* UnnecessaryMakeover: A famous example, going hand in hand with Hollywood Homely. While Rachel Leigh Cook does look nice after the makeover, the idea that she was in need of one is hard to take seriously.

The girl who even helped her change {{lampshade|d}}s this by saying that she's "new, [[BeautifulAllAlong but not improved]]".

* AcceptableTargets: The popular crowd are seen as shallow, vain and unworthy of any sympathy.



* FridgeLogic: Dean's [[SarcasmMode inspired]] choice for the bet. A girl who looks like Laney as opposed to people who weren't single, deeply unattractive or you know ''lesbian''. Any number of girls would have presented a greater challenge.

* FridgeLogic: Dean's [[SarcasmMode inspired]] choice HilariousInHindsight: Rachel Leigh Cook being in a LoveTriangle is amusing for the bet. A girl who looks like Laney as opposed to people who weren't single, deeply unattractive or you know ''lesbian''. Any number of girls ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' fans. She would have presented a greater challenge.later voice Tifa in the Compilation. Tifa is involved in one of the biggest love triangles still debated by fans to this day/

* NarmCharm: The BeautifulAllAlong moment is cliche and almost impossible to take seriously - due to rampant parodies and mocking on the internet. But damn if Rachel Leigh Cook's nervous grin as she reveals herself isn't endearing. And then she [[MomentKiller trips on her heels]].


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The movie is very obviously made in the 90s. Out of universe, it's yet another SettingUpdate of a classic work of literature following ''{{Film/Clueless}}'''s lead, and made during the period where teen high school comedies were all the rage. In-universe, Taylor dumps Zack for a guy famous for being on ''Series/TheRealWorld'', characters burst into spontaneous rap sequences and Creator/SarahMichelleGellar has a random cameo at the height of her popularity. Even the title and tag line ("hip, smart, hilarious") dates the movie to the 90s.

* KarmaHoudini: Taylor is mean to Laney, especially in competition for prom queen, and [[spoiler:she wins]].
** [[spoiler:MeaninglessVillainVictory: She wins prom queen]], but loses the respect of the whole school (which she never actually had in the first place) by [[spoiler:publicly insulting everyone who voted for Laney after being crowned]]. The last time we see Taylor in the film, she's being given a wide berth at graduation -- sort of her classmates unconsciously saying "Wait, high school's over! We don't have to put up with your shit anymore!"


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: We never find out exactly why Laney is hated or considered unpopular, other than her father being the pool man. There's also a confrontation between Laney and Taylor at the party that implies some kind of bad blood between them, but it's the first time they interact in the movie. Laney just acts like a bitch to several people for no reason, and seems no nicer than the popular crowd.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: The third act has most of the characters grasping it for all its worth. Zack spends the prom with Taylor even though he has no interest in her whatsoever, and doesn't approach Laney due to obstacles that at most would require mild rudeness to overcome. When Jesse overhears Dean in the bathroom, instead of following him to Laney and then telling her, he runs to Mac, then both of them go to Zack, and even when they get to him, Mac waits about two whole minutes for Jesse to catch his breath instead of just telling Zack herself.

* HilariousInHindsight: ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie'' makes it impossible to take ''She's All That'' seriously since its A-plot mirrors ''She's All That'' almost exactly.



** Beautifully parodied in ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie'': "Glasses? And a ''ponytail''? ''Ugh!''". Made funnier by the fact the Dean expy skips over all the actual challenging choices, such as an albino guitarist, a hunchback, and conjoined twins.
