Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's some unsportsmanlike conduct and lots of skimpy outfits. Whittier breaks into the school pool after hours with a boy she barely knows. There's a gay male character, but the only kissing is between the main character and her boyfriend. The main characters have their integrity tested, but come through with flying colors. In other words, there's very little here to worry parents. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
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.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
