When they're hired to work at a cheerleading camp for the summer, two lusty college friends prepare for the most spirited three months of their lives. But the squad won't be ready for serious competition without some remedial training in sex appeal. Written by
Cheerleading squad go for all or bust with very little camp.
A teen comedy. From The Asylum. If anyone else saw American Virgin then they'll already know what to expect, a teen comedy bawdier than most but with a script that's not as sharp. #1 Cheerleader Camp is actually chock full of much more nudity than American Virgin so may prove to be even more popular among hormonal, male teens. Yeah, I thought it was okay too.
The plot is quite simple. Young Sophie (Erica Duke) really wants to win an annual cheerleading competition that could help her to get a scholarship but her nemesis, Britt (Harmony Blossom), keeps finding ways to break up her squad. Lucky for Sophie, a young lad working at the camp over the summer (Michael, played by Jay Gillespie) really likes her and thinks up a plan to get her a replacement squad . . . . . . . . . . made up of strippers. This pleases one of the other lads working at the camp over the summer, Andy (played by Seth Cassell). Andy is on a masturbation diet which means he has to "burn off" more calories than he has eaten by, you guessed it, a rigorous solo workout. And he's never had such great motivation. Oh, and a series of misunderstandings lead to everyone believing that Michael is gay.
From an opening credit sequence that features a number of topless women jumping up and down to the frequent appearance of . . . . . . topless women, it's obvious that this movie has been geared to the young male who finds his libido racing ahead of his confidence.
The acting is all actually fairly decent for this kind of thing, aiming as low as it does. Jay Gillespie and Erica Duke make a cute pair of leads, Seth Cassell is really quite funny though the script could have been tweaked to improve things somewhat and we get some decent support from the likes of Paul Logan, Deanne Meske and Charlene Tilton doing an on screen version of Charlene Tilton.
Naomi L. Selfman keeps everything in place in a script that holds no surprises but that throws enough moments of amusement amongst the vulgarity to provoke a few proper laughs. The ridiculously contrived moment when the character of Andy misunderstands a foreign-accented girl describing her love of chocolate covered peanuts led to a payoff that had me laughing almost as much as any of the American Pie set-pieces.
Mark Quod directs with a bit more competence than we usually see in an Asylum production. He keeps things moving, throws in plenty of nudity and light, fizzy tunes and keeps things on a par with the look of any other teen comedy of this type.
Everyone will think, as usual, that I'm being far too generous and I can see that point of view. I was originally going to mark the thing as 5/10 but then I realised that it works very well for what it sets out to be. Which is why it edges just above average.
