Andrea "Andi" Carson (Alana Austin) is an average teenage girl. She's a cheerleader, she owns pillows shaped like flowers, paints her nails, and, oh, yeah, she can Motocross like nobody's business.
But what strikes me about this movie is not its plot (girl dresses like guy, big dramatic moment as the world finds out she tricked them all, then she gets the guy) but it's hidden message. Not only are girls capable of racing with the boys, but they can wear nail polish, skirts, and earrings, too! It's not evil to be feminine.
On a more shallow note, this cast is full of swoonworthy guys. Dean (Riley Smith), twin brother Andrew (Trevor O'Brien), li'l brother Jason (Scott Terra), evil French Renee Cartier, and the assorted racers hanging out on the track.
Yet, there are some really weird moments. The adults in this movie have the IQ of, say, Jello. Not to mention the big romantic scene--instead of a kiss, we get Andi and Dean's characters racing for Dean to become part of "Carson Racing".
Keep in mind, though, that when you see this movie, there are no surprises. But then again, my entire family saw the movie 4 times in one weekend: me, my sister, my cousin, my mother, and my aunt. It can hold anyone's attention!
