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.
