  • Roger Ebert

    Of Amanda Bynes let us say that she is sunny and plucky and somehow finds a way to play her impossible role without clearing her throat more than six or eight times.

  • Carrie Rickey

    In this it succeeds. Like the Bard said, better witty foolishness than foolish wit.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    It will certainly appeal to its target audience, and Bynes is charming enough to carry the whole film on her shoulders, which is a good thing considering that she's in just about every scene and leading man Tatum is a stiff.

  • Claudia Puig

    This is a perfectly pleasant, entertaining and often witty romp with engaging performances.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A screwball comedy that made me wish I were 13 again, because this is precisely the kind of movie I would have gone nuts for in the ninth grade.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Winda Benedetti

    Most of the laughs are due to Bynes, a vibrant young actress with excellent comedic chops.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    So good-natured, and its cast seems to enjoy itself so thoroughly, that the total annihilation of disbelief it requires winds up feeling like a reasonable enough request.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Allison Benedikt

    It's a cute romantic comedy, just as Shakespeare intended.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jason Anderson

    Nothing classes up a teen movie better than the classics.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The girls who adore the likable Everygirl Bynes will find a lot to enjoy about the film, especially the boys who look as though they just were lounging around the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    A cross-dressing comedy that's all dressing can only, well, leave you cross.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Thanks to a winning cast, all of this is funnier than you would expect considering the erratic script.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ruthe Stein

    Has a certain charm and is sure to appeal to tweens, at least the female variety.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Neither smart enough nor funny enough to have cross-over appeal to any other demographic.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    As an actress, Bynes is wholesome to a fault. She impersonates a teenage boy yet never gives him one good dirty thought.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    She’s the Man amounts to little more than softcore porn for the tween set, with aesthetics ripped from the pages of the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog and virtually every scene revolving around Viola/Sebastian’s crafty escape from some impromptu disrobing.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Jordan Harper

    Doesn't have an unpredictable moment in it, borrowing heavily from just about every sports movie or teen comedy ever and, oh yeah, "Twelfth Night."

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    As insistent as its heroine to get its point across, She's the Man gathers up enough energy and likeable goodwill that it almost skirts past some extremely strained passages in which Bynes plays out being a boy.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Another gate-crasher at the let's-do-a-mediocre-update-of-Shakespeare party.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Fickman mostly soft-pedals the play's homosexual panic, generating a comedy that lacks both the verbal sophistication of its source and the sexual sophistication of its target audience.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Felix Vasques Jr.

    It's just dumb.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    The highschool hijinks may entertain the young, but those more familiar with the Bard will recognise this as a wasted opportunity.

    Empire Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    The surefire laugh-getter centers on using a tampon to stop a nosebleed. Watching this movie, I had to hope it could stop brain-drain.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Fails to exploit the myriad comedic possibilities, settling instead for broad, unconvincing slapstick aimed at 12-year-olds and gags Shakespeare would have rejected as ancient.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Its kooky hybrid of slapstick gender jokes already had whiskers on 'em in Shakespeare's day.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nathan Lee

    Everything projects as if for the benefit of a nearsighted and dimwitted ticket holder at the back of the room. To his credit, Mr. Fickman has mastered one device unique to the cinema, making repeated use of the corny training montage.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    There I sit, suffering total numbness of body and brain, no longer having to wonder what it might be like to be buried alive in gooey marshmallow.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Bynes appears in practically every scene, and the film seems to have been designed as a showcase for her comedic skills, which she apparently left behind in the trailer.
