Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about She's the Man.
Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema - 9/10 by Mark PfeifferShe's the Man is cleverer than the average teen movie, but it gets so wrapped up in plot mechanics that it loses the characters
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 8/10 by Winda BenedettiMost of the laughs are due to Bynes, a vibrant young actress with excellent comedic chops.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger EbertOf Amanda Bynes let us say that she is sunny and plucky and somehow finds a way to play her impossible role without clearing her throat more than six or eight times.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Carrie RickeyIn this it succeeds. Like the Bard said, better witty foolishness than foolish wit.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Wesley MorrisA screwball comedy that made me wish I were 13 again, because this is precisely the kind of movie I would have gone nuts for in the ninth grade.
USA Today - 8/10 by Claudia PuigThis is a perfectly pleasant, entertaining and often witty romp with engaging performances.
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Ken FoxIt will certainly appeal to its target audience, and Bynes is charming enough to carry the whole film on her shoulders, which is a good thing considering that she's in just about every scene and leading man Tatum is a stiff.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Carina ChocanoSo good-natured, and its cast seems to enjoy itself so thoroughly, that the total annihilation of disbelief it requires winds up feeling like a reasonable enough request.
Chicago Tribune - 6/10 by Allison BenediktIt's a cute romantic comedy, just as Shakespeare intended.
Brag Magazine - 6/10 by Clint MorrisByrnes is an absolute delight...it kicks goals
Film Journal International - 6/10 by David NohAnything resembling real wit or charm is strictly A.W.O.L.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 6/10 by Jason AndersonNothing classes up a teen movie better than the classics.
