Deplorable Acting, Weak plot, Low Budget
18 May 2019 | by hustlerlSee all my reviews

I have to say I'm very disappointed not longer than 5 mins into this movie I was already regretting it. The actors were flat detached basically waiting for each other to deliver their lines a my turn your turn result. Plot did not pay attention to detail with gaps in the facts 1 min she's not missing cher camp the next she's spending 5 weeks at a ranch, 5 cheerleading spots available yet only 4 tryouts were selected simple things that add to convincing viewers of the story. Showed little to no effort by writers, directors & by extension actors. No background music which gave it more of a high-school stage play vibe. Madeline Carroll did her best but had absolutely nothing to work with or feed off. Acceptable for kids 10 & under couldn't make it through.
