After a run-in with the law, Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) is forced to return to the world from which she fled some years ago. Enrolled in an elite gymnastics program run by the legendary Burt Vickerman (Jeff Bridges), Haley's rebellious attitude gives way to something that just might be called team spirit.
Haley Graham is a former gymnast-turned-juvenile delinquent who, after one too many run-ins with the law, is forced to enroll at an elite gymnastics academy, the VGA in Houston, Texas which is run by the legendary Olympic gymnast Burt Vickerman. But the rebellious Haley is not welcomed into the academy by the other teenage gymnasts who despise her for walking out on her Junior Olympic team years earlier during a competition which cost them the gold medal. But Haley is not a docile person either and makes every effort to provoke conflicts with the other girls. Vickerman takes it upon himself to coach Haley in his own way to make her regain her self respect for the VGA's coming spot on the Gymnastic Nationals.Written by
When Wei Wei is listening to her iPod in the competition you can clearly see that she is listening to an iPod mini. And when she goes to do her routine they zoom in on the iPod showing the song playing, and it has a picture of the album, and the quality of the graphic is different than that of the iPod mini, showing that the zoomed in on a different iPod.

Yeah, um, you've got a lot of people going to the Olympics. Just curious, what country will they be representing? The state of delusion?

The UK release was cut, the distributor chose to remove a partial use of strong language ("Motherf....") in order to obtain a PG classification. An uncut 12A classification was available. See more »
Didn't know what to expect from this movie, the movie surprised me a lot. The first bit was slow and I thought it was going to be a bad movie but it really picked up and made me go "Whoa" I really enjoyed the acting of Missy Peregrym(Hailey), she really deserves to get more parts and I hope to see her in many future movies. None of the other actors really stood out, except for her.
The gymnastics were so good, and so well coordinated, you have to give kudos to the girls in the movie for doing all that. Pretty much every time I was amazed that they can do that, and I wonder what other people can do like that. Just spectacular.
