She’s the Man might not exactly be some teen comedy classic but had a few moments here and there and was a launching pad for Channing Tatum. The new Blu-ray comes from Paramount released on March 3rd.

Paramount Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.


Viola Johnson (AMANDA BYNES) is in a real jam. Complications threaten her scheme to pose as her twin brother, Sebastian, and take his place at a new boarding school. She falls in love with her handsome roommate, Duke (CHANNING TATUM), who loves beautiful Olivia (LAURA RAMSEY), who has fallen for Sebastian. As if that were not enough, Viola’s twin returns from London ahead of schedule but has no idea that his sister has already replaced him on campus.



This release comes with a Digital HD copy. From what I can tell, all bonus features were ported over from the DVD release.

Audio Commentaries:

  • Director Andy Fickman, Co-Writer/Producer Evan Leslie and Actors Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum, Laura Ramsey, Robert Hoffman and Alex Breckinridge
  • Co-Writer/Producer Evan Leslie and Producer Lauren Schuler Donner

I remember listening to these for my DVD review and I generally enjoyed the first track as it came across as some friends just chatting while track #2 is a little more technical and delves into the behind the camera elements.

Making the Man (15:09) is a basic behind-the-scenes featurette with interviews by the cast and crew discussing the production.

The Troupe (7:53) is a look at the cast and crew.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s… (4:27) — The film was inspired by “Twelfth Night”.

Deleted Scenes (11:29) — There are nine scenes either cut or trimmed for various reasons. Includes an optional commentary with Bynes, Fickman and Leslie.

Rounding things out is a Gag Reel (3:26), a Music Video (3:23) for “Let Go” by Dave Lichens and the Theatrical Trailer (2:25).


VIDEO – 4/5

She’s the Man comes to Blu-ray for the first time from Paramount, presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition. Outside of this being a very early-mid 2000s teen movie with its stylized opening credits and pop-punk music, the picture here looks half decent. Detail isn’t great but still fine and colors are well balanced. There were a few minor specs that I noticed while working on screen grabs but otherwise it’s a fine looking transfer.

AUDIO – 4¼/5

The included DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is more than adequate, especially for a film that’s strictly comedy oriented, with some minor depth for the soccer game scenes where you can hear the crowds and on-field action. I’m assuming this is a fine upgrade over the DVD’s standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track.
