Need a cheesy rom-com to gush over on a Friday night? If so, you’re just in luck. Making its debut on Aug. 25, 2021, “He’s All That” is sure to lure a young teenage audience with its basic yet intriguing plot and cast full of hyped up actors and social media stars. 

Starring Addison Rae as Padgett Sawyer, the movie quickly makes the audience aware that she is an aspiring Instagram influencer and seems to have the perfect life. She has been given sponsorships to grow her following, is well-known and popular and is dating the most desired boy at her school, Jordan Van Draanen (Peyton Meyer). But her whole life comes crashing down when she catches her boyfriend cheating on her while she is livestreaming, and due to this crucial mistake, she loses all her hard-earned sponsorships. But then a deal is presented to her, and she just can not pass it up; if she is able to take the weirdest boy in school and make him prom king, she will gain her sponsorships back.

As Sawyer goes about giving her new friend, Cameron, (Tanner Buchanan) a makeover, the duo take on many daunting tasks, but they do so together. At this point in the film, the audience may start to become less interested as it becomes more predictable and they think they know what will happen next, but the one-of-a-kind circumstances and scenarios the duo faces are sure to keep anyone hooked the entirety of the movie. That is saying a lot, considering my attention span is less than ideal.

Also, if you are in need of a good laugh, this movie will without a doubt, be able to provide, especially if you are susceptible to laughing at awkward moments or things that are so far-fetched that no one would ever experience in real life. There are a few of these what-the-heck moments, but they are sure to keep anyone with a sense of humor entertained and glued to the flat-screen. 

Although this movie has sparked negative attention in some areas, the positives of this movie heavily outweigh the bad. Even though totally ridiculous scenes fill up some of the time, there is no doubt that any teenager would find themselves glued to the plot of the romantic comedy. As much as they like to say they won’t form a crowd and watch this movie, there is no denying that with all this movie has going for it, it will continue to be successful as it is already a huge hit.
