What it's about:


From the director and producers of TV's The Loop this coming of age teen comedy features high school jocks Shawn (Nicholas D'Agosto) and Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) who are top scorers on the Gerald R. Ford High School football team... both on and off the field.

However, as the school year comes to a close and summer draws ever nearer, the pair are depressed as they know that all the near future has in store for them is football camp where they'll spend the sun-soaked months tackling dummies and getting screamed at by overambitious coaches.

When Nick puts forth a brilliant notion to get them out of football camp, Shawn leaps at the chance to join him and the pair quickly hatch a scheme to exchange their footballs for pom-poms and join the school's most beautiful girls at cheerleader camp instead.

While at first the pair are determined to goof off and make out with as many pretty girls as possible, their arrival actually heralds an upturn in the performance of the school's historically awful cheer squad and offers them a chance at success instead. And when Shawn falls for the head cheerleader Carly (Sarah Roemer), the boys find they must learn some new moves and unleash their inner spirit to prove their intentions before the all-important cheer competition finals.

What the critics said:


"A teen comedy that views sex as an all-you-can-gorge buffet."
- Kamal Al-Solaylee, Globe and Mail

"Sloppy but moderately amusing. "
- Jason Anderson, Toronto Star

"If this movie were a teenager, you'd put it on Ritalin right away."
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post

"Spending time with these guys is the longest 89 minutes ever."
- Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News


The two most popular guys in high school decide to ditch football camp for cheerleader camp. For the girls and for the glory.
