“I had high expectations for this movie. I guess that they were a little too high, because this movie did not work. It started off great, being fast paced, biting, and just plain mean. Any movie where the parents of both the head cheerleader and the quarterback cheer about their marriage, but scream about their pregnancy…well, it can still suck.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie cared too much about its subjects. It had a heart for the cheerleaders (either that or it was the toning down after the shootings), and thus I didnu0026#39;t feel that the point of the movie was to laugh at them, but to laugh with them. This is like American Pie, where we laugh with the characters. Except the humor that could have worked was aimed at them, thus making a conflict and making many jokes not funny. Also, the timing was off on alot of the jokes. u0026quot;You want to dust my a**u0026quot; should have been funny, but it wasnu0026#39;t.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo, if you like the light-hearted dark comedy genre (of which there arenu0026#39;t too many…none that I can think of off the top of my head), see this movie, otherwise, stay to the biting satire of Bring it On.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e3/10”
