20-year-old Addison Rae has risen to become an internet sensation thanks to her viral TikToks and now she’s trying on the movie star label with her first movie, He’s All That. The Netflix film is a remake of the 1999 classic rom-com that starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as a high school jock, Zack, who makes a bet to turn the school’s loner, Rachael Leigh Cook’s Laney into prom queen. This time Rae is the high school it-girl and Cobra Kai’s Tanner Buchanan will be the object of the bet.
The first full trailer for He’s All That has now dropped (above) and we have our first look at how the She’s All That remake is going to look like. It’s full of nostalgia for the original movie and some modern updates that will certainly keep us guessing when the Netflix film drops later this month.
The He’s All That trailer starts with Addison Rae filming a live social media video with her friends that has her character, Padgett Sawyer, getting ready to surprise her boyfriend on the set of his latest music video. To her surprise, she ends up streaming herself finding out she’s being cheated on, leading to her creating a very public scene that goes viral.
It looks like her mom will be played by none other than Laney from She’s All That, Rachael Leigh Cook, who consoles her about the breakup. One of her friends, played by Madison Pettis from The Game Plan, then dares Rae’s character to achieve a makeover on another man after doing so to her ex boyfriend. They make the bet and choose Tanner Buchanen’s Cameron Kweller, who is described as a “disaster,” “weird” and “antisocial” by Padgett.
She gives him a swanky makeover, amidst a Kourtney Kardashian cameo, but in between then, Padgett and Cameron seem to find an unlikely connection despite being opposites on the high school food chain. He’s All That looks like a super fun bubblegum teen romantic comedy complete with Buchanen putting his Cobra Kai moves on display, Addison Rae showing off her TikTok dance moves during prom and a few cool She’s All That nods.
The song in the background of the He’s All That trailer is “Kiss Me” originally by Sixpence None the Richer and it served as the theme song to the 1999 movie at the time. She's All That helped give the song its mainstream popularity and now it’s interwoven into the He’s All That trailer. Also, Matthew Lillard, who played Brock Hudson, the new man of Zack’s girlfriend in the original movie, is in He’s All That dancing during the prom sequence. Looks like there could be a ton of fun callbacks for fans of the 1999 classic!
He’s All That is coming to Netflix on August 27 along with a number of exciting releases this month.
