diva and sass queen herself, Kourtney Kardashian! Many of these names you’ve probably seen in other childhood shows or other shows also on Netflix. Now they’ve come together to make this remake of a classic movie, “He’s All That.”  “He’s All That” is a recreation of the 90s classic, “She’s All That.” When Padgett Sawyer decides to give Cameron Kweller a makeover as a bet, it then leads to something more. You would think of it as a romantic comedy, but it’s worse than that.  

There’s nothing wrong with a romantic comedy but this one is bad. I’m not gonna lie when I first heard this movie was coming out, I thought, why try to mess up a classic? Let’s see if this movie even stands a chance against the classic. I should’ve known that nothing ever compared to the original. You can’t compete with a classic. I was wrong to even watch it after the trailer, this movie doesn’t live up to the expectations the stars of the movie gave it. It’s the type of movie that makes you cringe due to the terrible acting. I guess one good thing about this movie is you’ll laugh at the cringiness.   

There’s nothing wrong with these actors but they could’ve done better. When it comes to the classic popular girl and nerd love story, some movies go overboard but at least the ending was sweet. If you decide to watch this movie, just be prepared.
