Bring on the guilty pleasure. Equal parts satire, exploitation, and earnest (if not totally successful) teen flick, the film follows cheerleader Torrence (Dunst) as she becomes captain of the Rancho Carne High Toros cheer squad, who soon after discovers her squad's championship moves have been lifted from another school, the East Compton High Clovers. All of this culminates in a showdown between the two squads, while interspersed throughout are standard teenage goings-on. No gem, by any means, but fun if you're in the mood (or spirit). But be advised: probably too raunchy for its intended young adult audience.

Bring It On was made in the year 2000 and has a running time of 98 minutes. Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, and Jesse Bradford star in this fun comedy. The movie is aimed more for teenagers and up. So I wouldn't recommend young children watching it due to some of the humor. Bring It On is about a girl named Torrence who just became captain of her high school cheer squad, the Torros. Not long after becoming captain, Torrence finds out that their competition routines have have been stolen from another schools cheer squad, the Clovers, year after year. So this season she attempts to have an original routine. Meanwhile, the two squads compete to see who's team is better. I like this movie a lot. I thought it was a little exaggerated but that's what made the movie funny. The routines were amazing though. They have some really tough moves and stunt throughout the movie. Not to mention the comedy in Bring It One. I laughed non stop while watching this movie.

I like this movie because I'm a cheerleader and it's a fun movie to watch. I don't really recommend this for guys because they probably wouldn't like it. Even though this movie isn't really realistic, I still like it. They do show actual cheerleading skills, though. The whole "spirit stick" thing is really funny because they care so much about it in the movie but no one really believes that. I always see teams with their spirit sticks on the floor. Many things in this movie are over-exaggerated, and that is what makes it funny. I love the routines at the end of the movie because they do some really cool stunts and some of them are actually really hard to perform. At the football game in the movie when the cheerleaders have their "cheer-off," that is only semi-real. Teams usually just see who can be louder but normally just at basketball games. I like this movie and it will never get old.
