Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sunny, happy Torrance (Kirsten Dunst) is the new leader of the Toros, the cheerleading squad of Rancho Carne, an affluent San Diego high school that has lousy football players but one hell of a cheerleading team. National champions, they're the ones who bring in the bodies to the football games with their award-winning moves and sassy grace, and they're poised to take their sixth national cheer title. Torrance's new reign as cheer queen, though, is cut short when she discovers that her snotty, duplicitous forerunner was regularly stealing routines from the East Compton Clovers, the hip-hop influenced cheerleaders of a poor inner city school, and passing them off as the original work of the Toros. Scrambling to come up with a new routine for the Toros--and do the right thing by giving the Clovers their due--Torrance butts heads with the proud and understandably wary Isis (Gabrielle Union), the leader of the Clovers, who wants nothing to do with a rich blond white girl, but does want to get her squad to the championships. Problem is, only one team can take home the national title. Who's it gonna be?

An unexpected box-office hit in the late summer of 2000, Bring It On is a smart, snappy teen comedy that bristles with good cheer (literally) and lively, down-to-earth characters. The story may be fairly predictable (who's going to win the big championship?), but director Peyton Reed and screenwriter Jessica Bendinger have fleshed out their characters with formidable strength and provided them with sharp dialogue. Dunst is a radiant comedian, projecting warmth, determination, sincerity, and a sublime airheadedness, and Union is an impressive dancer and counterpart to Dunst, matching her admirably despite her limited onscreen time. An excellent young supporting cast rounds out the film, most notably Eliza Dushku (Faith of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jesse Bradford (Steven Soderbergh's King of the Hill) as siblings new to Rancho Carne, who become Torrance's best friend and potential new boyfriend, respectively. All in all, a pleasantly surprising and intelligent teen movie. Don't miss the opening sequence, a hilarious send-up of all those high school cheerleading routines you had to sit through at boring pep rallies. --Mark Englehart

4.0 out of 5 stars A good comedy for young girls April 5 2013
By Lysanne
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I discovered this movie when I was like 14 years old. I really liked it. It's a fresh comedy with great dances. It's not the movie of the year, but it's enjoyable. 12 to 17 years old is the best to appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the Dancing Girls! July 11 2001
Format:VHS Tape
If there's one thing I like it's a movie with girls who dance! My wife leaves the room, sighing heavily, and I settle into the la-z-boy for the duration. But, you know, I found that Bring it On addresses some serious issues too, in addition to some totally visually stimulating dance scenes involving pom poms and other rah-rah stuff. There are some race issues that every race-conscious American ought to think about seriously. Some issues about being an American that Americans could profitably consider. There are some revelations about just being a girl that girls ought to think about. If you're a race conscious American girl you ought to rush to see this flick. I thought it was great. And the cheerleading scenes just blew my ever-lovin' mind. Yowza!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dear J. S. Mason - June 17 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I very much respect your reviews and find them full of insight. In fact, I base about ninety percent of my movie selections on your recommendations and consider you a sort of blind, architecturally-inclined, and still-alive Gene Siskel. However, in the future, I would appreciate it if you would please indicate when your reviews are based upon the *braille* edition of a product.
After reading your review of "Bring It On," I rushed right out to my local NetFlix branch to rent this film. You can imagine my surprise when instead of a lush parade of leggy cheerleaders, I found myself watching a film about the hardships of life on a 1920s Georgia chain gang. While there was an abundance of nudity and while the story of the doomed love between Warden Mitchell and Clubfoot Jim was quite moving, overall the film was just not my cup of tea.
I haven't been so disappointed by your advice since your callous review of Adrian Lyne's heartbreaking large-print adaptation of Nabokov's "Joelita."

5.0 out of 5 stars title says it all= BRING IT ON! May 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
FAB! IT HAS EVERYTHING ANY TEENAGER INTO COOL DANCE ROUTINES, BITCHY + COMPETIVE PLOTS + WITTY SCENES WOULD WANT.
SUCH A GREAT FILM WHERE THE DANCE ROUTINES JUST MAKE U THINK THE WHOLE BORING "WAVING YOUR POM-POMS" CONCEPT OF CHEERLEADING OVER AGAIN. THE FILMS NOT THAT LONG EITHER, WHICH IS AN ADVANTAGE AS IN MANY "TEENAGE" FILMS AFTER ABOUT 2 HOURS YOU DONT SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT AS INTEREST AS U DID WEN IT STARTED!
BRING IT ON ALSO GIVES OUT A COOL MESSAGE THAT IF U KEEP WORKIN AT SUMTHIN EVENTUALLY ULL GET IT WHICH SEEMS 2 BE A LOT MORE EASIER TO BELIVE IN THE FILM THEN WHEN OUR PARENTS TELL US!
bUT IF DANCIN AND TENNAGE ISSUE
OVERALL A COOL TEENAGE FILM WHERE ULL FIND YOURSELF PLAYIN PLAYBACK TO THE END DANCE ROUTINES!
