Fired Up Review

Shawn Colfax and Nick Brady, the stars of the Gerald R. Ford High School football team, are dreading the prospect of another summer at football camp. After Nick hatches a scheme for the two to join their schools cheerleaders at cheer camp instead, they find themselves awash in a sea of gorgeous young women. The guys are having the time of their lives until Shawn falls for Carly, the beautiful head cheerleader who is very suspicious of their motives. To win Carly over, the boys must come up with some surprising new moves to prove Shawns intentions before the all-important cheer competition finals.


It’s a sad day when the best thing you can say about a comedy is that it’s not as bad as the __ Movie franchise, but that’s where we are with this limp entry into the ‘high schoolers getting laid’ genre. Here, they’re not even nerds; two footballers — both, like, supercute (read: smug bastards) — decide that they’d rather shag girls than endure their football camp, so go to cheerleading classes instead.

You can count on one hand the decent gags; the rest is down to either a low kill-rate during the scripting process or bad timing in the editing suite (they can’t even get the evil Purple Cobra-like rivals right), leaving a charmless, witless, lumbering mess.

Almost nothing could redeem this lame comedy.
