Get past the familiar story and the fact that adorable Bynes can in no way pass for a boy, and this light-hearted teen comedy provides an amusing take on Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." When the girls' soccer team is disbanded at her prep school, star soccer player Viola (Bynes) disguises herself as her twin brother Sebastian (Kirk) and takes his place at his new school. Her first problem (besides the cross-dressing) is falling for handsome roomie/soccer captain Duke (Tatum), who has a crush on Olivia (Ramsey) who's soon crushing on Viola--ah, Sebastian. Confusion follows.

This is definately one of my favorites! This movie will surely give you a good laugh! Amanda Bynes is hilarious! Her part of Viola is perfect, especially when she pretends to be her brother, Sebastian, just to play on the guys soccer team to prove she's just as good or even better. Her ex-boyfriend is on their rival team, and she is really anxious to beat them. She (when she was pretending to be her brother) became one of the guys and created a special bond with her roomate and teamate Duke (Channing Tatum). At times it gets pretty difficult to be 2 people at once but she manages to do it. She has a crush on Duke but he likes Olivia, and only met Viola once by accident. Olivia likes Sebastian and a whole mix of feelings arise between the characters. Her real identity is revealed during the game against their rival team. Someone found out about her and spilled the beans. People get mad and relationships are made but she still gets to play on the guys team and wins the game.
