I was expecting a teen movie and was in fact very pleased to see very good acting, good directing, good filming and excellent lines ! If you like teen movies with 12 years old kind of jokes always link to pubes and excrement, do not watch Fired Up ! The acting is really good here and the lines are just so good, I found myself and my flatmates reusing them..
I actually watched this movie a second time and spotted things I did not even notice during the first viewing ! I mean the details and the number of characters with their very specific personality amazed me. This movie is rich and you will definitely think that it only lasted 30 minutes.
I read many comments comparing this movie to others but, I would say that in terms of "how good the lines are", I would compare it to Wedding Crasher, plus the main actors are really coordinated and it adds to the credibility of the movie.
It will definitely cheer you up and is the perfect movie to relax. Even the soundtrack is good and various.
