Dave's Rating:

1.5

… almost wins you over.

Who's in It: Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum, Laura Ramsey, Vinnie Jones

The Basics: Yeah, Twelfth Night, my big fat butt. This is Just One of the Guys, and not nearly as funny.

What's the Deal? It would help this movie's agenda if, when dressed as a teenage boy who wants to prove she can bend it like Beckham, Bynes appeared more, oh, I don't know, like a guy. As it is, she makes Barbra Streisand in Yentl look like Hulk Hogan. In fact, she comes off like a boy who's struggling to keep the lid on the fact that he's actually gay.

Points For: Demographically on-point casting of late-teenage hot people. Plus, Bynes' innate likeability, which almost wins you over. Almost.

Points Off For: Not using its premise for anything resembling original thoughts on the subject of teen conformity or gender expression. Wow, I just sounded like a women's-studies professor there.

The Ministry of Silly Beards: Cool Mr. Show and Arrested Development guy David Cross shows up in facial hair as the school's weirdo principal. But seriously, don't let that sway you. You can TiVo this thing a year from now when it's clogging up cable and get his bits in seconds.
