Zack is the BigManOnCampus and has everything going for him: Hot girlfriend, his choice of university, school soccer star, student council president. When his girlfriend dumps him, Zack bets his friend Dean that he can replace her and make any girl in school prom queen in just six weeks. Dean takes that bet and selects Laney, a poor but clever art student, to be the object of Zack's experiment. Zack gets to work.

* AccidentalMisnaming: A starstruck girl is delighted when Zack speaks to her in the opening. She's reminded that he called her Connie, when her name is Melissa.



* BeautifulAllAlong: One of the trope definers.

to:

* GrandStaircaseEntrance: The entrance to the prom dance is a rather long and fancy spiralling staircase. Laney gets a downplayed version earlier, descending the stairs of her house after her makeover.



* InformedPoverty: Laney is teased with comments like "Isn't your dad my pool man?", yet she lives in a very nice house. Cleaning pools must be a lucrative business in the area.
** Near the end of the film, her dad actually brings this fact up saying that people seem to think that he's of a lower class because he cleans pools, but he owns his own business and does have a nice house with its own pool and the neighbourhood looks like one that would have a lot of pools, so he probably does make a respectable amount of money. The comment was probably just meant to belittle Laney's father for having a blue collar job rather than imply he doesn't make much money from it.

The movie was incredibly popular in its day and spawned a whole bunch of parodies; probably the best and best known is ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie''.



* BrokenAesop: Was the message supposed to be that anybody can be special? Well sure you can, as long as you strip away everything that makes you an individual in any way.
** Has your boyfriend lied shamelessly to you? Well, you'd better forgive him, because he's the best you're gonna get.
** It's okay to revenge-date.
