Freddie Prinze Jr.,
In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
Ryan (Shane West) is a bit of a geek with eyes for the school sex bomb, Ashley (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), which induces cringing in his neighbor and best friend, Maggie (Marla Sokoloff), a cute intellectual girl. But popular jock Chris (James Franco) has his eye on Maggie, and he offers to help Ryan win Ashley if Ryan will help Chris with Maggie. So begins a two-headed variation on Cyrano de Bergerac; Ryan composes soulful e-mails for Chris, and Chris advises Ryan to treat Ashley like dirt, which seems to be the only way to get her attention. At first, neither finds it easy to change their ways; Chris comes on too strong, and Ryan is too nervous to be a jerk. But as they start to succeed, Ryan begins to see Maggie in a new light and wonders if he's pursuing the right girl. He realizes Ashley is not meant for him, and tries to convince Maggie about Chris's affection for her. Maggie is reluctant to take him "back" at first, but then realizes Ryan has a change of heart.Written by

A scene, which can be seen in the previews, was cut from the film: At the carnival, after Ryan is forced to wear a small children's shirt, he and Ashley decide to take pictures in a photo-booth where she asks, "Do you want to kiss me?". When he leans over to kiss her she turns around and he gets a mouth full of her hair. See more »
Like those fashion ads that feature eerie celebrity doppelgangers this teen comedy is populated by ersatz versions of stars who, in this case are fairly vanilla to begin with. James Franco could be a milder Tom Everett Scott; Jodi Lyn O'Keefe resembles a less edgy Neve Campbell (a frightening thought indeed.) Two squares get hooked up with members of the cool crowd, only to discover looks aren't everything. The sweet, bland romantics are supposed to be made for each other, but it's more likely they deserve each other.
