Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This fast-paced and irreverent teen screwball update of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night 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.
