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.

The premiere of the movie was held in Minnesota, where the movie was filmed. The entire audience was given Betty Doll masks, like the ones the girls used to rob the bank in the movie. See more »

Sugar And Spice wasn't released at any cinemas over here in the UK. I have no idea why. I mean, if bigger flop movies like Say It Isn't So and Josie And The Pussycats (-Was only released in a couple of cinemas though.) were released here than why not Sugar And Spice. Anyway, it was out to buy on DVD over here on Monday, so I brought it straight away. (The DVD contains no extras, just the movie trailer.)
Sugar And Spice a was comedy movie mixed with crime. It was NOTHING like cheerleading flick, Bring It On though. Yes, Sugar And Spice was about cheerleaders and there was the odd cheer at the high-school but that's it.
Now, Sugar And Spice, is about a group of high school cheerleaders, who are all the best of friends, and they would do anything for each-other. When one of them becomes pregnant with the star quarterback's child, she finds herself in need of some desperate cash, so with the help of her friends, they coy up a plan, to rob a bank, so she can get the money she needs.
The cast which includes the likes of, Marla Sokoloff, Marley Shelton, Mena Suvari and James Marsden are all quite good here.
The movie itself was interesting, but it could of been a little better. And, at only 78 minutes long, the movie definitely could of been a bit longer. Sugar And Spice was still a good movie, and if you're into teen movies, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this one. I give Sugar And Spice a 7/10.
