Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and around here that means one thing.... Theater Thursday!! This week's featured movie is a film I just discovered last week and every since I haven't been able to get enough, She's the Man.

She's the Man stars Amanda Bynes as Viola Hastings, a girl who loves soccer so much she's willing to pretend to be her brother Sebastian just to get a chance to play on the field. 

When Viola's girl team gets cut from the budget at her school, she decides to take her brother Sebastian's place at his new prep school. Since no one knows him, she enlists the help of her friends to give her a make over to make her a man. 

When she gets to her new school and takes over the role as her brother Sebastian she finds herself rooming with fellow soccer player, Duke (Channing Tatum). Over time she begins to have feelings for Duke but since she's pretending to be a man she can't tell him how she feels. Plus the fact that she's there for one thing... to play soccer. 

Along the way, she has to deal with the real Sebastian's girlfriend, Olivia who is Duke's crush but falls for Viola as Sebastian and many more crazy obstacles before she can see if Duke likes her for her and if she can make it out onto the soccer field.

So is this movie better or worse than the 90s movie Ladybugs? I think it's similar except the boy dresses as a girl to play soccer.

This is one of my all time favorite "girls' night" movies. Love, love, love it. I'm usually not such a bit fan of comedy, but I can never stop laughing while this is on screen.
