Southern California high school senior Carson arrives at the all-important “Cheer Camp Nationals” determined to lead her squad, the West High Sharks, to victory. However, chic New Yorker Brooke and her team, the East High Jets, are equally steadfast in their pursuit of the competition’s coveted “Spirit Stick.” As tension mounts between the two rival squads, Carson falls for fellow cheerleader Penn, not realizing he’s a Jet. When Brooke discovers the budding romance, she raises the stakes by challenging Carson to a one-on-one cheer-off. A spectacular “cheer fighting” sequence erupts into a no-holds-barred brawl and cheerleaders on both sides are suspended from the competition. With their dreams of taking home the top prize all but shattered, the leaders of both squads realize they’ll have to take drastic measures to stay in the game. — Written by Universal Pictures
“Bring It On: In It To Win It” is the fourth in the series and now it has reached the point where is time to stop. The lifted the plot from “West Side Story” and put it into a cheerleading movie. When a film series take the complete plot from another film, its time to stop making them. If you have seen West Side Story you have seen BIO: ITTWI; the only differences is that there is a middle part torwards the end where they get together and “rumble” for the top prize.
This time around the dialog was cheesier than a government grill cheese sandwich. The performs where hollow and so bitchy it’s a wonder that all those cheerleading ego got anything done. It does have some funny moments. When the teams start to confess there secrets to become closer, that was a pretty funny scenes one of the more memorable because of the revelations.
All this still does not help “Bring It On: In It To Win It”, it is a very cheap knock off of the orginial and the series is truly showing its age. It is time to let the horse die with some dignity. It is a series that is wrung of all its money making potential with this film
There are deleted scenes. There is a bubbly making of featurette call ‘Lights, Camera, Bring It’. The Rumble w/ Tony G is a featurette highlights the cheer moves in “Bring It On: In It To Win It”. “Cheer Off: Learn to cheer with Tony G” highlights the two differents styles of cheering. There are movie previews for Sidney White and Balls of Fury.
I give it 2/5 Gs.
