Movie Review

Padgett Sawyer ( Addison Rae ) is used to being the best in herself, and her videos of tips and advice have garnered her countless followers. But when a video circulated that showed her in an unpresentable state, she threatened to lose everything that was important to her. She then agrees to a bet with her friend Alden ( Madison Pettis ): Padgett is convinced that she can make scruffy outsider Cameron Kweller ( Tanner Buchanan ) prom king and restore her reputation. In fact, she succeeds in transforming the unpresentable nerd into a coveted school star. But things get complicated when she develops feelings for him herself…

As if the countless remakes, with which Hollywood repeatedly demonstrates an acute lack of ideas, weren’t enough, the dream factory has found another way to revive well-known material in recent years: the genders of the main characters are simply swapped. Something like this could be very exciting if old and new gender images are compared in this way. What has happened since the original? Is that still relevant from back then? In this way, one can give the appearance of being socially relevant and maybe even progressive. However, this potential is hardly used. In fact, films like Overboard and What Men Want are pretty trivial, and the swap is nothing more than a gimmick.

It’s no different with one like no other. The Netflix remake of the hit comedy One Like None from 1999 moves the events into modern times and even finds a suitable field of activity in the hypocritical optimization mania on social media. After all, whole careers are built there on wanting to make an audience better, more beautiful, and more successful. It is only logical that such an influencer now also refines the inconspicuous nerd. Otherwise, screenwriter R. Lee Fleming Jr. misses., who was already responsible for the story back then, to question the basic principle. A few adjustment screws were turned. Otherwise, however, one was proud of the original – or did not want to take any risks.
