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 »

While of course its not Oscar material, this movie is just a blast to watch! I left the theater in a better mood then I was before I went in. In my opinion, that says a lot about a movie. If you are looking for a film to make you feel good and put a smile on your face, this is definitely a good pick.
The character Hayley brings a sarcastic form of humor that constantly keeps you laughing. The writing is sharp and sophisticated, much more entertaining than its predecessor "Bring It On". I would highly recommend this movie if you are looking for a good time, or need a break from the real world.
