She’s All That (1999)
This is another movie where Al was incredulous I hadn’t seen it. It’s not my favorite movie in the world, but I enjoyed it.
An adaptation of Pygmalion and My Fair Lady, this was one of the most popular teen films of the late 1990s.
I love how Freddie Prinze, Jr., as Zack, slowly develops a relationship with Rachael Leigh Cook, as Laney. Despite the drama of multiple popularity contests, it all seems to work out.
Seeing the cast on screen made me think of several “unsavory” characters in high school. It’s not entirely realistic, as most movies are, but I think this one basically hit the nail on the head in terms of behavior, gossip, and drama.
I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it, but I love the graduation scene in particular. Well played, Robert Iscove, well played.
Come back tomorrow for a new movie!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
