Trivia

The music on the soundtrack of The Pom Pom Girls was, in fact, originally a 20th Century Records self-titled 1975 album by the group Cotton, Lloyd & Christian. Copies of that album that were returned to 20th Century were repackaged and redistributed in 1976 upon release of the film. On most copies, the Pom Pom Girls title appeared on the album jacket but not on the record's label. See more »

Definitely worth a watch
8 November 2002 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

"The Pom Pom Girls" is more about the two guys on the football team (one being the great Robert Carradine, always a blast to watch) and the antics they lead the girls into, whether it's making out, stealing a fire truck, causing grief for the rival school, and other assorted tomfoolery. Unlike many other movies of the type, this one is actually interesting and fun to watch, and even the cheesy early 70's music they chose for the movie is decent and adds to the atmosphere. And the girls are rather pretty as well. And for car lovers there's a lot of cool old cars to see, especially Carradine's '55 Chevy (there always seems to be a '55 Chevy in so many of these films). Definitely a good showcase of when life was more carefree and a lot less complicated. Nice to even have it on DVD, although a widescreen release would have been better than fullscreen.
