Word is out that more than a cabal of underground Amanda Bynes fans are wondering, ‘WILL CINESTUDIO EVER SHOW ONE OF HER FILMS?’ The time is now, at our Moonlight Movie: Stand up and be proud of your Bynes love. She is actually pretty awesome as a good-as-the-guys soccer player, who disguises herself as her brother to take on Cornwall Prep in the finals. Cleverly based on Shakespeare’s gender-switching comedy Twelfth Night, it ramps up the sexual tension as Bynes catches the eye of her straight roommate (a young Channing Tatum).
“I didn’t for one second believe the plot – but I did believe for the entire movie that Amanda Bynes was lovable!” Roger Ebert, Chicago-Sun Times.
