The nineties were all about teen romantic comedies that always seemed to include a make-over. One of the classics of the genre from that time, was She’s All That. Now, Netflix is planning on turning the tables and swapping genders with He’s All That. The film is directed by Mark Waters (Freaky Friday, Mean Girls) and written by R. Lee Fleming, Jr. who penned the original. It stars Addison Rae, Tanner Buchanan, Madison Pettis,Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Myra Molloy, Annie Jacob with Matthew Lillard and Rachael Leigh Cook. The synopsis for the film goes a little like this:

In this reimagining of 1999’s She’s All That, Padgett (Tik Tok star Addison Rae) has mastered her perfect high school life: She’s a popular beauty influencer with a huge following, and her hot pop star boyfriend makes her the envy of everyone on her feed. But after she catches him cheating while livestreaming, she goes viral for all the wrong reasons. To repair her reputation, Padgett makes a risky bet that she can turn her scruffy antisocial classmate Cameron (Cobra Kai’s Tanner Buchanan) into prom king material. Things get complicated when she finds herself falling for him IRL—and learning no one is quite who they seem on social media, least of all herself.


I am definitely not the target audience for this film, but Netflix seems to have found great success with this genre. With movies like The Kissing Booth and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before… this seems like a surefire bet for them. Although the original definitely hasn’t aged well, it is an interesting idea to play on it with a different gender. The addition of Mark Waters as director, the original writer penning the screenplay and Matthew Lillard & Rachel Leigh-Cook reprising their roles… this actually could be a fun, nostalgic little movie.

He’s All That will be streaming on Netflix, Friday August, August 27th.
