While not one of the best movies of the 2000’s, Bring It On is fresh and gives us a glimpse into a world many of us would not consider looking into. That of cheerleading. This story focuses on the cheer squad of Rancho Carne High School in San Diego. The El Toros have won the national cheerleading championships for five years straight. They are so good that no one ever comes to the games to see the teams they cheer for, just them. Even the the band perks up when they come on to the field. This year, the new captain is Torrence Shipman (Kirsten Dunst), and she is confident that she will not have any problems taking the team to their sixth victory, since she will be doing the routine that was created be the former captain, Big Red (Lindsay Sloane) had put together. Big Red had lead them to quite a few consecutive national championship wins, so it would be easy enough to take what was already set for the next win. Torrence is in for a very rude awakening when she loses one of her squad members, Kasey (Rini Bell) to a pyramid accident, and she needs to be replaced. After some very interesting tryouts, and some cheer snobbery by Courtney (Clare Kramer) and Whitney (Nicole Bilderback), who were both pushing to get Whitney’s slightly slutty little sister on the Toros squad, Torrence overrules everyone and chooses an accomplished gymnast with an attitude, Missy Pantone (Eliza Dushku), as the new member. Torrence has support on her decision from two of the male cheerleaders on the squad, Jan (Nathan West) and Les (Huntley Ritter), because they see Missy as a positive asset to the squad.
