When someone mentions Shakespeare, most young people would directly think of an old, dead man that wrote plays that they would never understand. They also may think that they would never, ever enjoy any of his pieces; but little did they now that one of the teens favorite mid two thousand movie “She’s the Man” was based on one of Shakespeare’s plays. The comedic movie is based on Shakespeare’s very famous “Twelfth night.” The modern version of the play was viewed and loved by many teenagers who thought that they would never like any Shakespeare’s plays. I for one watched the movie many time’s before I noticed that they mention how “She’s the Man” is based on Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” in the beginning credits of the movie. Both play and
