This is a comedy about two football players that join a cheerleading camp during the summer, because they will be the only two men amongst a bevy of beautiful girls. The high school jocks that share the lead in this movie are, Shawn Colfax (played by Eric Christian Olsen) and Nick Brady (played by Nicholas D'Agosto). They go to summer camp with the girls who are on the cheerleading squad. Not only do they get out of the rigors of summer football camp this way; they also hope to find themselves in the middle of hundreds of girls with no other guys in sight.

Nick gets interested Diora (played by Molly Sims). The only problem with this, is Diora is married to the coach of the camp. Shawn sees Carly (played by Sarah Roemer), and he falls for her. She is the team cheerleader captain and super hot. Carly is no dummy and it does not take her very long to discover the real reason why Shawn and Nick want to be on the cheerleading squad. Carly's boyfriend Rick (played by David Walton) rats them out. Rick tells Carly that Shawn and Nick are only on the team to get girls and they plan to quit the team before finals. Shawn and Nick no longer are welcome on the cheerleading team because of this.
Nick talks with Shawn. They discover to their surprise they both like being on the team for the right reasons. They both want to help their cheerleading team win the competition. Carly discovers that Rick is a two-faced lying son-of-a-gun. Rick is having an affair with the rival head cheerleader Gwyneth (played by Anna Lynne McCord). Nick and Shawn express true sincerity. They both return to the cheerleading team to help their team win. Carly helps Shawn with the routine. They are ready for the competition when they succeed in practice, with a stunt call the “Fountain of Troy.” This particular stunt is banned from the competition, because it is so difficult to achieve. However, the team goes for it anyway. Shawn over shoots the stunt, ends up doing a triple back flip instead of only a double as required. Shawn misses the landing, hits the water, but he has the strength to yell out “Tigers” for his team before he blacks out. The cheerleading squad does not win, but they do much better than the year before. Nick and Shawn are definitely a real part of the team now. Shawn and Carly seal it with a kiss.
Best part of story, including ending:
I like the conversion from the babe-seeking guys, to the guys being an important part of the cheerleading team, because this is cool.
Best scene in story:
The scene I like is when Shawn goes for the spectacular maneuver and misses but still yells “Tigers” before blacking out. It is very funny.
Opinion about the main character:
It is nice to see Shawn and Nick's progression from being complete jerks to more responsible guys.
