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, 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.

User Reviews

Rachael Leigh Cook
27 August 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

She represents the lead motif for see the film. More than the too familiar plot, performances of young actors, cliches or the try to give a romantic comedy. She acts in the most beautiful manner. And that gives to a simple and mediocre teenagers comedy breath and some force. An identity. And push the story to the right way. A great young actress changing everything. That is all.
