Storyline

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 Joaquín Valle

Goofs

Sean makes the touchdown (he's wearing the # 17 jersey,) in the football scrimmage and appears on the right side of the base of the goal post. When Nick (# 10,) performs what appears to be a cartwheel round off into a back flip, you see Sean on Nick's right, (on the left side of the screen (if it's not mirrored - at least in the version of the film I'm seeing,)) which is left of the base on the goal post, but when Nick lands and chest bumps Sean, Sean is back on the right side of the base on the goal post. This may seem a little technical and confusing, but basically after the touchdown, Sean is on the right. Then in the next shot, he's on the left, then suddenly appears back on the right, as if he was always there. See more »

Definitely enjoyable, don't have high expectations
28 July 2009 | by apb216See all my reviews

I was pretty skeptical about this movie, the previews when it was in theaters seemed repetitive so I didn't have much expectation for it and was actually surprised about how much I ended up enjoying it. I saw it with my boyfriend who was sure this was going to be more of a chick flick but he was laughing more than I was so it might be slightly more entertaining for guys.

The movie is about two high school jocks who decide they want to skip football camp in favor of a cheerleading camp. The idea started off as a joke, which was a relief because it would not have been as realistic and therefore not as entertaining. The movie, as it states, is in fact not a cheerleading movie for the most part. They do have some pretty good cheerleading routines at the end. It had some goofy moments that could have been toned down and would have been funnier. As someone stated before there were a lot of great one-liners that you didn't expect to be that funny. The changes in the 2 main characters are very believable, which seems like it would be hard to pull off in that situation, so that was refreshing. The music was very tastefully done and it was very funny to see how the guys viewed the world.

The actors playing the two guys are actually pretty good, had great facial expressions and funny reactions, they had great on-screen chemistry as best friends and went very well together. Their cheerleading teammates as a group were funny as well, though one of them seemed a little too out of place. The girl who plays the sister of one of the guys is extremely annoying and totally wrong for the part, her face never stopped scrunching up and her acting was pretty bad. The rival team is a bit extreme and looked like they were trying too hard to play the villains and their leader got way too much attention with few lines just because she is very hot. Other than that and a few unnecessary tidbits in the movie I had a good time watching it and recommend it to anyone with a light sense of humor.
