Fired Up!

Guest Author - Jamise Grace Liddell

Movie Reviewed: Fired Up!
Directed By: Will Gluck
Starring: Nicholas D'Agosto, Eric Christian Olsen, Sarah Roemer, Juliette Goglia, Philip Baker Hall, John Michael Higgins, Molly Sims
Rated: Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout, partial nudity, language and some teen partying.
Runtime: 89 min
Studio: Screen Gems and MTV

On the good side of completely goofy amusement, Fired Up! is the story of Nick Brady (Olsen) and Shawn Colfax (D'Agosto), popular Ford High School football players and pubescent horny toads. For Brady and Colfax every situation is presents a chance to maneuver some young girl into bed. If there is a pick-up line, these two have memorized it and said it repeatedly, with feeling.

When faced with an opportunity to spend their summer training with the football team in the hot Texas desert, the boys instead opted to join the school’s cheerleading squad and attend “cheer camp” where they can experience 300 girls and “wall to wall carpet”, on a daily basis. If you resent the “carpet” comment, completely skip this flick, the clever yet crass sexual comments fly at warp speed in this film.

Fired Up! is full of stereotypical jokes about everyone: cheer leaders, young lesbians, homosexual boys, gay men, fat and old folks, and even some wannabe doctor jokes. Needless to say, this is not a family film, but it is really entertaining. Olsen and D’Agosto make a nice team of girl grabbers.

Crude, and ruthless, the young Lotharios see the cheer camp women as consumer products of which they feast until full. Fired Up! will make you laugh out loud, but then you’ll feel guilty. At its core, the film is a real entertaining attempt to both appreciate and mock male and female cheerleaders.

In the spirit of other popular cheerleader flicks, there is lots of rivalry, cheers, tossing, flipping and women in their underwear. Thankfully, there was not a glut of unnecessary nudity, and the unneeded cursing came, mainly, from veteran actor Philip Baker Hall as the football Coach Byrnes. Is it me or is there really something attractive about children and the elderly communicating with curse words?

For every negative aspect of Fired Up!, it is actually an engaging movie. The jokes were usually funny, and this is the predictable type of cookie cutter MTV comedy one would expect. That’s right ladies, leave it to a MTV film character to call a female character who is 30 years of age, “ancient”. If you haven’t seen the movie Logan’s Run, maybe we should sponsor a screening for MTV executives, and they just might be more respectful of the aging process. Until then, women of the world, get Fired Up!
