Taurus: She’s All That (1999)
Taurus is a fixed earth sign, meaning they love and crave all sense of stability and routine in their life. They don’t want a new and different rom-com with a hundred different plotlines taking place; they want a classic that they can play on repeat until they know it by heart.
She’s All That is the epitome of a ’90s rom-com and there are many reasons that it’s a classic. It is one of the first and most famous movies to cash in on the romantic comedy tropes that are present in films today, from the “makeover scene” to the “date her for a dare” cliches, this movie is one of the originals, and Tauruses will appreciate that.
