Clearly a rip-off of Mean Girls

This film is nothing but a cheap straight to DVD rip off of Mean Girls. I mean I know that there were four similar films that preceded this but it isn't healthy for youngsters under 18 to watch. The reason why I say this is because there are five or six guys that are in a female cheerleading team and I personally think that children under the age of 6 should not be learning about sex educational themes until they are at an apporiate age of 18 or upwards. Parents, I advise you that this piece of poop is never watched by your youngsters and as a former cheerleader myself, I have to say that I did not enjoy this film as it pretends to be a comedy but secretly is a dirty and disgusting film. Bye xx

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (7 ):

BRING IT ON: FIGHT TO THE FINISH is predictable at best. However, the movie does keep the focus on its central themes of friendship, loyalty, and hard work without succumbing to the temptation to steep every scene in sexual innuendo, as some of its predecessors have done. The "Us vs. Them" contrast of the East. L.A. and Malibu kids is a bit heavy-handed at times, as are the racially-tinged barbs, but both serve the ultimate message that two disparate groups can find common ground and work together toward a common goal: winning the championship.

Fans of this franchise will mostly want to see it for the cheerleading, and they won't be disappointed, especially with the hip-hop and Latin-infused training scenes.
