High-school senior Ryan has a crush on sexy, popular Ashley. Ryan's best friend, Maggie, thinks he should get over it already. But Ashley's super jock cousin, Chris, has the hots for Maggie, and he's willing to do whatever it takes, including swapping identities and advice with Ryan, to win her heart. Everyone's got a date by prom time, but does anyone truly match up? In this hilarious romantic teen comedy featuring talented young actors Shane West (TV's Once and Again, Liberty Heights), Marla Sokoloff (TV's The Practice, Sugar and Spice), Jodi Lyn O'Keefe (She's All That, TV's Nash Bridges) and James Franco (TV's Freaks and Geeks, Never Been Kissed), mistaken identities are part of the fun of falling in love.

Critics Consensus: Whatever It Takes is another run-of-the-mill teeny-bopper romance flick. Cliche jokes and a tired plot capture few laughs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that some teens will want to see it, but a lot of reprehensible behavior and irresponsibly is presented here. There are many sexual references, as well as a lot of profanity.
