She's the Man Reviews

Hollywood should give pre-teens more credit; they read Shakespeare, and even comprehend the intricacies of the stories.

It's stupid, dull and toothless, and a classic example of why the next generation is increasingly staying away from the movie theaters. Is this all Hollywood thinks of them?

As was proven with 10 Things I Hate about You, it is possible to re-imagine the Bard in a modern high school setting, but She's the Man doesn't do it well.

Bynes, as likable and energetic as she is, is about as masculine as Tinker Bell and just can't pull off the male transfer. It's impossible to believe classmates might believe she's a guy, but maybe they could mistake her for Velma from "Scooby-Doo."

She's the Man fails to exploit the myriad comedic possibilities, settling instead for broad, unconvincing slapstick aimed at 12-year-olds and gags Shakespeare would have rejected as ancient.

Mere words cannot convey how awful Bynes is at playing a girl playing a boy.

Loses the most important part of Shakespeare: his insight into human behavior.

Slant Magazine

At least Andy Fickman's proto-feminist romp has the wherewithal to score some of its female empowerment action to a bubblegum pop/rock rendition of The Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song.

The protagonist's stupidity is a powerful, brutish force, a fog that hangs over the entire film like a stench.

The movie is noisy, obnoxious and wildly overacted, as if Fickman planned it to play only on a Sony PSP.

Is being a Paul Walker protégé really all that desirable?

As in Bynes' 2003 film What a Girl Wants, She's the Man wraps her up in a tidy romantic-comedy package with a generically non-threatening piece of Teen Beat eye candy.

The utter absence of humor, charm, originality, or intelligence leaves this to rank among the worst of all recent teen comedies.

watching it helps you realize that you're not 12 anymore, and you can't be watching movies like this. Unless, of course, you're still 12, so you'll probably be cheering for Amanda Bynes

Energetic but lacking the wit of 10 Things I Hate About You,it requires a suspension of disbelief that only comes from taking too many soccer balls to the head.

we get treated to more mistaken identities than a bad episode of Three's Company (a Cindy Snow/Jenilee Harrison-era episode, not the classic comedy of Suzanne Somers).

Bynes is just never believable as a guy, really, but she's got so much confidence she very nearly bluffs her way through.

Cutsey and wholesome, filled with silly, superficial slapstick, it turns out to be far more cheesy than it should.

Once again, Hollywood makes the mistaken assumption that cribbing Shakespearean plots and dumping the poetry will somehow download the Bard's brilliance.
