It has unbelievably already been 12 years since the hit teen comedy She’s the Man graced our screens. There was so much that was awesome about this movie that fans well past their teens now still like to re-watch the film from time to time. Between giving us the peak of Amanda Bynes before she went off the rails and catapulting the career of Channing Tatum there is so much to like about the movie!
