IMDb Plot Synopsis: After Diane Weston, the popular head cheerleader of Lincoln High School's A-squad, becomes pregnant by the star football quarterback Jack Bartlett, Diane and her four cheerleader teammates, Kansas, Cleo, Lucy, Hannah, as well as newcomer Fern, plan the perfect bank robbery to support her and Jack after their parents financially cut them off. But neither Diane nor her friends expect their bitter rival Lisa, the head cheerleader of Lincoln's B-squad, to suspect them with their plan.

A Quick Review: Seemingly a mash up of Bring It On and Point Break, this film could get a little weird at times but was oddly fun to watch. It was pretty dark and I’m not sure if some of the comedy was meant to be sarcastic or straight but ultimately it went darker and more peculiar by the scene and was an interesting watch. It doesn’t seem like it would be good but it was actually rather funny in places and with Mena Suvari from American Beauty the acting wasn’t that bad. It basically went places you wouldn’t normally expect from a high school flick and it was great fun to see!

Score: 7/10
