Our Score
Kirsten Dunst stars in this comedy set in the competitive arena of high-school cheerleading. Torrance Shipman (Dunst) takes over as leader of a crack San Diego high-school squad whose prowess is in stark contrast to the shambolic football team they support. Things don't go smoothly, culminating in the discovery that their winning routine was actually stolen from a rival squad. Dunst decides to break the rules by hiring a professional choreographer to put together a new routine. Will her plan succeed? Billed as Rocky with pom-poms, Peyton Reed's film could do with the sharp satirical edge of, say, Election. Instead, it ends up as a too-straightforward chronicle of a somewhat parochial pastime.

Summary

Successful high-school cheerleaders discover their popular dance moves were stolen from an inner-city rival by their ambitious former captain. The squad has to come up with a new routine quickly to salvage some pride and succeed at a forthcoming championships. Comedy, starring Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Jesse Bradford and Gabrielle Union.
