Storyline Heading
Ryan Woodman has a massive crush on the most luscious knockout ever to walk its hallowed halls, Ashley Grant . Enter Chris, resident babe magnet, who's pining after Ryan's best friend Maggie, a girl-next-door with beauty, brains and heart. Ryan and Chris join forces and hatch a plan which, if successful, will land them both with the right girl-or so they think.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Sophomoric teen comedy loosely inspired by Cyrano de Bergerac. Will probably appeal to young teens, especially girls, but just about no one else.

Critic's Review Heading
Poor
The latest trend in teen films has been to crib from classic sources (Shakespeare being a common victim). Whatever It Takes is the latest film to go this route, ostensibly being "inspired" by Edmond de Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac (although this use of the material makes Steve Martin's Roxanne seem like an exacting interpretation). The film's bastardization of its supposed source aside, Whatever It Takes simply isn't any fun due in large part to the fact that these plastic, generic teenagers bear no resemblance to the guys and gals who wander the average high school corridors. There are far too many times when this movie descends from the level where it's merely dumb to where it's downright insulting to anyone with functioning brain cells.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
OK, he does play the accordion and his mom is the school's sex-ed obsessed nurse, but Ryan Woodman (Shane West) does have one thing in common with the coolest segment of the male population at Gilmore High--he has a massive crush on the most luscious knockout ever to walk its hallowed halls, Ashley Grant ( Jodi Lyn O'Keefe).

Enter Chris (James Franco), resident babe magnet, who's pining after Ryan's best friend Maggie (Marla Sokoloff), a girl-next-door with beauty, brains and heart. Ryan and Chris join forces and hatch a plan which, if successful, will land them both with the right girl-or so they think.
