Nicholas D'Agosto and Eric Christian Olsen headline this teen comedy concerning two high-school football players who attempt to avoid another summer at football camp by becoming cheerleaders. Out on the gridiron, Gerald R. Ford High School students Shawn Colfax (D'Agosto) and Nick Brady (Olsen) are star players.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All spunk and no spark make for a mediocre movie."
‑ Christine Champ, Film.com
"Excuse me, I hear someone at the gates. Must be the barbarians, here at last."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Seriously, an R-rating and this would have been a totally different, way better movie."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"A charmless, witless, lumbering mess. Almost nothing could redeem this lame comedy."
‑ Sam Toy, Empire Magazine
"Five, six, seven, eight; Fired Up is not so great."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"About the only thing to differentiate this dud of a comedy from the likes of Date Movie, Epic Movie, and Disaster Movie is the absence of the names Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg on the credits."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"If this movie were a teenager, you'd put it on Ritalin right away."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It sounds like that the kind of thing that would have been right at home with the teen comedies of twenty years ago, or even the brief American Pie-ish revival. But compared to current stuff it's actually kind of quaint."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Fired Up is big on stereotypes (hello, gay Indian guy), overstatement (if you didn't already realise, loud = funny) and borderline homophobia. To paraphrase Repo Man, the longer you watch this, the stupider you might become."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"This aggressively stupid comedy tries to have it both ways, advocating sexual probity while its cameras linger over acres of golden female thighs."
‑ David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
"Sloppy but moderately amusing."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Spending time with these guys is the longest 89 minutes ever."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"This is not made for anyone with more than a sprinkling of intelligence."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"A lamentably unfunny flick."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Fired Up is a desperate and vacuous attempt at a teen comedy that not only lacks laughs, but even the gross-out moments and shameless nudity used by other such genre offerings."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
