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 »

Why am I looking at you? Speak!
Poppy, you're getting so big now! How old are you?
I'm 60. Can we get past the small talk? The only time you and my brother come to see me is when you need something. What? Tug mags? Mike's Hard Lemonade?

You take the cheerleading clips from Bring It On and the typical "let's get laid" plot from American Pie, you get Fired Up.
It starts off the same as a typical raunchy comedy about two jocks just trying to get laid as much as they can. When Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) and Shawn (Nicholas D'Agosto) decide to go to cheer camp instead of football camp, they find themselves with three hundred horny girls and their entire world turned-upside-down.
Shawn falls for Carly (Sarah Roemer; recognized from Disturbia) and Nick falls for Diora (Molly Sims), who is married to the leader of the camp. At the halfway point of the movie, the film turns over a new leaf, as well as Nick and Shawn, and becomes something more than your average teen comedy about sex and stupid jokes.
I laughed quite a bit more than I expected to when I saw the trailer for the movie. Bits shown in the trailer do not do the comedy of the film justice. It is so much more than just a comedy, as well, it's a warm tale that proves anyone can do anything if they just believe in themselves.
It's inspiring, laughable, fun and romantic all-in-one. Aside from some profanities and small nudity, it's for all audiences, I think.
