Not enough pom poms
3 March 2018 | by VideoXploiterSee all my reviews

The titular females play second fiddle to the douche-bag males. The story mostly revolves around the guys trying to outdo one another. I use the term 'story' begrudgingly as there is very little of it. Rather, the movie is a sequence of gags, some funny, some eye-rollingly dumb. Coming back to the cheerleaders, they make up for their lack of overall presence with a bit of T&A towards the end. If you want some better cheerleader-exploitation check out the appropriately titled 'The Cheerleaders' from 1973.
