Set in and around a small town high school in Kansas, Beth is a naive senior student who asks her two new friends, the slick and outgoing Julie, and her boyfriend Scott to help her cover up the accidental killing of the hated school principal. But they are observed by Terra, a student nominated for prom queen, who blackmails them into rigging the election in her favor. Undaunted, Beth, Julie and Scott turn to the most popular/hated student Cherry to kill Terra for them. Cherry agrees to the hit, but only if she gets Terra's nomination for prom queen and the crown as well which sets off more complications for all involved. Written by
Not a poor man's "Heathers" ..... it is just poor ..................
Disillusioned student stereotypes take matters into their own hands, kidnapping and killing follow. The question has to be, who would care about such weak characters, where one is just as unlikable as the other? Add to this apathy, annoying hand held cameras, a soundtrack that sounds no better than a child's tom tom, and a script that appears to have been made up as it went along. The acting by all concerned, could not even be described as amateurish, but simply bad. All violence occurs off screen, only adding to the ineptitude on display. "Pep Squad" should not be considered in the same sentence with a great black comedy like "Heathers". This is not a poor man's "Heathers" ,it is just poor. - MERK
