When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks in London, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguises herself as him, and proceeds to fall for one of her soccer teammates. Little does she realize she's not the only one with romantic troubles, as she, as he, gets in the middle of a series of intermingled love affairs.
About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
Kate (Brittany Snow) is the new girl in school. She catches John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe) dating three different girls at once: Carrie - the smart girl, Heather - the cheerleader, and Beth - the activist slut; none of them are aware that they are not the only girl in John's heart. Kate, having been raised by a single mother, has seen the pain caused by playboys like John Tucker, and she won't stand idly by. Together with the three jilted ex-girlfriends, they hatch a plan to teach John a lesson. Things rarely go as planned, especially when Kate starts to think that she might be falling for John herself.

In the scene where John and Kate are on the boat, she is sitting down to his left. However, when the other three girls are watching it on the screen they can see John from his right. See more »

A little bit into the credits and there's a scene in Tokyo, Japan. There are three girls out by a fountain looking at their cell phones. Of course, the picture on the cell phone screen in John Tucker in thong. See more »

I feel like this is just the perfect example of how to do a teenage film, you've got to know what to put in it, what appeals to that age demographic. First of all, I love how both guys and girls can watch this film, I think it definitely appeals to both sexes. For the ladies, we have Jesse Metcalfe, even in a pink thong in one scene ;). We also have lots of dialogue that will appeal to the women. For the men/boys, well lots of men love Brittany Snow, so there's that. Also, this film does teach a good message besides the whole revenge plot. Eventually, it explains that you don't need to cheat or fool with people's emotions. Yes, this movie has funny scenes, and good looking actors for both men and women to enjoy, but it does have a happy ending. I felt very entertained and satisfied by this teen flick. I feel like it's relatable, funny, attractive, and in the end has a good heart and message. I would for sure suggest teens and even adults watch this film. I also feel like the actors did a good job, no bad actors here. Also, the dialogue and source material was very well put together, so it wasn't hard for the actors to do well. 8/10 overall. Very happy movie. If you're sad or just looking to have some fun, Check it out!
