Storyline

Jeannie, a teenage girl attending Amorosa High, joins the school cheerleading squad as a means of finally attaining the success and social independence that was out of reach in the strict household her parents maintain. The liberated attitude of her new friends becomes all the more evident when they come up with a plan to help the football team win the big game by kidnapping and raping everyone on the opposing team until they're too tired to even take the field.

The First and the Best Movie totally about cheerleaders
27 December 1999 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

I think this was the first movie theatrically released which was about real cheerleaders("Naughty Cheerleader" was about a drum majorette and the story had nothing to do with cheerleading).The girls did real cheerleading routines and a cheerleading coach was hired.The cheerleaders were, and still are, the cutest ever assembled.Somehow, you actually believe these girls would go the "extra mile" for their team to ensure their success!I also believe this is the movie that "Debbie Does Does Dallas", the best porno movie on cheerleading, was based because of the similarity of some character/actor names.If you can find this movie on videocassette, rent it!--you will be glad you did.
