Nothing new to rah-rah about, but cheer fans will watch it.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that the fifth installment in the Bring It On cheerleading comedy franchise covers much the same territory as its predecessors, with the sexual content toned way down. There is some mild sexual innuendo, and some naming of body parts (tetas) in Spanish. Most of the sexual messages are served up along racial and class stereotypes: The East L.A. teens are sultry, street-wise vixens, while the squeaky-clean Malibu kids are either earnest naifs or elitist snobs. But there's nothing overtly offensive, and movie's central messages of friendship, loyalty, and dedication make it a palatable, if not original, diversion.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about stereotypes. Are they ever accurate, and if so, does it matter? How can differences be overcome?
  • What do kids face when they move to a new school?
  • What makes a family? There are several "families" portrayed in this movie: Lina considers her friends sisters while she's faced with a new stepfamily. Do you think that's typical?
  • How does Lina struggle with staying true to her roots while attempting to fit into her new world?
