I love this movie! So much fun, teen classic for sure!
Bring It On is fluff, but it's iconic fluff that inspired more fluff - its own lesser sequels and the Pitch Perfect series, for example), and it actually does a number of things right. Most notably, it's not a clichéd underdog story, but about reigning champions going up against the worthy underdogs, and thanks to a changing of the guard, the finale will actually pit underdog against underdog, and I think the audience would be happy with either result. The movie is also aware of White Messiah tropes and denies its characters that option. The dialogue's not bad, the comedy works, and the main quartet of stars are attractive and watchable (I mean, they have a cool vampire slayer chick who knows what's what). Where I have problems is in the way they shoot the cheerleading choreography. It all kind of looks the same to me, and changing angles on large groups means they sometimes look haphazard and rather unimpressive. This movie needed to watch more grand musicals. So it never actually gets better than the opening number for me, because at least that had humor.
Great film. Really love this one.
