Storyline

Jack and Diane were lovers, two crazy kids living in the heartlands (Gee, and John Mellencamp didn't get any writing or soundtrack credits). Diane is the airheaded captain of the cheerleading squad, who follows her through whatever she does. Jack is, of course, the football team's star quarterback. Diane comes up pregnant and the two are thrown out of their homes. They move into an apartment, where they try to live on Jack's part-time salary as a clerk at a video store. Meanwhile both continue in school - cheerleading and quarterbacking. As Diane realizes that they are not making it financially, she recruits the other cheerleaders to help her rob a bank. Their cheerleader oath of all for one commits them to helping her. They get guns from a local hood, who gives them the weapons in exchange for putting his homely daughter on the cheerleading squad.

Trivia

The "illegal" dismount in the bank isn't really illegal. A cradle with 2 catchers from shoulder height does not require a separate head and shoulders spotter. Extended stunts (when the bases' arms are extended up over their heads) require the extra spotter. See more »

Goofs

When the girls are in the doctor's office for Diane's ultrasound, one of the girls starts moving the wand over Diane's belly, looking at the images on the screen. There is no conducting jelly on Diane, so there should be nothing showing up on the screen. See more »

Fun, entertaining and a total delight
9 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had been mildly anticipating seeing Sugar & Spice because I can appreciate the quirky, tongue-in-cheek teen comedies for what they are and have enjoyed a lot of them in the past. The plot with this one sounded hysterical and I like Marley Shelton, so I was ready to be entertained with this little flick.

I found Sugar & Spice to be an excellent and extremely amusing, enjoyable teen flick with edginess and sass. The material was not "rolling on the floor, laugh out loud" hilarious, but it was enough to where you get tons of continuous little chuckles and I always had a smile on my face, always. That's why I loved this movie so much. It was able to make me grin and laugh all the way through at such little things, such as the Betty masks and whole robbery ordeal, and little lines and scenes, tons of which are through out the entire film.

The performances were wonderful for their characters. Marla Sokoloff, Marley Shelton, Mena Suvari and James Marsden gave my favorite and most memorable performances of all, but everyone was memorable in their own, special way and I really just had an all out pleasurable experience with this joyous film and the joyous characters and essence it brings.

In the end, as I've said, I had an amazing blast with Sugar & Spice. It was fun, fresh and though it's not for everyone, it certainly was for me, because I saw it as much more than most would for it's eccentric and zany sense that was very different in ways from other films of it's caliber. If you can enjoy films like these for what they are, try on Sugar & Spice for it is really just non-stop delight from start to finish with lovable characters and a screwball, surreal plot. I enjoyed it greatly.
