Melissa Joan Hart,
A high school senior's girlfriend breaks up with him. His friends try to make him think of something else. His friend's sister Kelly helps him with the school musical. Spending time with Kelly has an effect.
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 characters having their weapons in flower boxes is possibly a reference either to Dog Day Afternoon with Al Pacino or to Terminator 2:The Judgement Day with Arnold Schwarzenegger. See more »
When the girls are in the doctor's office for Diane's ultrasound, one of the girls starts moving the wand over Diane's belly, looking at the images on the screen. There is no conducting jelly on Diane, so there should be nothing showing up on the screen. See more »

The initial idea of this movie (bank robbing cheerleaders) seemed funny to me when it came out but it then received mostly bad reviews so I decided to wait for cable. I finally saw it today and was surprised how smartly written the film was. Instead of making a film with a bunch of dumb blonde stereotypes the screenplay reverses the traditional roles of males and females and the result is sharply satiric.
My one criticism would be with the curious way that every character who has a Southern dialect in the film (which doesn't however appear to discernably take place in the South) is portrayed as either violent, dim, unwashed or all of the above. Why trade destroying one stereotype only to promote another? Overall, though, pretty clever and big props for focusing heavily on one of the most witty human beings to ever walk the earth: Mr. Conan O' Brien! . 6/10
