Storyline

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 Joaquín Valle

Not very memorable, but an entertaining juvenile comedy
7 May 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

In general, the juvenile comedy genre disappointed me very much in recent years, due to the crowd of unbearable pieces of crap straight-to-DVD (such as, for example, Cougar Club and Picture This), which almost extinguished my taste for this underrated genre.So, without being a great film, I liked Fired Up, because it does not fall on the easy scatological humor; and even though it relies on the old formula of "louts looking for sex", it uses a context and a development which are enough different in order to separate it from many cheap clones of American Pie which try to occupy the niche created by gems such as Clueless, Weird Science and Can't Hardly Wait.

In Fired Up, the technical aspects are correct, but they do not have too much creativity; the performances are barely functional; and director Will Gluck drives the movie with a good rhythm, but he does not show too much vision (a few interesting transitions are not enough to bring a visual identity to the movie).Fortunately, the screenplay from the movie comes to the rescue by creating entertaining situations which on some way conciliate the message of equality and tolerance the movie proposes.Finally, the characters are interesting and their dialogs are well written.

In summary, Fired Up may not be a highly memorable experience, but it kept me entertained and it made me laugh, and I think it deserves a recommendation because of that.
