After news broke Tuesday that a remake of the 1999 high school comedy “She’s All That” is in the works, fans took to social media to voice their displeasure.
The original followed a high school jock (Freddie Prinze Jr.) who makes a bet that he can turn a shy art student (Rachel Leigh Cooke) into his high school’s prom queen. Paul Walker starred in the film as Prinze’s friend Dean. The remake will follow a similar premise and is expected to be developed with diverse leads in mind.
Read some of the tweets from fans below.
I hope the She’s All That remake includes a reference to the original’s reference to Can’t Buy Me Love, thus completing the circle of crap.

She’s All That was a VERY thinly-veiled remake/ripoff of My Fair Lady anyway!! Which was a remake of Pygmalion, which itself was–goddammit! — cinemasins (@cinemasins) April 8, 2015

“She’s All That” might be a guilty pleasure of mine, but I don’t think I’m alone when I say there is absolutely no need for a remake
