Melissa Joan Hart,
In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
Jack and Diane were lovers, two crazy kids living in the heartlands. Airheaded Diane captains the cheerleading squad, who follow her through whatever she does. Jack is, of course, the football team's star quarterback. When Diane becomes pregnant, the two are thrown out of their homes and move into an apartment where they try to live on Jack's part-time salary from clerking at a video store. Meanwhile both continue in school - cheerleading and quarterbacking. When Diane realizes that they're not making it financially, she recruits the other cheerleaders to help her rob a bank. Their cheerleader oath of all for one commits them to helping her. A local hood gives them guns in exchange for their promise to put his homely daughter on the cheerleading squad.Written by

The premiere of the movie was held in Minnesota, where the movie was filmed. The entire audience was given Betty Doll masks, like the ones the girls used to rob the bank in the movie. See more »

I'm DeeDee. You can remember me because of my double D's!
Honey, don't show them those!

And I'm Dianne's dad, Dennis. Now, don't try that after one of my screw-drivers.

What is a pregnant, teenage, High School cheerleader to do... ???
This is a smart movie about dumb people but don't let that get in the way of your enjoying it.
There are a lot of laugh-out-loud situations in this short (less than 90 minutes by my watch) film. The whole situation is laughable when the team captain of the `A-Squad' cheerleaders at Lincoln High School is pregnant and what she does to make the situation more livable.
James Marsden (Scott Summers/Cyclops in `X-Men') is the too-good-to-be-true boyfriend of Marley Shelton (Diane Weston in the film) whose innocence, sweetness and naivety makes you want to believe that there really are people like that in the real world.
Mena Suvari (late of both `American Beauty' and `American `Pie') is a study in contrasts as the girl that `was born in prison.'
There has been a spate of cheerleader movies this last year but this one owes much more to `But I'm A Cheerleader' than it does to `Bring It On.' There is a tension and sense of surrealism that isn't in `Bring It On.'
When all the cheer leaders don their `Betty' masks it becomes very surrealistic almost spooky.
There is no big opening to this film: just an introduction to the characters; but there is a nice end to the film explaining what happens to the major characters after the end of the film.
I enjoyed this film much more than I thought I would give it a chance you may enjoy it too.
