In this series of Love, Haley, senior Haley ward reviews a rom com each day leading up to Valentine’s day. For day one, she reviews a classic rom com: When Harry Met Sally.

She’s the Man is such a light-hearted and fun teen rom com to watch. While I was watching the trailer I was not sure if I would like it, but I ended up really enjoying it! I would say this movie combines rom com with chick flick, and it is a great watch.

The plot is a complicated one to explain, and honestly the best thing I can tell you to do is go into the movie without reading a summary or watching the trailer. While the plot is pretty unrealistic, the characters make every moment entertaining. The two love interests are Viola, played by Amanda Bynes, and Duke, played by Channing Tatum. Both of the characters played their roles so well. Amanda is seriously so funny and does a great job of playing her complicated part. Channing plays the perfect popular athlete that has a kind and gentle side so well.

But to describe the movie in short, Viola pretends to be her brother at his boarding school in order to play on the soccer team. While in place of her brother, she falls in love with Duke, her roommate. A lot of other plot twists occur during the movie, but that is the broad summary. 

The movie is a great teen romantic comedy, and after watching a lot of rom coms with middle aged main characters, the plot was exciting and fast paced and honestly kind of refreshing! It is not a traditional rom com as a lot of the movie Amanda plays Viola dressed as a boy, but it offers a very interesting watch.

I give this movie a four out of five hearts. It was a very entertaining watch and none of the parts bored me! The high school setting reminds me of 10 Things I Hate About You (not as good as this movie, but still a similar feeling). I definitely recommend it for people in high school or college!

Love, Haley
