A transfer student to a rough high school tries joining the cheer-leading squad and she not only faces off against the head cheerleader, but against her former school in preparation for a cheer-off competition.
Vivica A. Fox makes her Bring It On debut as Cheer Goddess, the Internet's most popular "Cheer-lebrity." When Destiny (Prosperi), captain of three-time national champions "The Rebels," is challenged to a global cheer showdown by an edgy new team called "The Truth," the Cheer Goddess organizes a virtual battle for squads from all around the world. It seems like the whole world wants to take down Destiny and her team, and they just might succeed, unless Destiny can rise to the challenge, set her ego aside and figure out who her real friends are.
I really enjoyed the first two Bring It On movies, but the entirety of this stinker should have ended up on the cutting room floor. The choreography is meh, the acting is horrible, the characters have zero depth and the dialogue is cringe-worthy (apparently you can add "cheer" to any word and a guy will fall at your feet thinking your "made-up" words are just too adorable). The only semi-likable person is the blonde frenemy, and that's only because she was able to screw her face into an emotion other than shocked indignation at, not only being cheer-smacked from all corners of the world, but by her own teammates (oh the horror!). The youth trends this movie portrays is.. just... sad. Teens with their faces glued to their electronic devices (you could play a drinking game with how many times the horribly-acted lead character goes from phone to tablet to laptop, rinse, repeat), the excessive lifestyles (life without a Louis Vuitton bag is just no life at all, but hey there's a mansion in the hills with conveniently absent parents, that's a plus!); it's cool to be in an inter-racial relationship; oh and the hipster retro trend of vintage Mustang convertibles (what happened to promoting bio-diesel?)and even a 50's diner hangout ala Riverdale! News flash teens, retro is not "original" and neither is this must-NOT-see movie.
