She's All That!

One of the joys of the holidays for me is catching up on books and movies, either finding the time for new ones or revisiting old favorites.

Last month I did some of both--in addition to catching a 1999 teen movie on a cable station that I’d only vaguely heard of. Called She’s All That, it stars Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook, with the premise being: “A high school jock makes a bet that he can turn an unattractive girl into the school's prom queen.”

RIGHT up my alley! How had I missed this?

A hot guy, a bad boy, some snooty girls (look for a real young Anna Paquin from True Blood!), and a slightly-nerdy-we-can-all-relate heroine. Plus, a fun dance scene! While I will admit that a few times the dialogue was so predictable that I was able to speak the response before the on-screen character, consideration must be given to the fact that I am, of course, a teen romance writer!

So put this one on your next holiday list...a fun way to relax and get some smiles and “aww” moments.

And please tell us if you have any favorite books or movies that you like to rewatch when time permits!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE "She's All That!" Other movies from around that time that I re-watch when I can: "Down to You" (also with Freddie Prinze, Jr.), "10 Things I Hate About You," "A Walk to Remember," and "Here on Earth."

I love that movie, too. I'm glad you've finally seen it. I'll watch Clueless whenever it's on HBO..over and over.

This was one of my favorite movies in high school! I'm trying to get all of my favs on DVD (this was just before the transition from VHS) so I can watch them again (and again and again).
