Movie: She’s the Man
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8 high
Genre: Chick flick
Primary actors: Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum, Laura Ramsey
Length: Two hours
Based on: Very loosely on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night – if you read that, then watch this, there are some similarities in names and such.
Time period: Present
Year it came out: 2006
My overall opinion: So interesting and brilliant! There are a few times when inappropriate things are mentioned, but for the most part, I really enjoyed this fascinating and unique movie. Like I said, it’s loosely based on Twelfth Night. I watched 2/3 of this, read Twelfth Night for my English Lit class, then finally had time to finish this – and was happily surprised by the clear parallels. For a chick flick? Not bad at all. Good comedy, good story.
