Bring It On
The Toro cheerleading squad has spirit, sass and a killer routine that's sure to land them the championship trophy. But the Toro'sstumble when they learn their routines were stolen from a hot hip-hop squad across town.

Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: The fact that a bouncy teenage sports comedy can even gesture toward serious matters of race and economic inequality is pretty impressive, as is the occasional snarl of genuine satire.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Rotten: Needed more work on its vim and vigor.
- Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Fresh: This film stands out -- not as an original (its focus on fierce competition is nothing new), but as a well-executed story with likable characters and fresh flourishes.
- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000
I have to admit, I liked this film more than I expected. It's a vacuous piece of Californiana but it features an easily absorbed plot, some snappy one-liners and a racially-coded rivalry. Worth watching once - on TV. A decent enough teen movie that helps put a cap on that 90s So-Cal thing, I think I'd have liked it more if it had ended with a routine based on Punk Rock Lover Boy's musical tastes and not more of the same autotuned sugar pop that, unfortunately, was to prosper in that next decade...
