Airheaded Diane captains the cheerleading squad, who follow her through whatever she does. Jack is, of course, the football team’s star quarterback. When Diane becomes pregnant, the two are thrown out of their homes and move into an apartment where they try to live on Jack’s part-time salary from clerking at a video store. Meanwhile both continue in school – cheerleading and quarterbacking. When Diane realizes that they’re not making it financially, she recruits the other cheerleaders to help her rob a bank. Their cheerleader oath of all for one commits them to helping her. A local hood gives them guns in exchange for their promise to put his homely daughter on the cheerleading squad.
Plot: When Jack and Diane find themselves in an unexpected adult situation, the A-Squad comes to their rescue. In order to help their friend Diane, the A-Squad goes where no cheerleader has gone before: taking on a little after-school project known as bank robbery. But the A-Squad does things their way — with sugar and spice — forever changing their friendship, their future and the nation’s notion of teen spirit.

Light-hearted dark comedy: I don’t think so
I had high expectations for this movie. I guess that they were a little too high, because this movie did not work. It started off great, being fast paced, biting, and just plain mean. Any movie where the parents of both the head cheerleader and the quarterback cheer about their marriage, but scream about their pregnancy…well, it can still suck.
The movie cared too much about its subjects. It had a heart for the cheerleaders (either that or it was the toning down after the shootings), and thus I didn’t feel that the point of the movie was to laugh at them, but to laugh with them. This is like American Pie, where we laugh with the characters. Except the humor that could have worked was aimed at them, thus making a conflict and making many jokes not funny. Also, the timing was off on alot of the jokes. “You want to dust my a**” should have been funny, but it wasn’t.
So, if you like the light-hearted dark comedy genre (of which there aren’t too many…none that I can think of off the top of my head), see this movie, otherwise, stay to the biting satire of Bring it On.
A Very Funny, Self-Aware Comedy
I love this movie and watch it every few months. The casting is perfect – Mena Suvari as Kansas and James Marsden as Jack are the standouts among an exceptional cast. This film is cheesy in the greatest way. I mean, it’s about a high school cheerleading squad robbing a bank to fund the cheer captain’s pregnancy! The characters are really well developed and are the driving force. They all have little aspects of them that make them unique and hilarious – I find Cleo’s obsession with Conan O’Brien to be particularly funny. The film is narrated by a very snarky and obviously jealous “B Squad” (junior varsity) cheerleader. They do a good job of juxtaposing what she says with what is actually happening, but the lines blur a little as you get farther into the story and you start to wonder what to believe. It truly does have surprising little twists and turns, but nothing overwhelming. This is a great movie to just relax and watch with your friends or in a bubble bath or something. Witty, memorable, and ultimately a story of the power of female friendship and a satire of high school politics and stereotypes.
