She's the Man (2006)

This is an entertaining though quite hollow adaptation of Shakespeare's The Twelfth Night.

Viola is a soccer player bent on showing that girls can play as well as boys. She disguises herself as a boy and begins classes at another school to prove the point. Situational humour ensues and as it is a comedy, the end is happy.

There is plenty of slapstick and overly dramatic fare and overall, the film succeeds as entertainment, but don't expect much more than that. She's the Man panders more to its teenage audience than it ought to.
