Movie Summary

Robert Iscove

Heartthrob Zack Siler, who's recent and very public dumping from school hottie royalty Taylor Vaughn has gotten his casanova reputation under scrutiny. Thus he devises a cruel bet with pal Dean Sampson to pick any girl on campus and Zack will turn her into prom queen by simply dating her. Dean picks the socially stand-offish and artsy Laney Boggs, who's glasses, pony tail, and paint splattered overalls prove to be quite the challenge to work with. After tricking Laney to go out with him, despite her initial resistance, Zack finds that the unlikely pair have more in common that he had originally thought and falls for her. As predicted, Laney is accepted into the in-crowd for the first time in her life, until reining queen bee Taylor Vaughn interjects. Zack must come clean to Laney and prove himself worthy to get her trust back, reputation be damned.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    She's All That is essentially a formulaic comedy, but it has enough glimmerings of originality and wit to make you wish it were much bolder and funnier than it turns out to be.
