    Not terrible, probably better than most other films in the cheer leading genre.
    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 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". 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.
