She's All That feels like it could have been made by a team of septuagenarians from the glory days of American Intl. Pictures.

It's often impossible to distinguish what's meant to be cartoonish from what's meant to be dramatic, but the confusion seems appropriately adolescent.

Director Robert Iscove isn't really taxing his imagination, but that's probably just as well.

She's All That is essentially a formulaic comedy, but it has enough glimmerings of originality and wit to make you wish it were much bolder and funnier than it turns out to be.

A laughable film and one that doesn't need a spoof to show how idiotic it tends to be.

Uneven "ugly duckling" teen flick.

Iscove's film has its own brand of charm and is reasonable enough in its ambitions that it's awfully hard to resist.

She's All That is not likely to make a mark or be remembered by anyone for very long, but it's harmless enough and useful for finding the finer points of this genre.

The tempo of the film does well to cure the unlikely romance with just the right amount of anxiety and the leads -- especially Cook, who is wonderfully promising here -- create an earnestly heartfelt chemistry.

With She's All That, we see how true garbage may nevertheless teem with a life of its own.

The Nation

It's wretchedly predictable, inconsistently funny and not always well-written. It's enjoyable enough, but a truly good movie it's not.

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?

The dance stops eventually, and then those darn kids start talking again. Way to ruin the mood.

Contains just enough of a message about self-worth and honesty to lend some moral nutrition to the entertainment calories it provides so capably.

It is amazing that they can swipe a classic tale like [Pygmalion] and still add nothing but derivative tack-on flava to it.

Audience Reviews for She's All That

"She's All That" is probably one of the highest points in Freddy Prinze Jr.'s career, and even though this film is pretty run-of-the-mill and 100% predictable, you can definitely have some fun with it's 90's nostalgia feel. After a bet from his best friend (Paul Walker), Zack must turn the nerdiest girl in school into his prom queen. Whatever you think will happen in that type of premise, happens, and nothing really new is brought to the table, but the characters are likeable and the soundtrack is nice to hear. With some pretty one-note scriptwriting and some average cinematography, "She's All That" falls into the category of very forgettable films. Although the cast is good and the cliches are enjoyable for once, it is not strong enough to warrant a recommendation. Sadly, this is just another 90's high school romance that will flutter away with all the others.

Rachael Leigh Cook is hot, mm'kay? In trying to uglify herself though, she contracts an unfortunate case of Vapid Face Syndrome.

To slake a hankering for classic 90s teen movie, I gave "She's All That" a re-gander and found that it hasn't held up like "10 Things I Hate About You" or "Clueless" or even the first two "American Pies." This "Pygmalion"-lite is deserving of its "Not Another Teen Movie" treatment with its easily recognizable stereotypes and suspension of disbelief. Ducky-esque Jesse is blustery and useless, and even the group dance to Fatboy Slim's "The Rockafeller Skank" (of which I never knew the title) seems lame and dated.

An old favourite I recently rewatched. Yes, it's far fetched, particularly the casting of Rachael Leigh Cook as an ugly girl, but is just such a nice film, I don't really care.
Great cast - whatever happened to Clea Duvall and Jodi Lynn O'Keefe? Never seem to see them anymore. Also small cameo by Sarah Michelle Gellar and fun to see a very young Anna Paquin. Freddie has a nice presence in this too.
Nice 90's teen movie, one of the better ones.

Super Reviewer

Undeniably cheesy and excessive, this teen comedy at least has a heart and some witty moments to go along with the stupid parts. The acting isn't all that great, but it doesn't really detract from the film because it is so over the top anyways. It has some funny scenes and is at least fun to watch. It has kind of endured as a 90's teen classic somehow and has been parodied a few times, which is funny considering how over the top this already is.
