15 Years Later: She’s All That Cast Remembers That Epic Prom Scene

The year was 1999, and it felt like anything could happen: Following a string of successful teen films in 1998, the teen era was officially back. To help kick things off in the final year before the Millennium was She’s All That, a sleeper hit that featured an ensemble cast, including Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook. The film told the story of a girl with a ponytail, Laney (Cook), who became the subject of a bet that Zack’s (Prinze Jr.) scheme to turn any girl into prom queen. The success of She’s All That introduced fans to a pre-Fast & The Furious Paul Walker, made Prinze the most desirable young man in Hollywood, and thanks to the iconic scene of Cook walking down the stairs in a little red dress, everyone was singing Sixpence None The Richer’s “Kiss Me.”

On the 15th anniversary of the film’s release, Dulé Hill, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe and Clea DuVall share memories from the set, dancing at prom and working with Walker.

Dancing At Prom

The film’s most iconic scene is undoubtedly the prom sequence, during which everyone performs that same choreographed number led by Usher. The cast reveals that the scene required weeks of prep and was choreographed by Adam Shankman, the now-famous movie director and reality competition judge.
