Storyline

A four-member teen girl group named the Cheetah Girls go to a Manhattan high school for the performing arts and try to become the first freshmen to win the talent show in the school's history. During the talent show auditions, they meet a big-time producer named Jackal Johnson, who tries to make the group into superstars, but the girls run into many problems. Galleria becomes a full-time snob and forgets her friends, Dorinda has to choose between her friends or the dance club and other things that could break the Cheetah Girls apart permanently.

The Cheetah Girls, 3.8?! -- Possible Spoilers If You Haven't Seen it --
2 August 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Okay. Seriously? 3.8?

I get it. The acting wasn't something to give an award for. Perhaps it's cheesy and you think that only 6 yr old girls will like it and the music. Nope. I'm a grown ass man and I still love this movie. My niece, who is only a year younger, also loves it. Hell, my mom doesn't mind it either. She's 53.

I've seen people say "Oh, all the girls were selfish-- they wanted fame and--" etc blah blah. Since when is it selfish to pursue your dreams? They wanted to get their music out there. And Galleria was selfish for not wanting to bend to Jackal's will? She didn't want the Cheetah Girls to become what someone else would want. What they didn't envision.

The other girls saw the ere of it as well, after thinking about it. It came down to 'The image Jackal wanted the Cheetah Girls to be, or their family The Cheetah Girls'. In the end Galleria, torn by losing her best friends, she was the one to make the first move to try and repair their friendships.

Yes. There were some errors. But guess what? It was a TV MOVIE. Not something made in Warner Brothers Studio. It was something made by Disney Channel for whoever watches their channel. It was one of the last vestiges of the old Disney channel before Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez took over with their bullshit shows. Is Cheetah Girls a teen movie as well? Yes. But it was more like Lizzie McGuire than like Hannah Montana.

Was it the best movie from Disney of all time? Of course not. But it's entertaining, the music is good and in the end the girls learned their friendship was more important than bending to the will of the big company manager. They said they'd do it their own way. Is it selfish to follow your dream the way you wanted it? No.

It's not something that I'd give a five star review to. But I can remember watching this and some of the 'morals' other people thought was being sent out, I didn't see. I saw the morals that your friends are more important than your fame. You should follow your dream and be happy. That you shouldn't let others tell you how your dream is to be lived.

All in all, I love it for the nostalgia mostly, but also because it was a great time before Disney started shoving this bullshit called Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana down our throats. High School Musical and everything else on Disney Channel these days needs to be chucked off a bridge and they need to bring back the old shows. Put Zenon on! Some Even Stevens and Lizzie McGuire, That's So Raven, or hell, just show the old Disney movies like Lion King!

Anything but what we have today.

I know many of you aren't going to like this review. Either way, I don't care. I had to give my opinion and I had to show my love for old Disney before they started killing it. The ratings must be horrible.
