Hooo wee, what a stinker!
carter-629 June 1999
Tina Yother's overcomes adversity to become the homeliest Laker Girl ever to trod the pine? YES! A pre-Baywatch Alexandra Paul as a rich girl who conceals her wealth for the love of the dance? ACES! Tag along for a season where the Lakers seemed to have dumped all their talent for a pack camera-friendly brooding white prettyboys! MONEY! This one has to be seen to be believed, folks! Tape it next time it seeps back onto the Lifetime channel and thank me later

Loved Laker Girls

First of all I really loved the movie when I first saw it on television. I have not seen it in a really long time. I would love to purchase a copy of it, but I don't know if it is a movie that can be purchased. I have only seen it on the Lifetime channel or the Lifetime Movie Network channel. If anyone knows how I can get a copy of it I would love to know. If I can not purchase a copy of it would there be any possibility of requesting that it be re-aired. The first time I watched the movie I wanted to be a cheerleader from that point on. I love the storyline of the movie. The audition process, camaraderie with all of the girls, and the drive that Tina Yothers character had to be a Laker Girl or at least work with them.

needing a paycheck
ph-man11 March 2010
I couldn't believe how awful this was the acting was poor at best everyone walked though their lines and was there to pickup a paycheck not believable at all and if you look none of them have acted since.What a waste of good film.Would have gave them a 0 but one is as low as it goes.God help us.The best part was the dancing at the end ,I hope no one was looking for a Oscar to be given for great acting or directing the raspberry award would be the only award to be given for this one.I wounder if a few friends get together and one says hey lets get together and waste a few weeks and get some spending money and sell this crappy film to someone would make a great movie for someone who's up at three in the morning and who can't sleep!!!

Not bad made for TV movie
zmoviefan18 May 2015
Warning: Spoilers
Only reason I bought DVD of this is because I am a huge Shari Shattuck fan. Who along with another gal: Lisa Ort end up being the most memorable. Shari for playing the sexy, scheming Laker girl and Lisa for playing the goofy girl who just wants to meet a nice dentist to marry and have 3 kids.

Alexandra Paul, Paris Vaughn and Tina Yothers are the 3 main girls though. And they do okay in their roles, but they all play nice characters so they get a bit boring to watch.

Movie could've benefited from some conflict or drama, maybe even a bit sexier numbers, but for a made-for-TV movie from 25 years ago, it isn't bad.
