"Is that true? Am I a bet, am I a bet, am I a FUCKING BET?!"

A 1999 teen romantic-comedy starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook (in her first leading role). It's a High School modernization of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, which is better know by the musical it spawned, My Fair Lady.

Zack is the Big Man on Campus and has everything going for him: Hot girlfriend, his choice of university, school soccer star, student council president. When his girlfriend dumps him, Zack bets his friend Dean that he can replace her and make any girl in school prom queen in just six weeks. Dean takes that bet and selects Laney, a poor but clever art student, to be the object of Zack's experiment. Zack gets to work.

Laney is at first hostile to Zack's attempts to get close to her; she's odd but likes herself just the way she is. Eventually, though, Zack worms his way into her friends circle and convinces her to undergo a makeover. Just as the two are getting close, Dean decides he wants Laney for himself. He asks Laney to prom, and when she says no, he reveals that the only reason Zack got close to her was to win a bet. Heartbroken, Laney confronts Zack and shouts the now-infamous line: "Am I a bet? Am I a fucking bet?"

Although Laney vows not to attend prom, the night of Dean shows up at her house and offers to take her. At the dance, he brags to his friends about how he's going to sleep with her. A friend of Laney's overhears and reports it to Zack, who tries to stop the proposed carnality. Meanwhile, the Prom King and Queen are being announced. Who will be the winner? Will Zack stop Dean? Will he and Laney reunite? What do you think? You might be wrong!

The movie was incredibly popular in its day and spawned a whole bunch of parodies; probably the best and best known is Not Another Teen Movie.

This movie provides example of:

 Jesse: Good song.

Jesse and Mac: (in unison) It's my favorite.

Jesse: I'm Jesse Jackson. I'm not a good dancer.

Mac: I'm Mac. I go to a school with 500 chicks.

 Chandler: It's just... I've seen you in gym class and... you run like a girl.

Laney: I am a girl.

Chandler: Oh, you know what I mean.
