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.

Hold The Cheese...
15 October 2002 | by (The Florida Keys) – See all my reviews

... and you got no movie, here. But wait!! Don't leave, yet. What the hell's wrong with cheese... -Albeit, once in a while. Stay with me here. I love fries with cheese. Hot dogs with cheese. Pizza... you guessed it. Hamburgers. Mac-n-Cheez. 'Nuff said, there, I think. The point: cheese is good, though overindulgence could cause health problems. But, everyone should watch this film, at least once.

What worked: In a word: CUTE! I don't think I've seen a cuter movie out there. Definately, never more lovable, laughable and NICE!! bank robbers; not even in the movie 'Bandits'. Again, you owe it to yourself to see this movie; if just once, since you don't want to over do it on your cheese intake. Even if it is so yummy.

What didn't work: Well, nothing that wasn't planned to be lame. Though, it might have used more of an element of suspense or danger. The minor plot twist was a bit -blah-.

8/10 - I kept going between 6 and 8 out of 10. The plot didn't have a lot of depth, but I stuck with 8 because I enjoyed it, in spite of myself and I don't think the writer really intended for you to be on the edge of your seat. Key word here: FUN!!

thank you
