She's All That (1999) review
It's probably disagreeable to most that I liked this as much as I did, but it brought back some fond memories of my childhood and is actually just pretty funny.
PLOT:Laney Boggs (Rachel Leigh Cook) is an unpopular girl at her school. She's very artistic and smart, and the preps despise her for it. Zack Siler (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is the most popular guy in school and thinks he can get any girl he wants. He makes this bet with his best friend, Brock Hudson (Matthew Lillard), after his girlfriend, Taylor Vaughan (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), breaks up with him. Now, Zack is striving to take Laney and make her the most popular girl in school, even though she's wise and persistent to his tricks. All the while, Taylor is becoming jealous and trying to put Laney back in her place. It's a decent plot executed very well.
ACTING:The acting in here is actually very good. Rachel Leigh Cook plays a pretty good part as the wise and artistic Laney Boggs, and Freddie Prinze Jr. plays a very good part as the popular Zack Siler. They play off each other very well and also have some pretty great chemistry. The other performances were just okay, including the likes of Matthew Lillard as Brock and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe as Taylor.
SCORE:The score was pretty okay. It was mainly made up of popular and original songs from the 90s, but it was still pretty good.
OTHER CONTENT:This movie is actually better than I expected it to be. It's very funny and entertaining, and it brings back some fond memories I remember from my childhood in the 90s. However, it's still pretty generic and shallow along with the okay supporing actors. I liked it, but it did have its flaws.
OVERALL,an okay comedy with a well-executed plot, very good acting, pretty okay score, lots of fun, and a lot of memories from the 90s, but it is still pretty generic and shallow with only okay supporting actors.
