I've watched probably ALL of the Lifetime network cheerleader genre movies, this one is a *slight* standout among most. Deliciously aweful teen angst amidst the popular beautiful jock in-crowd, wrapped in a 'whodunnit' twist (that surprisingly took me a little longer than usual to figure out!)
Acting from this relatively young, green cast is pretty good, B+/A-, plot twist was not 100% predictable, and the overall production was one of the better among the LMN cookie cutter teen cheer genre. I regard these movies as Junkfood - no oscar winning performances, but entertaining to poke fun & giggle at!
my only real criticism is that there's not enough actual CHEER scenes in this (as it IS a cheerleader oriented movie!), but there are a couple of 'standard' LMN scenes where we get to hear Lifetime's standard cheer soundtrack music.. also, my guess is they're reusing the same couple of actual real athletes (flyers, tumblers etc) in any real cheering scenes as in all other recent LMN cheer movies.. it's a theory haha. :)
Overall, I'd give it a B+ grade. have fun binging it along with all your other cheer-faves!
