I remember watching this film when I was traveling with my soccer team to an away game and the whole bus was cracking up on the way there. It was helpful that we could relate to the main character and feel the pain and struggles she was having do to the sport she loves.
I can’t even believe this film is 10 years old. Where has time gone? Thank goodness this film has aged pretty well. The only things that are out-dated in it are what makes it still funny to this day.
It shocks me to still find some of my friends who haven’t seen this film. Like it is a really funny film. The endless debate is on which film is better: She’s the Man or Mean Girls. Personally, I love both films, but I think She’s the Man has a better message for girls to follow. Here is an article written by MTV that helps my position here.
If you haven’t seen it, go check it out because it is a hilarious film that everyone could enjoy.
