She's the Man

Guest Author - Rain Battle

Viola lives for soccer and when her school announces plans to cut the girl's team, she's devastated. While trying to figure out a way to play the sport that she loves, Viola's twin brother Sebastian tells her that he's sneaking off to London for his big break into the music industry. He asks her to call his new boarding school to make excuses for him, but Viola does him one better. With the help of her friends, she transforms herself into her brother with the intention of pretending to be him to attend his school and play soccer with the boys while he's away.

Her plan is kooky enough without all of the complications that arise. Pretending to be her brother, she shares a room with her gorgeous roommate Duke, who she immediately develops a crush on. Duke actually has a crush on a pretty, popular girl at school, Olivia. Olivia has no interest in Duke, but is interested in the cute new guy at school, Sebastian, who of course, is actually Viola. If that wasn't enough to keep her busy, Viola is really in for a surprise when her brother comes back early from London and arrives at school with no knowledge of his sister's stunt.

Based very loosely on William Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night," this adaptation was directed by Andy Fickman ("Who's Your Daddy," "Refer Madness: The Movie Musical"). The film features Amanda Bynes, who currently costars in the television series "What I Like About You," Channing Tatum ("Coach Carter"), Laura Ramsey ("Lords of Dogtown"), and James Kirk ("Taken" TV miniseries). David Cross ("Arrested Development" TV) also makes an appearance.

Although the script isn't very original, the movie is sure to become a favorite among younger audiences. Amanda Bynes ("What a Girl Wants") is an experienced star and plays her role well. Channing Tatum is a gorgeous addition to the cast and makes an impressive difference as a completely different character from his smaller "Coach Carter" role.

This film is reminiscent of an 80s classic, "Just One of the Guys" (1985), with a very similar script and may be a bit more up the alley of viewers out of their teens.
