She's the Man is somewhat a romantic comedy movie. Viola is a soccer player at her high school. However, before school starts, she finds out that the girls' soccer team has been cut, due to funding. So, the girls asked to try-out for the guys' soccer team. The coach declares that girls can't play as well as the guys.
Viola's twin brother, Sebastian, is a musician. He takes off to London for a musical gig. Viola's comes up with the idea to impersonate as her brother and try-out for the rival school's soccer team.
All seems to go well, except a few things. Viola's mother is trying to get Viola into a debutante ball. Viola, as Sebastian, is falling in love with her male roommate. Meanwhile, the roommate is infatuated with another girl. Sebastian's girlfriend is trying to have a face-to-face talk with Sebastian about their relationship. Additionally, another girl is infatuated with "Sebastian". What started off with one little lie grew into a web of lies and deception.
This was supposed to be a cute romantic comedy. However, Amanda Bynes, who played Viola and Sebastian, just couldn't act right. Her acting made the movie somewhat cheesy. It was a funny movie but could've been better.
