Storyline

Andie Bradley is a gymnast with big dreams for the Olympics. When offered to work with one of the leading coaches in the U.S., she gratefully accepts. When she gets to the gym, she is scrutinized by the coach about her weight and feels the pressure to lose the pounds. At first it's just dieting, but when she meets a fellow team member, Leslie, she realizes there are ways around it. It's possible to eat what you want, but not gain a pound.

Ugh...
10 September 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I was forced to watch this film at school. Next time, she can give me a big fat F but I refuse to watch anything this horrible. Basiclly, its your typical "based on a true story" TV movie- the true parts are made as small as possible and the rest as filled with melodrama. The acting isn't bad, but the directing is- he basiclly directed his actors to be as exagerated as possible in their emotions. Also, the film is SO predictable- I am not exagerating when I say that after only watching the film for 5 miniutes, I correctly predicted every "plot twist" that was going to happen. And its just basiclly a soap opera- you feel nothing for the charecters because they are in NO WAY REAL, they look just like actors doing a TV movie, not like real people. The script is as cliche as you can get- they play it safe, take no chances, stick to the typical TV movie formula.
