This charming update of Pygmalion (by way of the John Hughes oeuvre, most notably Pretty in Pink) rode the crest of the late-1990s wave of immensely popular teen films (Varsity Blues, etc.), thanks primarily to the immense charisma of its two leads, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook. When school star Zach (Prinze)--who's a jock, smart, and popular--gets dumped by vacuous Taylor (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) after spring break, he's left dateless for the all-important prom. With a little goading from his less-than-sensitive best friend (hunky Paul Walker), he bets that he can make any girl into prom queen a mere eight weeks before the dance. The object of their wager: misfit Laney (Cook), a gawky art student too busy with her paintings and taking care of her brother and dad to worry about school politics. However, after a couple of looks from Zach, and a few dates that reveal him to be a hunk of substance, Laney's armour begins to melt--and her stock at school soars. Soon enough, she's the lone candidate for prom queen against the bitchy and relentless Taylor.

What elevates She's All That above the realm of standard teen fare is its mixture of good-natured fairy-tale romance and surprisingly clear-eyed view of high school social strata. The lines of class are demarcated as clearly as if in a Jane Austen novel, but the satire is equally deflating and affectionate. Sure, high school can be bad sometimes, but it can be lots of fun too; this is a movie good-natured enough to take time out for an extended hip-hop dance number at the prom. Director Robert Iscove (who also headed the Brandy-starring TV adaptation of Cinderella) has also assembled a great young cast, including a scene-stealing Anna Paquin as Zach's no-nonsense sister, Kieran Culkin as Laney's geeky brother, and a stupidly goofy Matthew Lillard as a Real World cast member whose arrival shakes things up a little too much. And amidst all the comedy and prom drama, you'd be hard-pressed to find two teen stars as talented, attractive, and appealing as Prinze and Cook. Prinze is an approachable and sensitive jock, though it's Cook who's the true star, investing Laney with confidence, humour, and heart. Like Zach, you'll be hard-pressed not to fall in love with her. By the story's end, both Cook and the film will have charmed the socks off of you. --Mark Englehart,

On the DVD: While the cast and director interviews are enjoyable and quick-paced, they offer few behind-the-scenes revelations. The "Shooting the Movie" sequence can hardly be called a documentary as it's just a backstage amateur camera filming the crew in action (it doesn't even have a presenter), but at least it offers an idea of the day-to-day routine of filming. As for the yearbook photo library and the trailer, they are very middle-of-the-road fare. The only redeemable point in this package is the picture quality in an excellent 16:9 anamorphic format and the 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack, although it is only offered in English with no subtitles. --Celine Martig

Product Description

A Freddie Prinze Jr double bill. In 'She's All That' Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr) has everything a young man could want. He's High School prom king, captain of the soccer team and the most popular guy in town. When his girlfriend Taylor (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) dumps him so she can go out with a TV star, Zack is just a little annoyed. However, arrogant as ever, Zack makes a bet with his best friend Dean that he can take even the most-plain Jane and transform her into a gorgeous Prom Queen. Unfortunately, Dean chooses Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook), the angriest, weirdest, most miserable girl in school, who has no time for boys, especially not a jock like Zack... Whilst in 'Down to You' Prinze and Julia Stiles (the King and Queen of Teen) team up in this romantic comedy about student life. It's love at first sight for Al (Prinze) and Imogen (Stiles) when they meet at a bar in New York City and a relationship rapidly develops between them. But with all the temptations around them - parties, drugs, other partners - their future as a couple looks less than secure. Watch out for the supporting performance from Henry 'The Fonz' Winkler as Al's TV chef dad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute little teenage romantic comedy! 7 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Though not everything in this movie is believable, She's All That is a very cute and entertaining movie due to its tight script and winning performances, particularly from its two leads. The story is pretty familiar; the most popular jock in school (Freddie Prinze Jr) takes a bet that he can transform any girl in high school into the new prom queen. His friends choose the serious and arty Laney (Rachel Leigh Cook). Romance blossoms and she finds herself competing for prom queen against the jock's snooty ex-girlfriend. The cast in general was good, and the plot was carried out very well. There's a good deal of flashy visuals, successful attempts at humor and an amazing amount of help from the supporting cast. Anyone who likes teen flicks should definitely check this movie out.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's all that 21 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This is one of the best films I have seen yet. Rachael Leigh Cook is obviosly the best person to play Laney and Freddie Prince Junior perfectly fits the part of Zack. Funny and sweet this was the perfect film to watch with my friend.
Zach is the boy everyone else wants to be. He has the best and most popular girl in school, he is the captain of the soccer team and class president. Everything in the world is brilliant for him until spring break. His popular girlfriend found another man and now Zach is ditched and everyone knows it. To keep his reputation up he takes on an impossibl bet. His friend gets to pick any girl in the school and Zach has just three weeks to turn her into the prom queen. As Zach starts to stalk Laney and transforms her he gets more than he bargained for. He ends up falling for Laney but secrets are never kept for long and Laney finds out about the bet. Will she ever believe that Zach has truly fallen in love with her?

5.0 out of 5 stars You will love it... buy it now 9 Jan 2005
at first i thought this was going to be your typical teen movie, that had bad acting and stupid storyline, but its not. ditched by his girlfriend for a reality tv star zack bets his best mate that he can turn any girl into prom queen in 6weeks. the girl picked is laney boggs, she is rude, doesnt talk to anyone and hides away from the world. however when she is turned into a beautiful young lady, zack develops true feelings for her. but what will happen when she finds out the truth? unlike some teen comedies this is fun, sassy and very well written and acted. you will love this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just another teen movie 2 Aug 2004
By A Customer
The first movie on this DVD, "She's All That" is about a complicated girl and a bet in which Freddie Prince jr. has to turn this social misfit into the belle of the ball- and ofcourse,the unthinkable happens and the pair fall in love. Although funny and romantic at times it is not the better of the two films and can be a bit predictable.
Secondly,"Down To You",is another teen love story. More twisted and complicated than the first,the two college students (played by Freddie Prince jr and the ever beautiful Julia Stiles) fight the battles of first love and long term relationships. More mature than "She's All That",this film offers a range of emotions and is something you will want to experience time and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, shame about the features 14 Jan 2004
This is a truly great film, funny, romantic and truly beautiful. The only thing that lets it down are the extra dvd features. Theese are sparse (no deleted scenes, voice overs etc) and the ones that are available are not that well done (the interviews are higledepigledi). However the film itself does outway theese drawbacks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely all that 18 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
O.K., this film isn't exactly rocket science but taken for what it's worth i.e. fun romantic comedy and not Oscar-winner, it's a brilliant slice of enjoyable entertainment. Freddie Prinze Jnr is much better than expected as Zach, and turns a part that could easily have come across as being an arrogant jock into the cool popular guy he's meant to be. Anna Paquin is utterly scene-stealing as Zach's younger sister, Matthew Lillard is hysterically funny as a self-obsessed 'celebrity' and Sarah Michelle Gellar appears in an amusing cameo. Nummerous R n B stars also pop up so it's only fitting that the soundtrack is fantastic - including the movie's best scene, an exhilerating foot-stomping dance segment to 'Funk Soul Brother' - I never knew proms could be that much fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars She's All That 9 Oct 2002
Format:VHS Tape
When high school prom king and all around coolest guy in the neighbourhood Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr) is told by his girlfriend Taylor (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) that she's leaving him for Brock Hudson (Matthew Lillard), star of MTV's The Real World, he's naturally more than a little put out. After all it doesn't do for the class president and captain of the school soccer team to be seen with anything less than the prettiest girl in the school, especially with prom night coming up.
Being the sort of guy that he is, Zack bets his friend Dean (Paul Walker) that he can take any girl an turn her into a potential prom queen. All it takes is the right hair and a bit of make up. Naturally Dean gets to pick the girl. Unhappily for Zack, Dean picks social misfit, angry at everybody, bespectacled, paint splattered Laney Boggs (Rachael Leigh Cook). Laney doesn't have time for trivialities, gossip or guys... least of all Zack.
This is a fun, but predictable movie, and I'd reccommend it to anyone looking for a girls night in! Freddie Prinze Jr and Paul Walker are HOT!, and for the males theres also Jodi Lyn O'Keefe dancing in a bikini, and Rachel Leigh Cook in that little red dress!
