It's hard enough being the nerdy new guy on campus without also being the new girl on campus, who has fallen for the coolest guy on campus, who is totally obsessed with the most beautiful girl on campus, who is "crushing" on the nerdy new guy on campus.
Comedy Romantic - This is a light comedy aimed at the teen market, primarily females,
but it has potential to appeal to a wider audience as it is based
on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Fans of star Amanda Bynes's
television work will not be disappointed as it is in line with her
zany comic style. There is some mild suggestiveness, but overall
it should be safe for a family audience.
PROFANITY: 1 GD; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Some fights; largely played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Rough soccer action. COMEDY: Nonstop physical and verbal humor; some mildly suggestive.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average ...She's the Man is neither smart enough nor funny enough to have cross-over appeal to any other demographic.
Roger EbertFull Review Good The movie is good-natured and silly, and at the end there is a big soccer game between Illyria and Cornwall during which both Viola and the real Sebastian are able to offer proof of their genders...
USA TodayFull Review Good She's the Man is a breezy, funny, gender-bending, self-empowerment teen comedy/romance that has tenuous Shakespearean origins.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 100 moviegoers: "She's the Man" is a movie targeted to teen females and they loved it. They represented the largest number of opinions collected and they all rated it very high. Older females weren't too far behind. So, "She's the Man" is a movie I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR ALL THE LADIES!
There aren't many male opinions but most, especially adult males, enjoyed "She's the Man." I have no problem recommending this movie as a great date movie since you guys will likely find it enjoyable and you will earn some serious brownie points with your lady.
Viola Johnson (Amanda Bynes) had her own good reasons for disguising herself as her twin brother Sebastian (James Kirk) and enrolling in his place at his new boarding school, Illyria Prep. She was counting on Sebastian being AWOL from school as he tried to break into the music scene in London. What she didn't count on was falling in love with her hot roommate, Duke (Channing Tatum), who, in turn, only has eyes for the beautiful Olivia (Laura Ramsey). Making matters worse, Olivia is starting to fall for Sebastian, who—for reasons Olivia couldn't begin to guess—appears to be the sensitive type of guy she'd always dreamed of meeting. If things aren't complicated enough, the real Sebastian comes back from London two days earlier than expected and arrives on campus having no clue that he's been replaced…by his own twin sister.
