Fails to make the most of its source material by trimming Shakespeare's plot and squeezing it into a vacuous high school comedy.
Christopher Campbell

She's the Man arrives with much ado about something: a seasoned concept and qualified birthright that supports its traditionalism and rests upon its potential.

Anything resembling real wit or charm is strictly A.W.O.L.

A comedy that lacks both the verbal sophistication of its source and the sexual sophistication of its target audience.

...there are certainly more than enough elements within the film to warrant a mild recommendation among older viewers...

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

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

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

She's the Man is cleverer than the average teen movie, but it gets so wrapped up in plot mechanics that it loses the characters

I can't wait to see Lindsay Lohan do a version of Hamlet.

Bynes tackles her part with gusto, while Tatum underplays his to striking effect.

The high school hijinks may entertain the young, but those more familiar with the Bard will recognise this as a wasted opportunity.

A minor but decent-spirited entertainment, enlivened by a couple of the adult supporting players.
Matthew Turner

Amanda Bynes is an extremely likeable actress and she does a pretty good job of passing as a boy, though she's a little over-reliant on comedy mugging at times.

Implausible as she is, her voice-changing, artificial guy-speak, and penchant for causing fights makes the whole film fun and watchable.

Its kooky hybrid of slapstick gender jokes already had whiskers on 'em in Shakespeare's day.

Bynes's character is never convincing enough to fool a newborn.

Up until the last 10 minutes or so, I hated everything about this movie.

One of the charms of this romantic teen comedy is its speed: even its sex change is a remarkably carefree, no-fuss event.
