Bring it On: In It to Win It

In an earlier post I picked Saw as the next franchise to reach a tenth installment. Changed my mind- Bring It On will reach that prestige long before. This is the fourth installment of the series, but with them being released straight to video, there's little slowing them down. I've seen the first and the third movies, and out of all of them, this has been the worst.

Believe it or not, the movie revolves around two rival cheer-leading squads, and a big cheer competition. This time, however, there is a romantic entanglement between Carson (Ashley Benson) leader of the Sharks, and Penn (Michael Copon) a member of the Jets. The Sharks and the Jets? Ugh. A curse befalls the two teams, and they are forced to work together and form a single squad- the Shets. I was really really hoping that the name was supposed to be a joke, but I don't think it was. Any sort of romantic conflict between the two warring families ends at this point.

The movie is filled with all sorts of delightful phrases such as "Cheer smack down," "Cheer-tastrophy," "Cheer rumble" (That scene was straight out of West Side Story), "Cheer-off," you want me to keep going? Thought not. Very little in this movie is even worth mentioning, except to say- if you like cheer-leading movies, go ahead and watch this. Most people, however, may get more enjoyment from my idea for a crossover between the two most over worked series out there. Bring It On: The Land Before Time.

1/5
