The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

This is a cheerleading movie. It has your bitchy cheerleaders. And yes, there is a plot behind the short skirts and dancing. Torrance Shipman (Dunst) is the new captain of the 5 time champion winning Rancho Carne Toros. They have some encounters with other bitchy cheerleading squads, and in all of this Torrance falls in love with new cheerleader, Missy's, brother Cliff (Bradford.) It's overall cute and fun to watch.
The review of this Movie prepared by Tanya Schulz

"I'm sexy, I'm cute, I'm popular to boot". Right from the start of the film you realise that this movie is going to be full of sassy and witty lines. The film focuses around the Rancho Carna Toros, a five time US champion Cheerleading squad from San Diego. This movie is filled with great lines and witty comebacks, on sexuality, school, and troubles that come with "the world of competive cheerleading".
The review of this Movie prepared by David Orr

Bring It On is a cheerleader flick. From it's opening sequence to the last shot, it is full of rude cheerleaders. But between the dancing and short skirts, there is a plot. Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst) is the new captain of the 5-time-championship winning Toros. Isis (Gabrielle Union) is the hard-edged captain of the inner-city cheerleadering squad the Clovers. The former captain of the Toros, rightfully nicknamed Big Red (Lindsay Sloane) has been stealing routines from the Clovers for years. Once the reigns are handed to Toros, a new member joins the squad. Tough-as-nails Missy Pantone (Eliza Dushku) shows her the error of Big Red's ways. Determined to make a squad not based on lies, she tries to reconstruct the routines. Missy's brother (Jesse Bradford) becomes her new "eye candy." The two antagaonists, Courtney and Whitney (Clare Kramer and Nicole Bilderback) offer cute little one-liners. "Let's not put the 'duh' in dumb." The two competing teams go to the championship together, and have an all-out cheerleading battle.

Although it isn't Oscar-worthy, it is a cute little film, for cheerleaders and normal people alike. Ian Roberts plays deceitful choreographer Sparky Polastri and delivers arguably the funniest line in the movie. "Cheerleaders are dancers..who have gone retarded."

This movie is basically about cheerleaders getting revenge. There's a group called the Toros and they think that their former captain stole all their routines from the Clovers.

Torance Shippman (Kirsten Dunst) becomes captin of the Rancho Carna Toros Cheerleading Squad. On her first day she has to choose a new member to join the squad. She chooses Missy. When they show the new girl the routine she tells them it's stolen from the East Compton Clovers. They make a new routine and come second, which is a first because they are five times national cheerleading champions. While all this going on Torrance has a boyfriend, Aaron, who goes to collage and doesnt see Torrance. Missy, the new cheerleader, has a brother, Cliff, who Torrnance now fancies. She dumps her boyfriend and finally at the Cheerleading championships she snags Cliff. So its your everyage teenage flick.
