Mio Dzakula ...


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 Anonymous

The story line dictates that Hayley has been inactive in gymnastics for two years. Based on the results of her leaving Worlds, one would believe that walking out of the IG Classic would yield the same result, disqualification. Without an official result in a competition for two years, she is somehow qualified for the National Championships at the end of the film. However, USAG allows a gymnast to petition their way into a meet if they are for some reason unable to finish the qualifying meet. They use the score from the last FULL USAG Sanctioned meet that the gymnast competed in. See more »


Judge Westreich: You know, Haley, there are a lot of great people who have jerks for parents, we gotta stick together.

Hey, this wasn't that bad actually
3 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

OK Sure, we have all seen this plot line thousands of times before, a "bad" kid runs afoul of the law/parents/teachers blah blah blah. They have to go back and compete in the sport/competition that they were considered to be a natural in "You have more raw talent then I have even seen before." They make good on that promise and redeem themselves and yes everything is right with the world. OK I admit it, I like it every time I see it. We all root for the underdog, it's the freaking American way people!!! Go see this movie, it's entertaining, well shot and has a few laughs along the way to boot. I thought it was well done and easy to watch.
