Excellent fun for younger viewers!
She's the Man is one of those "way better" teen comedy movies for tweens and teens. I loved it when it first came out on DVD. It's hilarious, fun and fairly clean. Viola (Amanda Bynes) is sort of a tom boy, she likes sports, especially soccer and wants to play on the boys team but can't seem to convince anyone that girls are just as good as guys. So she decides to "become" a boy herself by turning herself into her look-a-like brother Sebastian while he flees to England, not knowing that is sister is imitating him. Her transformation is a success with the help of her friends and she enrolls herself at her brother's school and becomes roomies with her future love interest, Duke, who has a crush on another girl named Olivia who actually has a crush on Viola (as Sebastian). Trying to keep up with her double life, Viola runs into some trouble which forces her to come clean and tell the truth about who she is and why she did it, while hoping they will still except her on the soccer team. Very funny movie! Not much violence except for a comic girl fight (hair pulling, punching, pushing) and some arguing. Sexual content is mild with some kissing, flirting, hugging, a butt slap...all in comedy style. A boy drops his pants to prove he's a boy and girl lifts her shirt to prove she's a girl (nothing shown). Language is mild with some slang. Viola's man voice is too funny! Excellent for the younger crowd - good messages too. Good for 12 and up!!
