In this episode, to celebrate the birthday of our senior creative Erin Moon, we deep dive one of her favorite teen rom coms of the aughts: 2006’s She’s The Man. Amanda stans and optimists unite as we discuss this Amanda Bynes vehicle including which famous comedians she was primed to take the torch from to who stole her lunch money when things went south. Plus we discuss bad wigs, Paul Blart, and the believability of Channing Tatum playing a high schooler at age 26.
