YMMV: She's All That
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer and Ear Worm-worthy Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim
  • Deader Than Disco: Used to be a very popular film, but the end of the 90s and increasing parodization have reduced it to prime Snark Bait.
  • Fridge Logic: Dean's 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.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Not Another Teen Movie makes it impossible to take She's All That seriously since its A-plot mirrors She's All That almost exactly.
  • Hollywood Homely: Granted, Zack's major concern was over Laney's personality, but a lot of emphasis is put on her physical makeover. WHO could possibly think Rachael Leigh Cook was unattractive? This has since become the most famous part of the movie, and an infamous example of this trope at work.
    • Beautifully parodied in Not Another Teen Movie: "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.
  • Karma Houdini: Taylor is mean to Laney, especially in competition for prom queen, and she wins.
