Talks for a remake of She's All That began in September 2020, with Waters to direct, Fleming Jr. set to return as the film's screenwriter, and Rae to star. Principal photography began in December 2020 in Los Angeles, California.

One day, Padgett discovers that her boyfriend, influencer and aspiring hip hop artist Jordan Van Draanen, ditched her for a backup dancer. She finds herself humiliated when a live stream of her outburst results in her loss of followers and sponsorship deals.

Over time, while keeping her word on the bet, Padgett begins to bond more with Cameron and discovers that he and his younger sister lost their mother years ago in a plane crash and that they live with their grandmother while their father is residing in Sweden. Padgett fixes up Cameron's appearance and attire, and tries expanding his social interactions at her friend Quinn's party, where he saves her from suffering humiliation when Jordan appears with the girl he cheated on her with.

The next day, Alden turns on Padgett, revealing her plot to become prom queen alongside Jordan and her true colors. She is also responsible for intentionally live-streaming Padgett's outburst. Padgett begins to fall for Cameron but she is afraid to express her feelings after she kisses him. When Brin finds out that Padgett kissed Cameron, she advises him to ask her to prom.

In an attempt to ensure Padgett's loss, Alden exposes the bet she made with Padgett to Cameron, who now believes that Padgett only showed interest because of the bet. On the day of the prom, Padgett's mother encourages her to still go, telling her to be herself and not the social influencer.

Cameron refuses to go to prom but Brin, realizing that her older brother has been smiling for the first time since their mother's death and Padgett came into his life, persuades him to go. He doesn't show up and Padgett declines her role as Prom Queen. She then finds Cameron outside the school on a horse and kisses him after apologizing.

In September 2020, a gender swapped remake of She's All That was announced by Miramax titled He's All That, with Mark Waters to direct, original screenwriter R. Lee Fleming Jr. to write, and Addison Rae to star.[6][7] Tanner Buchanan had also been cast, along with Myra Molloy, Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, and Annie Jacob.[8][9]

He's All That had its world premiere at the NeueHouse in Hollywood, California on August 25, 2021,[2] before it was released on August 27, 2021, by Netflix.[16] According to Netflix, it was the number one film on their service that week.[17]

Courtney Howard of Variety said "He's All That makes some smart alterations to the original despite mimeographing the structure, and strikes a benevolent balance between old and new with a light sprinkling of references. However, there are many more maddeningly underwhelming elements."[20] ABC News' Peter Travers gave a negative review, saying "manufactured for the Kissing Booth crowd, this gender-swapped, TikTok-friendly update of the 1999 teen hit sounds awful and it often is, but enough charm pokes through the cracks to sucker anyone who ever fell for a makeover fable."[21] Robyn Bahr of The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "He's All That may be a flattened reflection of its predecessor, but both films are charming enough to get away with about one anal sex innuendo joke apiece" and that the film "is really no worse than the first film."[22]

Nell Minow, writing for, was more positive in her review of the film, giving it a score of 3 out of 4 stars. She wrote: "sweet little end of summer sorbet with appealing young performers and a script that refreshes the original without overdoing it."[23] Michael Ordoña of the Los Angeles Times gave a mostly positive review by stating "You'll be pleased to discover the entertaining remake has its charms; it actually is all that, for the most part."[24]

"He's All That" is a gender-swapped Netflix remake of the popular 1999 movie "She's All That" where popular high schooler Zack Siler (Freddie Prinze Jr.) gave less popular classmate Laney Boggs a makeover to win a bet.

Cook told Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima earlier in August that she didn't hold onto the red dress after she wrapped filming "She's All That" in 1999 and isn't sure what happened to the outfit afterward.

"But it's humbling right?" the "Scream" actor told the publication. "You look at your expanse of your career and here's this moment that people still remember all this time later and call out. It gives you a sense of pride and that you've made it this far."

Rae told E! News on Monday that it was "incredible" having Kardashian film "He's All That" with her. (The two aren't actually physically present in the same frame at any point in the movie and are just seen speaking over the phone.)

Did you really think he wasn't going to return for the new movie? Aw, you did? That's sweet.While he didn't reprise the iconic role that was The Real World star Rock Hudson, Lillard did once again show off his dance moves as snarky principal/school emcee Mr. Bosch. But Padgett's TikTok rapper/influencer ex-boyfriend Jordan Van Draanen (Peyton Meyer) is definitely his 2021 counterpart.

While it's hard to top Anna Paquin's understated and underrated turn as Mackenzie Siler, Isabella Crovetti's Brin proves to be just as invested in her sibling's happiness. Both are only sophomores, but prove to be the human kick-in-the-pants that both Zack and Tanner needed to get the girl.

In both movies, "The Bet" has their own artistic alcove that is off-limits to most. For Laney, it was her basement art studio, where she and Zack almost shared their first kiss after she opened up about her mom's death. Cameron and Padgett, meanwhile, do smooch in his photography darkroom.

While Hall and Rae broke up earlier this year, Seventeen reported that they were dating while filming for the movie was ongoing, so his appearance isn't too much of a surprise. Hall's cameo is uncredited and he doesn't have any lines in the movie.

Rachael Leigh Cook played Laney Boggs, the female heroine, in "She's All That." Her role in "He's All That" isn't a continuation of Boggs' story, but she appears in the film as Padgett's mother: a nurse who supports her daughter while occasionally joking about not understanding her job as an influencer.

Cook told The A.V. Club that while she wasn't part of the decision to not reprise her old leading role from the 1999 film, she also thought that it was "nice to not have to have the pressure of reprising a role" from a film that's over 20 years old.

Matthew Lillard played Brock Hudson, a fame-obsessed reality TV star, in "She's All That." His role in the new movie is markedly different: he plays Principal Bosch, the deadpan administrator of Padgett's school.

Less than one might hope, actually. In theory, while the Cameron/Laney/Eliza Doolittle character changes outwardly, expanding their world and embracing their untapped potential, the Padgett/Zack/Henry Higgins figure ought to have the deeper transformation, realizing that they've long been living by a false set of values. No such thing happens here. It simply can't. The movie revolves around Rae just as much as its plot does around Padgett; it's not about to delegitimize her entire class of celebrity, even though that's the only worthwhile way to end it. Padgett is granted one (comically shallow) moment of growth, acknowledging that sometimes she presents herself on social media as more polished than she is in real life. This would have maybe passed for a fresh observation eight or 10 years ago, and as an epiphany here it comes up entirely short as it fails to address the deeper falseness of social media and the trap of living one's life on it.

But it might be just as well that Padgett is not given a real emotional arc, nor anything resembling an internal life. Even when little is asked of her, Rae's acting is not up to the challenge. Buchanan doesn't exactly deliver a star-making performance either, but he's not even given a chance to. It may be called He's All That, but the movie belongs to Rae, for better or for worse. 041b061a72
