Remember the 1999 comedy “Elle est trop bien” and the track “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None The Richer? Well Netflix has decided to replay it with “He’s too good” which is revealed with a trailer.
Back in the 90’s with She’s so great
The late 1990s were marked by American comedies like American pie, Mary at all cost or… She’s so great ! In this film directed by Robert Iscove, Freddie Prinze Jr. (Remember … last summer) plays the hunk from high school, Zach. After his breakup with his girlfriend he embarks on a bet with his best friend Dean (Paul Walker). He will have to allow any high school girl present by his side to win the title of “prom queen” at the end of the year.
Dean finds the perfect victim for this: Laney, played by Rachael Leigh Cook. The girl does not meet the criteria of beauty of the time with his glasses, his overalls and his artist style. Which makes it a real challenge for Zach.
She’s Too Good is a fairly iconic film from the late 1990s marked by the famous piece Kiss me by Sixpence None The Richer who has clearly not aged.
Obviously, She’s so great is to be taken with a lot of hindsight. The idea that Rachael Leigh Cook’s look is repulsive is pretty absurd. No need to put on contact lenses, a dress, and makeup to make her attractive. Suffice to say that such a film would be difficult to pass today. Still, Netflix decided to give it a second life with titled proofreading He is too good.
Netflix turns the tables
As its title suggests, this time the roles will be reversed. She is a popular girl who will try to makeover the “nerdy” of the school. As can be seen in the unveiled trailer, He is too good will stall in our time. Young Padgett Sawyer being introduced as an influencer. We can already feel a little criticism on social networks and our relationship to our image. Facing the actress Addison Rae, Tanner Buchanan, also much less repulsive than what Padgett considers. Still, the two characters will end up befriending, or even more, until the truth comes out …
So no real surprise in this trailer forHe is too good which shouldn’t be a masterpiece, but could be entertaining. We especially remember the presence of Rachael Leigh Cook who will make the link with the previous film.
It is too good will be to discover on Netflix August 27.
