She's hot. He's not. But when a popular high schooler is challenged to turn the dumpiest guy in school into a prom king, our pragmatic protagonist will do what it takes to make a winner out of this loser. What happens if they fall in love, though? That's the plot of Netflix's He's All That. Does it sound a bit familiar? It should if you grew up in the 90s. It's the gender-swapped reversal of 1999's She's All That, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook. Now, TikTok's Addison Rae and Cobra Kai's Tanner Buchanan lead this do-over — or, more fittingly, makeover. And if you're wondering why these young stars look familiar, we're here to help!
