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.
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!
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.
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.
