Introduction

He's a She? Have you ever seen a movie and wondered, "Haven't I seen something like this before?"? If you have read William Shakespeare's play, As You Like It and have seen Andy Fickman's movie, She's the Man, you would surely ponder this question. As You Like It, is a play about a Duke's daughter who gets kicked out of the court with her father.

She's the Man is a movie about a girl who is very dedicated to soccer but her school cuts the soccer team. ...read more.
