Zach Siler is the typical cool kid in his school. He’s got tons everything the “big man on campus” has, including a popular, mean-spirited girlfriend, who eventually dumps him when she finds a new, “cooler” guy to jerk around. Trying not to show his disappointment, and keep his cool demeanor, Zach retorts by taking a bet from his best friend that he can transform any girl on campus into the next prom queen. Enter Laney Boggs, a dorky, unpopular student who doesn’t seem to stand a chance. Zach takes the bet, befriends Laney, and does what he can to turn this high school dud, into prom queen extraordinaire. Despite everyone’s expectations, Zach helps Laney clean up, and transforms her into one of the most stunning girls in the school. Turns out, the bet comes at a price though, and Zach finds himself falling in love with his project, but when she finds out she was the subject of a bet, she is hesitant to believe that his feelings are real.
