A ditzy blonde (Kirsten Dunst) recently becomes captain of her high schoolís cheerleading team, thinking sheíll be the head of a squad which will once again bring home the national championship. She quickly discovers that the teamís moves and routines were ripped off by the previous captain from a talented group of cheerleaders in a rival school across the state. As the championships approach, she must figure out a way to put together a new routine in order to compete in the finals.
Kirsten Dunst does a solid job in the lead role, playing the quirky airhead captain of the team. But forget her for a second, where did Eliza Dushku come from and why hasnít she been in more flicks? Looking like a younger (and hotter) version of Alyssa Milano, she completely stole the movie as the talented outsider who reluctantly joins the squad. Itís a movie which succeeds in appealing to both sexes as guys will love the dancing hotties while girls will dig the "follow your dreams" message of the cheerleading competitions. While Bring It Onís plot and ending are ridiculously predictable, go ahead and check it out anyway, you wonít be disappointed.
The best feature on the disc is "Did You Know That? Universalís Animated Anecdotes", which is basically a variation of VH1ís Pop Up Video. As you watch the movie, this option will produce small little bubbles of information on screen about the movie, the scene or cool facts about cheerleading. When running this option with the directorís commentary, youíre treated to craploads of behind the scenes info. Fans of the film will distinctly remember the infamous car wash scene and well, the DVD doesnít disappoint. It includes an extra 2-minutes of footage, shot in Hi-8 handycam style, of the girls getting down and dirty. In the cheerleading tradition, allow me to be the first to say "Hip Hip Hooray, Everyone Loves Some Hot T and A!" Sure itís a tease, but a good one nonetheless. We also get a short 90-second "Make Up Test" which basically has Dunst and Dushku prancing around in different outfits. Gratuitous yes, but bad? Hell no! Girl group Blaque, who also star in the film, have their video for "As If" round out the extras. Menus arenít animated but do feature sound.
