NOTES

Robert Iscove on the mix of romance and laughs in his films: "A lot of the teen films I've read are very one-level, but in the best high school movies, especially the early John Hughes movies like 'Pretty in Pink', 'Sixteen Candles' or 'The Breakfast Club', the comedy and the romanticism go hand-in-hand. 'She's All That' has humor, along with great heart and warmth. I didn't want the humor to overwhelm the heart." --quoted in the press materials for his directorial debut "She's All That", 1999

Iscove on the advantages that a director with TV experience offers: "I showed Harvey [Weinstein] a cut of this movie ["She's All That"] in mid-October, which was 2-1/2 weeks after we stopped shooting. Because of my experience in TV, I could do that. My team was used to working that quickly with me." --quoted in the Los Angeles Times, April 1, 2000
