    This movie isn't as bad as everyone else is saying it is. it isn't only about two guys who are womanizers but also about a cheerleading squad that comes in last every year and with the help of these "womanizers" come up and do better than ever before.

    I took my two teenage kids to see this. Its not as bad as I thought it would be. Its entertaining and has some funny moments.

    Despite this films failings -- and as the above reviewers had rattled on about at great length, there are many -- the chemistry between the two leads had me laughing start to finish. Perhaps I went it to it with such low expectations, it had to be good. Who knows...

    I think the main reason it's getting reviews that aren't good is that the target audience is mainly younger people, rather than the people who are most likely to be reviewing it. I thought it was funny from the beginning to the end. It was joke after joke after joke. It was consistently funny throughout the entire movie. The ending is also kind of a surprise.

It's definitely enjoyable, and it's worth seeing. Expand

    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 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" andHyper-fast teen comedy made to make people laugh and not to be taken too seriously.

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". Expand

  1. It's like being trapped for an hour-and-a-half in a pound full of yappy puppies.

    We're light years away from "Animal House," sure, but who ever thought we would long for the richer, funnier dignity of "American Pie?"
  3. The teensploitation premise is like something a porn filmmaker from the '70s might have come up with. But Fired Up! has one added quirk: The script, credited to Freedom Jones, is a riot of tongue-twisting ironic sleaze -- it sounds like the first (and last) collaboration between Diablo Cody and Artie Lange.
