Megan is an all-American girl. She's a cheerleader and has a boyfriend, but she doesn't like kissing him very much, and she's pretty tactile with her cheerleader friends, and she only has pictures of girls up in her locker. Her parents and friends conclude that she *must* be gay and send her off to "sexual redirection" school, full of admittedly homosexual misfits, where she can learn how to be straight. Will Megan be turned around to successful heterosexuality, or will she succumb to her love for the beautiful Graham?Written by

The morning after Megan and Graham sleep together, everyone is looking down at Megan, who is lying in bed looking up. Between cuts Hilary's glasses disappear and reappear. See more »
Have you ever had a boyfriend?
Yes. For 2 years, we've been going steady. And I really love him. He's smart, and popular...
And he's got the biggest dick I've never seen.
Well, um, have you ever - had sex with him?
I'm a Christian.
It's really easy to be a prude when you're not attracted to him, isn't it?

The version that ran in theaters had the Lion's Gate logo, then the Fine Line logo, and then the credit: "Fine Line Features presents." This wasn't changed in time, as a deal with Fine Line and the film's production company fell through. On the DVD release the Lion's Gate logo appears and then there is a new credit: "Lion's Gate Films presents." No mention of Fine Line appears. See more »

A great and very misunderstood movie
So many people do not like this movie simply because they do not understand it. First of all, yes the movie is full of stereotypes, but that's the point. They're there to show how ridiculous these stereotypes really are and to show that in the end, you cannot change who you are, you just have to learn to accept it and get the people around you to accept you. Second, some stereotypes that I've heard people notice really weren't there. I don't think anywhere in the movie did they try to make Christians look stupid (hey, the homophobic Christians are pretty good at making themselves look stupid WITHOUT help). Okay maybe Megan's comment about "God is good, God is straight - hey that's pretty good," but still, I think sometimes people LOOK for something to be offended by. I think this movie does make fun of many straight people, who claim that gays are recruiting, when it is actually the other way around (as one can see by the existence of True Directions, and in the fact that when Megan asks them to teach her to be a lesbian, they tell her that they can't do that). All in all, this is a great movie and I really enjoyed it! As for people who didn't, hey, you're allowed to not like it, but if it is for reasons that really don't seem warranted, maybe you should give But I'm a Cheerleader another look.
