A totally original awesome movie!
on September 18, 2003
This movie is great! It stars, Freddie Prinze Jr. as, like, the coolest, smartest, most popular guy in school. His girlfriend dumps him in the beginning, so you feel, toooootally sad for him. Like, who is Freddie going to take to the prom? Anyway his girlfriend dumps him for Matthew Lillard playing, Brock Hudson (which is like a totally real sounding name) and he is, like, such a jerk that you hate from the begining. Then like, one of Freddie's friends is all like "Dude, I bet, like you couldn't make any girl you take to the prom into the prom queen!" and Freddie's like "Bro, I totally could, do you want make a bet about it?" and his friend's all "Dude, totally!" Then he picks Rachael Leigh Cook, who is totally a nerd, and like uncool and stuff, and Freddie's like "Nah dude! She's like a dweeb! I can still do it though." This part is really believable because kids in highshcool make bets like this, like all the time. Then Freddie talks to Rachel and makes her take off her dork clothes, glasses and let her hair down. Then she transforms, into like pretty and stuff. And she's really hot and, "All That", because she wasn't pretty at all before. Freddie goes to his friend and he's like, "I am, like, totally going to win this bet bro!" and his friend's all, "Dude!" Anyway, then something TOTALLY originally and unexpected happens! Freddie, like falls in love with Rachel, even though she's like a dork and stuff, he find out she's like totally nice and funny and stuff. Then another plot twist happens, when Freddie and Rachel are about to go to the prom and she finds out about what Freddie did! She's like "I can't believe you made a bet about me! That's like, bad!" and then Freddie's like "But I like, totally like, love you now." then Rachel's says, like "I am not going to this prom with you, because I am like really sad about all of this." Now Freddie's like sad too and he's like "Oh no, what did I do?" He goes over to Rachel's house, and like, talks to her about how he feels, and then she's all "Even though you made that bet, like, I know you love me know, and I like tooooootally love you too." So that's, like, what happens in the movie and I think that everyone should totally see it because it's cool and believable, and like the acting's real good. This kind of stuff, like, totally happens in high school. I think Freddie should, totally, win an Oscar, because he is like sooooo hot in this movie. Or at least get a Golden Globe or whatever.
