Taming of the Shrew has been remade many times but in some cases (Pygmalion, My Fair Lady) new eras and genres add something. In this case, we have "taming meets teen-movie" - nothing is added, only taken away.
Cook is very watchable, but she's no shrew which somewhat side-steps the point. And as for having a chip on your shoulder about the jet-setters when you're a teenager living in a house with a huge basement that you can monopolise as your art studio and a swimming pool in the garden. Please. At least in Pretty in Pink the poverty was more relative and somewhat absolute (although even then, if you can afford a car and have a job........).
Unless you have never seen a teen movie and/or never seen a remake of Taming, you've already got this tee-shirt many times over so this movie is not worth the 90 minute wait for the closing credits. My partner, Janie, was asleep within four minutes and barely stirred until the end, which is a record even for her.
