It's hard enough being the nerdy new guy on campus without also being the new girl on campus, who has fallen for the coolest guy on campus, who is totally obsessed with the most beautiful girl on campus, who is "crushing" on the nerdy new guy on campus.

Viola Johnson (Amanda Bynes) had her own good reasons for disguising herself as her twin brother Sebastian (James Kirk) and enrolling in his place at his new boarding school, Illyria Prep. She was counting on Sebastian being AWOL from school as he tried to break into the music scene in London. What she didn't count on was falling in love with her hot roommate, Duke (Channing Tatum), who in turn only has eyes for the beautiful Olivia (Laura Ramsey). Making matters worse, Olivia is starting to fall for Sebastian, who-for reasons Olivia couldn't begin to guess-appears to be the sensitive type of guy she'd always dreamed of meeting. If things weren't complicated enough, the real Sebastian has come back from London two days earlier than expected and arrives on campus having no clue that he's been replaced by his own twin sister.

Playing Viola, Amanda Bynes (WHAT A GIRL WANTS, TV's WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU) heads an ensemble cast that also includes a number of up-and-coming actors, including Channing Tatum (COACH CARTER), Laura Ramsey (LORDS OF DOGTOWN), Jonathan Sadowski (TV's AMERICAN DREAMS), Robert Hoffman (MTV's WILD 'N OUT), James Snyder (PRETTY PERSUASION), Alex Breckenridge (ROMY & MICHELLE: IN THE BEGINNING, BIG FAT LIAR), Amanda Crew (FINAL DESTINATION 3), Jessica Lucas (TV's LIFE AS WE KNOW IT), James Kirk (X2: X-MEN UNITED) and Emily Perkins (the GINGER SNAPS franchise). Rounding out the cast are soccer great-turned-actor Vinnie Jones (SWORDFISH, GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS) and Robert Torti (SHOWTIME'S REEFER MADNESS: THE MOVIE MUSICAL), with Julie Hagerty (JUST FRIENDS, AIRPLANE!) and David Cross (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, TV's ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT).

Inspired by William Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night," the contemporary comedy was directed by Andy Fickman (Showtime's REEFER MADNESS: THE MOVIE MUSICAL) and produced by Lauren Shuler Donner (the X-MEN franchise) and Ewan Leslie. The screenplay is by Ewan Leslie and Karen McCullah Lutz & Kirsten Smith (both ELLA ENCHANTED, LEGALLY BLONDE) from a story by Leslie.
