She's All That Turns 15: 1999 was an Unforgettable Year in Teen Cinema
If you liked Smash Mouth and high school scheming, 1999 was your year
Cue Sixpence None the Richer: She’s All That was released 15 years ago this week.
The story of a hunky high schooler attempting to woo a girl of the dorky, artistic persuasion as part of a jock bet, She’s All That inevitably ends – spoiler alert – with the girl transforming into a babe and the pair falling in love.
She’s All That also ushered in a monumental movie year for all those between the ages of 13 and 19. If you were looking for something to see on those awkward, braces-filled first dates, 1999 made it easier than ever before.
Along with She’s All That, these eight teen classics all hit theaters the same year.
