Tries to Be Campy But Fails

Attack of the 50 Ft. Cheerleader (2012)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Lame take-off on ATTACK OF THE 50 FT. WOMAN has scientist and average looking Cassie Stratford (Jena Sims) taking an experimental drug that turns her into a beauty. At first the drug is great because she looks good, makes the cheerleading squad and is popular but soon she sees the side effect in that she can't stop growing. You know, I've always wondered why some bad movies turn into cult classics that are fun to watch while others are just downright bad. It seems movies from the golden age of "so bad they're good" films just happened by chance. Moving like the original ATTACK OF THE 50 FT. WOMAN or ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES just got lucky when they became entertaining. I really do think that if you set out to make a camp film then you always fail and here's the perfect example. It really seems like everyone thought they could just make fun of the set-up and everything would fall into place but that doesn't happen. This is a pretty lame film from producer Roger Corman who thankfully makes a cameo with John Landis, which turns out to be the most memorable moment in the film. As you'd expect, there's all sorts of cute girls getting naked but there's very little outside of this. The entire story is pretty stupid, there's no laughs to be had and there's really just nothing going on here that makes you care about anything. It's overly stupid in a bad way and this is where the film tries to be camp but it just doesn't work. I thought Sims was good in her role but one wishes she had something better to work with. Fans of Sean Young might want to check out her few scenes but she doesn't get too much to do. ATTACK OF THE 50 FT. CHEERLEADER is far from a fun movie, which is a real shame.
