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.

Entertaining but unrealistic
20 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie was great for a Sunday afternoon cheesy Lifetime movie, but a few things in it were so unrealistic that it just about drove me crazy.

My biggest complaint was that the gymnastics that these girls were shown doing were nowhere near the olympic level, which they claimed to be. The vaults were especially ridiculous. I mean, I did some of those vaults when I was ten years old, and I wasn't anywhere near olympic level (I was level 6, elite is level 10).

Also, Amy Jo Johnson's character's eating disorder just sort of suddenly went away when she realized it was harming her. A more realistic eating disorder movie is Sharing The Secret.
