Previously her big screen debut (where she was the star) was the rather hilarious and well made "What A Girl Wants." If that wasn't her break out vehicle than She's The Man takes care of that hands down. It's a shame she doesn't do more big screen work because she could be the next "It" girl.She is the All American, cute, down to earth, bubbly teen (although she's twenty now) and whether or not she'll be able to carry her talent and style over to being an adult actor will remain to be seen. She actually legitimately pulls off the rather outlandish plot of her impersonating her twin brother and makes it believable. Most of the script relies on the comedy of her errors trying to be a guy but it's just hilarious, non stop laughs.

In the same vein as 10 Things I Hate About You (one of my all time faves) She's The Man is a unique, well written, very well performed comedy with some of the funniest lines, and physical comedy I have seen in a long time.
It's probably the funniest movie I've seen this year (with the exception of the hilarious Pink Panther.) But She's The Man is actually a more intellectual funny and most of the humor relies on the witty script, "Three's Company" style story of mistaken identities, and mixed messages, and the cast. Even since the days of the horribly campy (yet strangely entertaining "The Amanda Show", she has shown a brilliant talent for comedy.
Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. She wants to join the boys' team, but they do not allow girls.
Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made. So she thinks, "If you can't beat them, join them". She disguises herself as her twin brother, Sebastian and goes out for the rival school, Illyria Boys' Soccer Team and makes it.
She easily carries the film with no hesitations and makes it worth while.
This is one of those films that shows so much in the trailer and yet it's not one of those films that when that part comes up it's not funny anymore.
The parts in the trailer that make you laugh are even more hilarious in the actual film.
Relative newcomer director Andy Fickman does such an incredible job on this film.

I love the teen type "chick flick" films and I knew this one would be great!!
He weaves together a potentially complicated storyline and makes it flow naturally and makes everything fall together.
