She Gets What She Wants is a 2002 Winchester Films teen comedy film by director Melanie Mayron, starring Piper Perabo. In the film, Starla Grady (Jane McGregor) is the beautiful, preppy, popular girl at school who always gets whatever she wants, whenever she wants it, whether that is being head cheerleading, winning the title of pageant queen, or getting the cutest guy. But when Starla hosts a French foreign exchange student, Genevieve LePlouff (Piper Perabo), things take a quick turn for the worse. Suddenly it seems as though Starla’s boyfriend, friends, and even parents like Genevieve better! When Starla does poorly on a French exam and is forced to quit the cheerleading team, Genevieve takes over as head cheerleader. Now Starla has to see what it is like to be the unpopular outcast. She learns that things are not always as they seem in the riotous teen comedy, She Gets What She Wants.
