Storyline

Unpopular band geek Tuba is on her quest to earn a coveted spot on the high school cheerleading team. Concerned that his socially awkward sister is about to become the laughing stock of the entire school, Tuba's football-playing brother recruits his popular girlfriend Andi - a star cheerleader - to teach his sister the secret of whipping up school spirit. Somewhere along the way, the ambitious misfit and her popular mentor start seeing eye to eye, and realize that they have much more in common than they ever could have imagined. Written by Anonymous

last act drags a little
7 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tuba (Cyrina Fiallo) has always wanted to be a cheerleader. She is an anonymous band geek playing the tuba. Her best friend is sarcastic Emerson (Stacey Farber). Her brother Marshall (Brett Dier) is the star basketball player. His girlfriend Andi (Rachel Skarsten) is the arrogant head cheerleader. When a cheerleader gets hurt, Tuba signs up to try out for the squad. Marshall fears family embarrassment. Andi hopes to drive her away by training and pushing the uncoordinated Tuba over the edge. They end up finding common ground. Second in command Tiffany (Ashley Leggat) tries to take over the squad.

This is standard high school drama with a couple of differences. The head cheerleader actually has a heart of gold deep inside, very deep inside. Her turn is really the major saving grace and something different from the usual trope. On the other hand, there are some awkward turns. The lead girl Cyrina has the dorky look but she doesn't really outshine as needed. The cheerleader competition drags on a little too long and it ends up slowing down the final act. This has some merits and it's a close call.
