  1. Most of the laughs are due to Bynes, a vibrant young actress with excellent comedic chops.
  2. 75
    It will certainly appeal to its target audience, and Bynes is charming enough to carry the whole film on her shoulders, which is a good thing considering that she's in just about every scene and leading man Tatum is a stiff.
  3. So good-natured, and its cast seems to enjoy itself so thoroughly, that the total annihilation of disbelief it requires winds up feeling like a reasonable enough request.
  4. 50
    Thanks to a winning cast, all of this is funnier than you would expect considering the erratic script.
  5. 50
    Neither smart enough nor funny enough to have cross-over appeal to any other demographic.
  6. Reviewed by: Anna Smith

    The highschool hijinks may entertain the young, but those more familiar with the Bard will recognise this as a wasted opportunity.
  7. 25
    There I sit, suffering total numbness of body and brain, no longer having to wonder what it might be like to be buried alive in gooey marshmallow.

    She's the Man gathers up enough energy and likeable goodwill that it almost skirts past some extremely strained passages in which Bynes She's the Man gathers up enough energy and likeable goodwill that it almost skirts past some extremely strained passages in which Bynes plays out being a boy as insistent as its heroine to get its point across it fails to exploit the myriad comedic possibilities, settling instead for broad, unconvincing slapstick aimed at 12-year-olds and gags Shakespeare would have rejected as ancient.

    A high-concept movie like this should be more high-concept. Aside from the premise (Which isn't believable for a second) nothing really A high-concept movie like this should be more high-concept. Aside from the premise (Which isn't believable for a second) nothing really seems to happen except a love triangle. It just never really takes off and it doesn't help that all the funny jokes (which, to be fair, are somewhat plentiful) are given away completely on the trailers and commercials. Not recommended. Just not that great of a movie. Expand

    I was unfortunate enough to walk in on the second half of this movie (during one of the many corny training montages) and then was guilted I was unfortunate enough to walk in on the second half of this movie (during one of the many corny training montages) and then was guilted into staying and watching the rest by my 7 and 9 year old sisters. It didn't take long to catch up on the plot, which plods along with loads of forced sophomoric attempts at comedy. The ending was so cheesy I almost couldn't bear to watch it. Not kidding. It's great for 7th graders who like Lisa Frank. Everyone else steer clear. Expand
