Haley Graham is a former gymnast-turned-juvenile delinquent who, after one too many run-ins with the law, is forced to enroll at an elite gymnastics academy, the VGA in Houston, Texas which is run by the legendary Olympic gymnast Burt Vickerman. But the rebellious Haley is not welcomed into the academy by the other teenage gymnasts who despise her for walking out on her Junior Olympic team years earlier during a competition which cost them the gold medal. But Haley is not a docile person either and makes every effort to provoke conflicts with the other girls. Vickerman takes it upon himself to coach Haley in his own way to make her regain her self respect for the VGA's coming spot on the Gymnastic Nationals. Written by

When Haley scratches on vault, Anthem Part Two by Blink 182 starts playing. The word "f*ck" is not silenced the first time the chorus is played, but in the second verse and second chorus, it is silenced. (This is because the movie is rated PG-13, and the MPAA permits only one use of a sexually-derived expletive before the rating must be changed to R.) See more »

Stick It hits a solid landing in the narrative-driven, juvenile female drama of gymnastics with a nice unusual twist with a message. This gymnastics movie has more interesting behind the scenes looks at this sport bringing both educational and entertainment value not typically experienced in sports movies. The acting is good, the comic value fun, the drama decent. This is good summer, female movie with sensitivity and improves on its predecessors like The Cutting Edge. While not a serious drama, this family movie brings with it a nice balance of family values, rebellious teen coming of age movie, and light humor that maintains an edge. Eight out of Ten Stars.
