Bring It On: Fight to the Finish

Bring it on, again, and again, and again……

I remember being at high school sporting events and watching the cheerleaders in amazement as they fearlessly jumped and flipped through the air, screaming wildly. They were in charge of getting the crowd all roused and ready to rumble! But perhaps I didn’t know what really went on in the world of “cheering”. In Bring it on: Fight to the Finish, Lina Cruz (Christina Milian) is the queen of the school, captain of the cheerleading squad, miss popularity and beautiful to boot. But when her mother remarries, Lina is forced to move across town, where you are judged by the size of the mansion you live in. Lina is faced with the challenges of a new step-family, a new school, and a whole new set of cheerleaders, all vying for the chance to go to the cheerleading championships.

Before Bring it On: Fight to the Finish even started, I figured that I’d know exactly how it would play out, after all if you’ve seen one (of the previous 4 Bring it On movies) you’ve seen them all. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that Fight to the Finish was actually a good movie! I said good not great, meaning don’t expect to see the movie up for any awards. The storyline was predictable with the nice cheerleader, the mean cheerleader, and the nerdy cheerleader with oh-so-much spirit. But with Christina Milian starring in the lead role, this movie took on that Latino sizzle that is so “HOT” right now. Her acting was mediocre, but she was actually quite charismatic on camera. I realized that cheering now-a-days is not what it was when I was in high school. No, cheering as portrayed in the movie, is professional dancing combined with kamikaze acrobatics! So even if you get bored with the storyline, the “cheering” was pretty fun to watch.

Motherly Advice: With your filters set you will see a LOT of suggestive dancing! The outfits, on and off the field, are incredibly immodest! One of Lina’s outfits is literally a bedazzled bra and white skin pants! Clearplay will do you the favor of filtering out lots of bad lyrics in the songs, and a handful of swear words. I would recommend this movie for teenage girls 12 and up if you don’t mind them watching the dancing, you may want to preview the movie first to see what I mean.

Trish~Keep Briging it and I’ll keep watching!
