Lovewrecked (2005)

Amanda Bynes plays Jenny a girl crazy in love with her rock star idol. So when she happens to fall overboard with her idol when on a cruise…and gets marooned on a seemingly deserted island….she hides the fact that they were still on the resort island…just to spend more time with him.

Amanda Bynes plays the typical character she usually plays. The talkative, goofy girl but also incredibly book smart. Here shes actually going to study medcine in college…while in What I Like About You she almost got into Columbia…I mean seriously its getting old…why can’t she play a normal girl…stuck working at the local supermarket with no future ahead and still be goofy. All her characters are carbon copies.

Anyway back to the movie…its ok…not much to say really…the usual teen flick kinda stuff…fun cute and cheery. There were a few funny moments…nothing that stands out though. I bet you can probably guess the ending right now…all happy of course. Would only recommend this if one…you absolutely love teen flicks and two…love Amanda Bynes…otherwise skip this one.

She’ the Man (2006)

A friend of mine recommended this movie. She told me that it was a funny movie. I wasn’t really too keen on it. I’ve outgrown watching teen flicks…they no longer appeal to me…but I do watch them from time to time. And if you’re not having too good a day…and just want to sit back and watch a movie where you don’t have to… pretty much think…then teen flicks are it…so are romantic comedies by the way.

So I finally watched it.What can I say…its pretty much for the tween/teen population…with plenty of good looking 20 somethings still playing teenage roles. Amanda Bynes still looks like she’s playing her role of Holly from What I Like About You. The story: Viola(Amanda) disguises as her brother Sebastian so she could join the schools boys soccer team…the point being , to show that she is as good as any boy at playing soccer. Viola’s/Sebastian’s roomate is Duke, who has a crush on Olivia but Olivia has a crush on Sebastian…and along the way, Viola/Sebastian falls for Duke…and so occurs some comical mishaps. OK so the movie is funny but there wasn’t any real laugh out loud moments.And of course it is predictable too.I think it would have been a pretty decent movie for the genre…if not for the overflow of cheese. The scene where Viola/Sebastian had her friends act like they were lusting over her were over done. One friend was enough. And they had to make Duke disapprove of Sebastians objectification of girls?? And near the end they had Duke’s friend profess his love for the nerdy girl??? How much cheesy moments can they throw into a movie?

Overall though, its a fun movie for the kids,with good looking people and a pretty good sountrack filled with fairly recent pop tunes that were very fitting for the film.If you love teen flicks I’m sure you love this one too.
