{{Tomboy}} Viola (Bynes) is intensely into soccer, so much that when her school, Cornwall, cancels the girl's soccer team and refuses to let her play on the boy's soccer team she hatches a [[SweetPollyOliver plan to show them and her Jerkass ex-boyfriend that a girl can play just as well as a boy.]] Viola has a twin brother, Sebastian (James Kirk, [[NamesTheSame no, not]] [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries that one]]), and this brother has decided to run off to London for two weeks to play with his rock band just before he is to start at Corwall's rival school, Illyria. The twins decide to help each other and solve the other's problem at the same time.

With the help of her [[TheDandy sharp-dressing hairdresser pal Paul]], Viola becomes Sebastian!Viola, enters Illyria, and [[IncrediblyLamePun voilà!]]. It's not a perfect disguise, but no one at the new school has met Sebastian (so they don't know the difference), and their parents are clueless because they're divorced and Illyria is a boarding school. Viola and Sebastian simply tell each that they are staying with the other, Her roommate is Duke (Tatum), the eventual LoveInterest, but Sebastian!Viola has problems at first because of Sebastian's permanent record (he's a troublemaker) and because Viola is still a girl under her disguise. With a bit of help from her hairdresser friend, Sebastian!Viola is accepted into Duke's group of friends but is still second string for the boys soccer team.

* CoversAlwaysLie: {{Tomboy}} Viola doesn't like dresses and high heel shoes, and in the movie she exclusively wears pants/shorts and sneakers even when she's dressed as herself and not Sebastian!Viola. The only few times she wears a dress is because her mother forces her to. Yet on the cover she's wearing a very short skirt and high heels.
* EmbarrassingRingtone: Olivia has Music/{{Aqua}}'s ''Barbie Girl'' for her ringtone. This causes some problems when she's impersonating her brother Sebastian and she forgets to change it.

* ArtisticLicenseSports: In the final game. Viola's penalty is saved by the opposition's goalkeeper, and she stays where she is. When the ball is headed back in, she is standing in an offside position, meaning her otherwise brilliant winning goal would not have counted.

* NoSocialSkills: Eunice does come off as a genuinely nice girl, she just has absolutely no idea how to chat to boys in a way that doesn't scare them off. Rare for this type of character is that she actually seems to be aware of this, noting that her ''intensity'' is a problem.

* RuleOfFunny: Even if we're generous and say that it would have hurt her half as much as it would a guy, neither gender is capable of no-selling a soccer ball to the groin to the point that they have to ''fake'' being in pain.

* JerkassHasAPoint: While he was being rather a dick about it, Cornwall's coach did have the facts on his side in stating that girls generally don't have as much of the requisite physical prowess for sports that boys have. Of course, the science proving this deals with ''averages'', meaning that some outlier gals (such as Viola, for one) ''do'' have the necessary prowess to compete with boys. What really makes the coach a jerk is that he wasn't even willing to let Viola and her friends ''try'' proving that any of them were outliers; Illyria's coach proves to be much more sensible and on the level about this upon discovering one of his first-stringers is a girl.
