“He’s All That” & “She’s All That”: A Movie Review

He’s All That
When He’s All That came out on Netflix in August 2021, we finally got to see a reboot of the movie She’s All That, which came out 23 years ago, but this time it’s starring Addison Rae, Tanner Buchanan, Madison Pettis, Myra Molloy and Rachel Leigh Cook (who also starred in the original.) This movie is about a girl named Padgett (played by Addison Rae) who loses all of her brand deals after her breakup goes viral online. She ends up making a bet with her friend to see if she can turn one of the kids at her school into Prom King. However, if she loses the bet she has to get a tattoo that says “Loser.” Overall, this movie is cute and gives a very modern take on She’s All That.
The original movie, She’s All That, came out 22 years ago in 1999. It starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachel Leigh Cook, Paul Walker, Anna Paquin and Matthew Lillard. This movie was about a boy named Zack (played by Freddie Prinze Jr.) who starts to lose his popularity at school after going through a breakup with his girlfriend. He then makes a bet with one of his friends that he can turn one of the girls at his school into Prom Queen. If he loses the bet, he has to walk across the stage at graduation naked. Overall, this movie is a classic and I highly recommend watching it.
Both movies run for about the same time (1 hour and 30 minutes) and have the same plot. In both movies the main character, Padgett, has to give a makeover to a student at their school in order to win a bet. However, there are some differences in the movie as well. For example, in She’s All That, the main character Zack comes from a wealthy family. While in the remake He’s all That, Padgett comes from a lower income household and was raised by a single parent. In the movie She’s All That Zack agrees to the bet in order to gain back his popularity at school, but in the movie He’s all That Padgett agrees to the bet in order to regain her social media following and brand deals.
The main lesson in both of these movies is to never judge a book by its cover. Both of these movies show how different relationships and friendships can happen when you give someone a chance.
