This fast-paced and irreverent teen screwball update of Shakespeare's
provides a hilarious platform for the talents of Amanda Bynes (
What a Girl Wants
). When the girls' football team at her school is cancelled, soccer-mad Viola (Bynes) takes the place of her twin brother Sebastian at his new prep school in order to join the boys' team. But a hasty male makeover can't disguise the fact that she soon finds herself attracted to her new room-mate, Duke (Channing Tatum). To complicate matters further, the girl that Duke has a crush on becomes interested in "Sebastian". It may not be caustically witty, intellectual or worthy, but
She's the Man
is a decent enough romp that has plenty of fun with the genders. Most of all, Bynes is a gem to watch in a teen comedy that is actually good, clean entertainment.
Soccer-mad Viola's football team is disbanded, and the only other side in the area is all-male - so she resorts to disguising herself as her twin brother to win a place on the squad. However, she falls for a team-mate who only has eyes for another girl - who in turn takes a liking to Viola in her male guise. Teenage romantic comedy, loosely based on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, starring Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum, Laura Ramsey and Vinnie Jones.
