A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
A nerdy valedictorian proclaims his love for the hottest and most popular girl in school - Beth Cooper - during his graduation speech. Much to his surprise, Beth shows up at his door that very night and decides to show him the best night of his life.
Two guys, Nick and Shawn decide a two week stint at a Cheerleaders' Camp is the perfect opportunity to score tons of meaningless romantic liaisons with lonely girls in tight-tops and short-short skirts. But their lusty plan to caress as many pom-poms as possible goes awry when one of the dudes fall in love. Written by
In an attempt to flirt with Diora, Nick makes up on the spot that her name is Italian for "beautiful princess." She rightfully shoots down this suggestion, as her name is actually French, and means "golden." See more »
When the bus first pulls into the cheer-leading camp, a big sign reads "Southeastern Illinois University." However, the garden beds are filled with masses of ornamental aloes, plants that are commonly used in California landscapes but that are unable to survive winters outdoors in any part of Illinois.

You take the cheerleading clips from Bring It On and the typical "let's get laid" plot from American Pie, you get Fired Up.
It starts off the same as a typical raunchy comedy about two jocks just trying to get laid as much as they can. When Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) and Shawn (Nicholas D'Agosto) decide to go to cheer camp instead of football camp, they find themselves with three hundred horny girls and their entire world turned-upside-down.
Shawn falls for Carly (Sarah Roemer; recognized from Disturbia) and Nick falls for Diora (Molly Sims), who is married to the leader of the camp. At the halfway point of the movie, the film turns over a new leaf, as well as Nick and Shawn, and becomes something more than your average teen comedy about sex and stupid jokes.
I laughed quite a bit more than I expected to when I saw the trailer for the movie. Bits shown in the trailer do not do the comedy of the film justice. It is so much more than just a comedy, as well, it's a warm tale that proves anyone can do anything if they just believe in themselves.
It's inspiring, laughable, fun and romantic all-in-one. Aside from some profanities and small nudity, it's for all audiences, I think.
