Critic Reviews

  1. I didn't half-mind Fired Up, but half a mind is more than it deserves.

    Passable in its efficiency, Fired Up! is less offensive than it might have been while also managing to be staggeringly uninspired.

    Though not nearly as raucously funny as the leads in "Wedding Crashers," Nick and Shawn resemble junior versions of the one-track-minded womanizers played by Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
  4. A kind of dumb but also kind of smart-about-being-dumb comedy.
  5. The movie has a sharper and more acerbic screenplay than you normally find in bargain-basement, D-list teen comedies.
  6. 50
    If this movie were a teenager, you'd put it on Ritalin right away.
  7. If you loved "Wedding Crashers," then, for all intents and purposes, you've already seen Fired Up – because this new movie borrows from the 2005 Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson hit with such utter shamelessness, you have to wonder if royalty checks are already in the mail.

    A cheer-leading film which is more "masculine" focused and aimed primary more to the male democratic but females will also enjoy.
    There are a few classic teen comedy jokes which have been recycled from other movies, but overall the movie is just a bit of fun.

    Hyper-fast teen comedy made to make people laugh and not to be taken too seriously. The jokes come hard, fast and un-PC, but they are neverHyper-fast teen comedy made to make people laugh and not to be taken too seriously. The jokes come hard, fast and un-PC, but they are never mean-spirited; there are tons of obvious and obscure (visual and verbal) references for geeky viewers to parse and the whole thing is extremely self-referential and postmodern-y. Think less "American Pie" and "Bring It On" and more "Clueless" and "Popular" on hormonal overdrive. Well worth a watch, just like the director's follow-up "Easy A". Full Review »
