Trivia

Randall Dale Adams and David Harris saw this movie at a Dallas drive-in on November 28, 1976 - it was the second of a double header preceded by "The Student Body." Both mentioned their attendance in alibis while being investigated for the murder of Officer Robert W. Wood - Adams also said that he had to leave this movie before it was finished, as he didn't feel comfortable with its content.

not Jack Hill's best, nor his worst
23 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In order to get an expose, an aspiring reporter (Jo Johnston), joins the cheerleading squad only to learn not to pre-judge people. Of the 3 movies in Anchor Bay's Cheerleader set (the Cheerleaders, Revenge of the Cheerleaders, & the swinging Cheerleaders), this one feels most like a movie. Yea, nearly all the cheerleaders shed their clothes at one point or another, but there's a little helping of social commentary to go with the exploitation. It's a bit easy to see that this is a Jack Hill directed picture and it's better because of it.

My Grade: B-

DVD Extras: Commentary; 2 TV spots, Jack Hill Bio
