boring sequel

Ok the movie is boring and the idea that they can turn the random people from theatre and ballerinas into cheerleaders in a week in crazy. In more time they could have but the movie is way to fast and isn't put together well. There is a bunch of swearing in this movie I do not remember them saying the f word but they said almost everything or everything else I don't remember exactly how many times each word was said but they loved saying the h word and the b word. There is sexual innuendo but no actual sex, there are two locker scenes with some of the girls changing but the most shown is thier bras and thongs, some talk, some boys from the football team make fun of the boys on the cheerleader team by grabbing thier crotch, some kissing.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Don't let the fact that this movie went straight to video, or the fact that stars of the successful original don't appear in this one, deter you. Bring It On Again has loveable characters, a good moral, and some good fun that will make many teen girls, well, cheer.

While the kids are in college now, the movie seems best aimed at a younger set. Whittier and her boyfriend only kiss and hug; there's little cursing, and the moral is unfailingly positive -- follow your heart and don't forget why you compete. Is this message unique? Absolutely not. But Bring It On Again is still a worthy entry into the growing girls' coming-of-age genre.
