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 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

Just saw this at a preview last night. Amanda Byrnes is very cute and carries the picture although you don't for a minute believe she is a boy. But it is a very likeable film aimed at young teenage girls and the young girls seating Just saw this at a preview last night. Amanda Byrnes is very cute and carries the picture although you don't for a minute believe she is a boy. But it is a very likeable film aimed at young teenage girls and the young girls seating behind me at the show thought "it was the best film I've seen this year". Expand

Love it if I were still a 12 year-old girl - little too cheesy for a 22-year old though.

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 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.

Amanda Bynes proves to be a star again... the movie was hilarious. I laughed right from the first scene to the last. No other teen movie so far has been so funny and so lovable. The movie is based on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It's aboutAmanda Bynes proves to be a star again... the movie was hilarious. I laughed right from the first scene to the last. No other teen movie so far has been so funny and so lovable. The movie is based on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It's about Viola (Amanda) whose soccer dreams are shattered when her school cuts the girl's team. Since the coach refuses to try the boy's team she takes revenge of them by disguising herself as Sebastian (her twin brother) and goes to his school(Illyria) while her brother goes to London for his Music. Amanda mets Duke (Channing Tatum) in the new school and he is in love with Olivia (Laura) who falls in love with Sebastian (Amanda) who loves Duke......The story revolves around Amanda's ambition to beat her old school soccer team. Her day to day experiences at new school are beautifully portrayed. Nobody could have done the character Sebastian so funny as she did. The movie is perfect for everyone... All the characters in the movie were well picked... Hats off to the director. The choice of Vinnie Jones as coach is Perfect.T hough soccer plays an important part,the movie deals with all emotions like strong friendship, true love, family, hatred, jealousy etc.. This movie is a must see for all Amanda fans. Expand

'She's the Man' has an interesting premise that could have been executed effortlessly...but the question is; how do you execute this premise so well? Someday there may be another movie out there that will do that, but for now, this might have'She's the Man' has an interesting premise that could have been executed effortlessly...but the question is; how do you execute this premise so well? Someday there may be another movie out there that will do that, but for now, this might have to suffice. Unless you count the Robin Williams classic 'Mrs Doubtfire' (1993).

Amanda Bynes plays Viola, a young high school girl who loves to play soccer, and discovers that her brother Sebastian (James Kirk) is secretly heading to London for a while. She then decides to go undercover as her brother as a scheme to get into the soccer team...hopefully without anybody noticing.

Things start to get even more complicated as there is a strange romance blooming for Viola, she becomes infatuated with her roommate Duke (Channing Tatum), but she needs to play it cool.

This movie did make me laugh from time to time, as the comedic timing from Bynes mostly, proves to be very rewarding for the movie's benefit. My main issue with the movie comes from the fact that it is full of some unrealistically obnoxious side characters that are not funny nor making the movie any more intriguing. 6/10, middling comedic entertainment.
