Consensus: Despite the formulaic, fluffy storyline, this movie is surprisingly fun to watch, mostly due to its high energy and how it humorously spoofs cheerleading instead of taking itself too seriously.

Chicago Reader

This earnest and arch story -- so fast paced its formulas are wonderfully obscured -- has an adolescent energy and a tempered sexuality, and it's infused with the moral agenda of a warmly didactic sitcom.

Who would have thought that a film about competing cheerleading squads would turn out to be the one very pleasant surprise in this very dismal summer season of moviegoing?

The conclusion may be fairly obvious, but it's largely irrelevant in comparison to how uniquely Bring it On characterizes its teens.

Saw this sometime about 10 years ago, and all I remember is cheerleaders cheering. It was not a memorable film, and I did not enjoy it at the time.

A decent little comedy and one of the early dance films which are very popular now. Thankfully the main lead characters rise this slightly above your average… More

Despite it being a complete bimbo movie, it's pretty entertaining to watch. It definitely comes with some laughs.
