Posted May 20, 2003
2/4 38% She's All That (1999) " Considering that all of us (even, one surmises, the young viewers smack in the hairlines of this movie's demographic gunsights) can guess where this story is going, why is the last third of this film so unrelentingly slow?" — Palo Alto Weekly
Posted May 20, 2003
