Two guys, Nick and Shawn decide a two week stint at a Cheerleaders' Camp is the perfect opportunity to score tons of meaningless romantic liaisons with lonely girls in tight-tops and short-short skirts. But their lusty plan to caress as many pom-poms as possible goes awry when one of the dudes fall in love.Written by
Julianna Guill plays a cheerleader here and she earlier played another cheerleader in the One Tree Hill episode Locked Hearts & Hand Grenades. Subsequent to Fired Up, Julianna guest starred in the Selfie finale I Woke Up Like This in which she played the old high school nemesis of Eliza Dooley played by Karen Gillan. Karen herself had also played a cheerleader in The Kevin Bishop Show & the Happy Idiot music video. See more »
When Shawn is depressed, Nick gets the idea to convince a group of cheerleaders to practice with them by swimming in the pond. During this exchange he also miscounts "Look at that, huh? We're all here thinking inside the box, and you're outside playing a little game of what if. Gorgeous and brilliant - the triple threat." See more »
You know what John Lennon always said.
No, I don't. I'm not in my fifties. I could ask my dad though.
Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.

Odd to say, but "great chemistry!"
Kudos to the casting agents for this one -- it's fun and lively and moves along steadily to the predictable happy ending, but along the way the dialogue is snappy, witty, and oddly believable. Why so? Hard to believe, but it was the great chemistry of the two bromantic leads! They play off each other perfectly, and because they're sharply versed with each other, it's instantly believable that they're also sharply-witted with others. It's rare to have the sex-hungry jock teens be intelligent too (smart jocks? Who'd buy that?), yet it works! I bought it, I laughed (a lot!) and I never reached a point where I thought the lead characters had stepped to a point of groan-ness. So kudos to the casting, and the lead actors themselves -- should the chance happen again, I'd gladly see another comedy with these two -- they make a good 'bro' pair.
