Haley Graham is a gymnastic girl who was in gymnastic sport from childhood. But in the world competition she suffers a failure: she couldn’t do her main trick and that is why she leaves competition in the middle. Moreover, she leaves a gymnastic to feel how teenagers are living. Since Haley desert a gymnastic her life changes.
In her “new” life she meets the guys and become boyish girl. Haley likes to ride on BMX and have fun with two best friends. Often she fall into different situations and because of it sits in the police office, waiting when her father will come.
Once, she broke the window on the undeveloped house, and as a result she’s sitting in front of judge. Girl has a choice – go to the Vickerman gymnastic academy or a prison. She picks prison, but judge send her to the academy.
There she becomes lazy and does not want do anything, so she does a strike for her liberation. But the coach proposes her to go on the world competition again, win, take money, and go out from her “prison”. Haley agrees and does her best as she can. On the competition judges were not fair fix the price of her friend and Haley and her friends becoming on strike again, but now she and all of the gymnastics are controlling the match. At the end, every of the gymnastics won her price for her own program.
For final scene of competitions creators of film invite tens known gymnastics of the world. Main coach was a sportsman, twice Olympic champion Bart Conner. For three months before the film starts, four of main characters took practice with him. Girls had practice 5-8 hours a day. In Front of the coach was an aim – to make girl be average level of the sport training. Practices were during the film starts.
This film is not only about sport, it is also about victories and loses, friendship and teen’s life. If you understand gymnastic you will interested to look on girls tricks. Also film has good and bad emotions. You will laugh and cry, be worry and be glad.
I like this film; it is interesting to look for a one time. The music is great tidy to actions. Characters of the film had played very well. Missy Peregrym had played her role of hooligan-girl very exactly and naturally.
But this film will be more interesting for children, than for adults. Because it has many “problems” which children will understand better, than adults which already grown up and forgot a childhood.
