A newcomer to a Catholic prep high school falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft and they all soon conjure up various spells and curses against those who even slightly anger them.
Jack and Diane were lovers, two crazy kids living in the heartlands. Airheaded Diane captains the cheerleading squad, who follow her through whatever she does. Jack is, of course, the football team's star quarterback. When Diane becomes pregnant, the two are thrown out of their homes and move into an apartment where they try to live on Jack's part-time salary from clerking at a video store. Meanwhile both continue in school - cheerleading and quarterbacking. When Diane realizes that they're 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. A local hood gives them guns in exchange for their promise to put his homely daughter on the cheerleading squad. Written by

The characters having their weapons in flower boxes is possibly a reference either to Dog Day Afternoon with Al Pacino or to Terminator 2:The Judgement Day with Arnold Schwarzenegger. See more »

An entertaining comedy with Marley Shelton as the head cheerleader who gets pregnant with the star quarterback's child. Then, while watching that classic of modern cinema, "Point Break," on tv she hatches a plan that wouldn't it be great fun if her and her cheerleader buddies (including Mena Suvari) robbed a bank? Wouldn't that just help her with her financial problems? This is all very silly and the filmmakers wisely don't take any of this seriously, producing a very funny comedic take on cheerleading, high school and bad movies. GRADE: B+
