Storyline

The Toro cheerleading squad from Rancho Carne High School in San Diego has got spirit, spunk, sass and a killer routine that's sure to land them the national championship trophy for the sixth year in a row. But for newly-elected team captain Torrance, the Toros' road to total cheer glory takes a shady turn when she discovers that their perfectly-choreographed routines were in fact stolen from the Clovers, a hip-hop squad from East Compton, by the Toro's former captain. While the Toros scramble to come up with a new routine, the Clovers, led by squad captain Isis have their own problems - coming up with enough money to cover their travel expenses to the championships. With time running out and the pressure mounting, both captains drive their squads to the point of exhaustion: Torrance, hell bent on saving the Toros' reputation, and Isis more determined than ever to see that the Clovers finally get the recognition that they deserve. But only one team can bring home the title, so may the... Written by <BriRyeMuls@aol.com>

Trivia

Many of the stunts performed by the teams in the national competition, including all stunts more than two bodies high, the fly-overs, and the basket-tosses with head-over-heels rotation, are illegal at the high school level according to the National Federation Interscholastic Spirit Association.

Goofs

Whenever Cliff appears on screen, in some shots, he appears to have a tattoo of a roman numeral on his upper left bicep. In the scene where Missy is practicing her cheers in their living room and Cliff walks in and makes fun of her, his 'tattoo' is severely faded and almost completely washed off from his skin. However, in the final scenes in the movie, during the shot of Cliff in the crowd rocking out to the Toros' routine at Nationals, Cliff's arm is raised and his tattoo is once again visible and freshly filled in. It *is* possible that Cliff could have just liked to draw fake tattoos on his body like his sister did in the audition scene, but being as the film takes place over a several month period, the odds of him continually drawing the same tattoo in the same spot is highly unlikely.

A Terrific Movie For Teens of All Ages
6 September 2000 | by (Quincy, MA, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed "Bring It On". The film's brisk pacing was perfectly suited to its theme, thanks to director Peyton Reed, the writing smart, sharp, and consistently and authentically funny,(as well as, at times, genuinely thought-provoking)thanks to writer Jessica Bendinger, and the acting solid all around. I also liked "Bring It On" for what it didn't have-alot of tired, cliched boy-girl relationship stuff, and/or gratuitous sex/nudity. The opening dream/cheer sequence was a moment of sheer, brilliant comic/satiric movie magic, and later, when the professional choreographer shows up to help the Toros out, he almost steals the show. But what impressed me, perhaps, most of all about "Bring It On" was the wonderful chemistry between the two beautiful-and talented-young female leads, Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku.
