Netflix has released the first trailer for ‘He’s All That’, a gender-swapped remake/reboot of the 1999 hit comedy ‘She’s All That,’ starring Tiktok star Addison Rae and Tanner Buchanan as the young couple. Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard, both will reprise their roles from the 1999 movie, with the former starring as the mother of Rae’s character.
Check out the trailer below for ‘He’s All That’ releasing on Netflix globally on Friday, August 27th.
Rae has jumped from dancing on Tiktok to acting in movies and stars as Padgett Sawyer in the film, who is an aspiring beauty influencer who is tasked with turning the least popular boy in her high school, Cameron Kweller (Buchanan), into prom king. Padgett takes up the challenge after an embarrassing blowup at her ex-boyfriend goes viral on social media.
But that’s not as easy as she thought it would be, as her and Cameron’s perspectives on style and class couldn’t be any more different. As prom night quickly approaches, Padgett and Cameron each experience their own form of transformation, gaining insight about themselves and each other in the process.
Netflix’s official description reads,
“In this reimagining of 1999’s She’s All That, teen social media influencer Padgett’s humiliating on-camera breakup goes viral, leading her to make a risky bet to save her reputation: She swears she can turn scruffy antisocial Cameron into prom king material. But things get complicated when she finds herself falling for him IRL.”
For those who don’t know that ‘He’s All That’ is directed by Mark Waters and the film also stars Madison Pettis, Matthew Lillard, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Myra Molloy, and Annie Jacob. Rachael Leigh Cook, who starred in the original ‘She’s All That,’ plays Padgett’s mother in the new film.
