If I could rate this movie lower I would, but this is the worst I can go acknowledging that at least someone sat on a chair and screamed “action” when production started.

I was fourteen when She's all That (1999) was released and I have seen it so many times I cannot count. The movie is a 90s classic for people like us, a leaving homage to high school rom-com when it was at its heights. This movie however is a cringy embarrassment to She's all That. This remake where there is a switch in the gender, is like a ninety minute long TikTok video that goes on and on and on.

I do not know who Addison Rae is, but thanks to this movie I will forever avoid her movies. She is the reason why people go to acting classes and why some people get paid as acting coaches. She is honorably bad at acting, even a Razzie Award for this will be too much for the massacre she did in this movie. This movie is best left ignored.

Following the main plot of the main movie, we have the lead girl in high school Padgett (Addison Rae) dating the leading man in high school. When he screws up their relationship, she accepted a challenge from her friends to turn the school's least popular boy, Cameron (Tanner Buchanan), into prom king. I recall She's all That did the turn around with some form of respect for the characters involved. In this remake the whole makeover appeared insulting. The whole be yourself social media stand, got drowned in this movie.

So in order to maintain her place as top girl and getting revenge on her boyfriend for messing up their relationship, Padgett accepts the challenge.

In the end all I enjoyed was seeing Rachel Leigh Cook again, but what the hell was she doing in this movie. She was miles and miles away in acting proficiency than the lead Rae, who played her daughter. They murdered everything from the classic, the “I was a bet” reveal almost made me puke.

Well I guess this is what passes for movies now, an onslaught of bad acting, terrible script and people just talking. If you can recall the magical soundtrack of She's all That well, they did not even keep that. They went ahead to get an artist (Cyn) unknown to me and she covered the popular song from the movie Kiss Me, by Sixpence None the Richer. I feel as bad as this movie was, they should have at least kept that, her version was almost similar, just step down from the magnificent track of the 90s.

There is no reason to watch this, but it is floating in Netflix.
