Sitting back and enjoying any one of the many Amanda Bynes movies out there is a surefire way to have a fun, relaxing evening. Rosy-cheeked California-born starlet Amanda Bynes has made a career out of playing the fresh-faced girl next door.

Apart from television, Amanda Bynes has also carved a successful career as an actress in Hollywood films, particularly in the comedy genre. Some of Amanda Bynes' notable movies include "What a Girl Wants," "Hairspray" and "She's The Man."
