News & Interviews for She's All That
Critic Reviews for She's All That
A high school drama that accurately reflects the intense pressures that 17-year-olds feel about their senior prom: from whom they are going with, to what direction their lives will take afterward.
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.
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.
