Definitely enjoyable, don't have high expectations
28 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was pretty skeptical about this movie, the previews when it was in theaters seemed repetitive so I didn't have much expectation for it and was actually surprised about how much I ended up enjoying it. I saw it with my boyfriend who was sure this was going to be more of a chick flick but he was laughing more than I was so it might be slightly more entertaining for guys.

The movie is about two high school jocks who decide they want to skip football camp in favor of a cheerleading camp. The idea started off as a joke, which was a relief because it would not have been as realistic and therefore not as entertaining. The movie, as it states, is in fact not a cheerleading movie for the most part. They do have some pretty good cheerleading routines at the end. It had some goofy moments that could have been toned down and would have been funnier. As someone stated before there were a lot of great one-liners that you didn't expect to be that funny. The changes in the 2 main characters are very believable, which seems like it would be hard to pull off in that situation, so that was refreshing. The music was very tastefully done and it was very funny to see how the guys viewed the world.

The actors playing the two guys are actually pretty good, had great facial expressions and funny reactions, they had great on-screen chemistry as best friends and went very well together. Their cheerleading teammates as a group were funny as well, though one of them seemed a little too out of place. The girl who plays the sister of one of the guys is extremely annoying and totally wrong for the part, her face never stopped scrunching up and her acting was pretty bad. The rival team is a bit extreme and looked like they were trying too hard to play the villains and their leader got way too much attention with few lines just because she is very hot. Other than that and a few unnecessary tidbits in the movie I had a good time watching it and recommend it to anyone with a light sense of humor.
