This is a great movie that is really funny.

I wanted to see this movie because I really liked Amanda Bynes in "What a Girl Wants" and I thought she would be good in this role.

Soccer-playing Viola (Bynes) is really upset when the girls' soccer team is cut. The boys' team does not want any girls on it, so Viola decides to impersonate her brother Sebastian (Kirk), who conveniently is starting a new school where he is unknown. He is also skipping out of the first weeks of school in order to pursue a musical career in Europe. Being Sebastian, she can play soccer, and maybe even get some revenge on her own school's team.

Everything is going well for Viola until she falls in love with her roommate (Tatum). Of course, he is interested in Olivia (Ramsey), and Olivia has got her eye on Viola. The only thing that could make things more complicated for Viola is if her brother were to come home early. And he does.

"She's the Man" is loosly based on William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night", and works pretty well. The majority of this film's success is due to Amanda Bynes as Viola. While never really looking like a guy, she has the enthusiasm and screen presence to make this an enjoyable film. Although aimed primarily at the teen audience, others will find enjoyment in it too.

For a teenage chickflick, I really loved this movie! Amanda Bynes is a great actress. She's down to earth, funny and has a great personality. The characters that she portrays in movies are very similar to the characters she plays in TV Shows. Nonetheless, she's amazing at the roles that she plays.

I've grown up watching Amanda on Nickeloden, then WB, and now movies. I like that she's down to earth and not at all stuck up or prissy!

Overall, this is a great comedy especially for a teenage date.

For some reason, Shakespeare translates very well to modern high school. I think it's the social cliques and emotions running high. I think this is one of the funnier adaptations, along the lines of "10 Things I Hate About You," but with the story line for "Twelfth Night" instead of "Taming of the Shrew."

The actors didn't hold back on the comedy, the adaptation is well written, and the story is a classic. I actually think the disguises make more sense than in the original play; where in the original, people actually got the twins mixed up, in this adaptation, no one who knew either of them really well got a good look at Viola when she was being Sebastian.

There were lots of nice references back to the original, as well: Duke's speech at the end, the spider "Malvolio," Cesario's pizza place.

If you like Shakespeare or teenage romantic comedies OR sports movies, I would recommend this one!

Viola (Amanda Bynes) is a star in the girl's soccer team at school. Due to lack of girls who would like to join the team, the girls soccer team is ended. Viola's twin brother (Sebastion) goes to London for two weeks so Viola poses as him to get on the guys soccer team. The movie has a nice love triangle - or more than a triangle. It is fun to see how Viola copes with living in a guys dorm. The story is nice, and funny. The acting is good. Overall it is a nice, simple movie to watch.

In recent years, the teen comedy has been reduced to raunchy plotlines that barely have enough plot to withhold their 90 minute running time. But, there have been a few exceptions within the mix, including this Shakespeare inspired flick.

In 'She's the Man' (Loosely based on Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night'), Amanda Bynes plays tomboy/soccer addict Viola who's world is crushed when her school's girls soccer team is cut - when it's suggested that the girls team join forces with the boys, the option is nixed on the spot. But Viola, not one to take this sitting down, finds a chance to prove herself worthy of playing soccer with the guys. While her twin brother Sebastian jets off to London to promote his band, Viola will disguise herself as him and attend his new high school (since his attendance record booted him from his last one) to play soccer with the boys. Once Viola..ehm..Sebastian enters the school, mayhem ensues, especially a messy love triangle too confusing to write down.

The comedic acting by Bynes is always worthwhile watching, that goes beyond other teen actresses of the time. The acting by the movie's mostly unknown teen cast is both enjoyable and believable. Channing Tatum (Bynes love interest), who resembles Chad Michael Murray in both acting and appearance, is good at playing the looked upon playboy who's actually sensitive and shy.

Unlike other teen flicks, 'She's the Man' doesn't resort to the stereotypical teen partying and sexual plotlines that are most commonly present in them today. It's a smart and unpredictable comedy that'll keep you watching until the end credits roll.

She's the Man starring the very funny Amanda Bynes is enjoyable from start to finish. Hunky Channing Tatum also stars as Duke, the boy Viola has a major crush on. Viola's high school soccer team is canceled from the program and decides to impersonate her twin brother, Sebastian at his boarding school so she can play soccer there while her bro is in London for two weeks. Bynes's physical comedy is invetible, her acting is refreshing and she has always reminded me of a young Lucille Ball. Bynes is never afraid to be sexy, goofy, and awkward all at the same time. This film is based on a loose adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelth Night. She's the Man had me laughing practically the whole way through. I highly recommend this teen romantic comedy. Enjoy!
