Prepare Your Makeover Montages, She’s All That is Getting a Reboot

Who wasn't wearing an enormous gyro hat in 1999?

I blame you, Kimmy Gibbler (for all things, but especially this). The latest addition in the recent string of nostalgia-fueled reboots? The ’90s “Pygmalion adaptation” about a dork who takes off her glasses and head-falafels to become a smoking hot prom queen, She’s All That.

According to Tracking Board, The Weinstein Company and Miramax are set to “revisit” the ’90s hit with director Kenny Leon (the 2012 Queen Latifah Steel Magnolias movie and one episode of Ghost Whisperer). The original film, which WAS NOT WRITTEN BY M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN, starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cook, Anna Paquin, Gabrielle Union, and the late Paul Walker. Also lots of spaghetti strap dresses and chunky foam platform heels.

What do you guys think of the powers that be rebooting She’s All That, and of the recent trend of resurrecting late ’80s and early ’90s hits? (I don’t think anyone was clamoring for a She’s All That reboot, and considering we’re also getting more Coach, popular opinion doesn’t seem to be the deciding factor here.)

Although I think the messages I internalized from She’s All That (falafel hats and introspection=bad, boys whose hotness is only eclipsed by their cruelty=rad) might have more to do with how insecure I was in 1999, I really don’t remember the movie being, like, a seminal teen hit or anything. Not when 10 Things I Hate About You came out the same year. (Not a suggestion by the way, Hollywood. Leave 10 Things alone.)

What do you think, friends?
