Two guys, Nick and Shawn decide a two week stint at a Cheerleaders' Camp is the perfect opportunity to score tons of meaningless romantic liaisons with lonely girls in tight-tops and short-short skirts. But their lusty plan to caress as many pom-poms as possible goes awry when one of the dudes fall in love.
Shawn Colfax (Nicholas D'Agosto) en Nick Brady (Eric Christian Olsen) zijn twee sterren van hun footballteam die deelnemen aan een cheerleaderkamp in plaats van het nieuwe footballkamp dat eraan zit te komen. Ze worden al snel overspoeld door prachtige jonge vrouwen en ze hebben de tijd van hun leven, totdat Nick stapelverliefd wordt op Carly (Sarah Roemer), die hen niet helemaal vertrouwt.
Nicholas D'Agosto and Eric Christian Olsen headline this teen comedy concerning two high-school football players who attempt to avoid another summer at football camp by becoming cheerleaders. Out on the gridiron, Gerald R. Ford High School students Shawn Colfax (D'Agosto) and Nick Brady (Olsen) are star players. But summer is drawing near, and this year neither Shawn nor Nick can stomach the prospect of spending their sun-soaked months lunging at tackling dummies and getting berated by their coach. Fortunately, Nick has a brilliant solution to their current dilemma: sign up for cheerleading camp and spend the sum...
mer surrounded by gorgeous women. But head cheerleader Carly (Sarah Roemer) can see right through them, and when Shawn falls head over heels for her, their genius plan hits an unexpected hitch.
FIRED UP (or F.U. for short) is built on the infallible comedic concept of two randy high-school football stars (Nicholas D'Agosto of HEROES and Eric Christian Olsen of LICENSE TO WED) who lie their way into a cheerleader summer camp (instead of the football camp where they belong). The movie's aims are obvious: push for maximum sleaze, raunch, and over-the-top hilarity with the assurance that the boys will learn some valuable lessons, fall in love for real, and even get in some good cheers. It's AMERICAN PIE meets BRING IT ON, and there's nothing wrong with that if the choreography is right--and it is.
r/>The cast is surprisingly good as well, with Sarah Roemer (DISTURBIA) and Molly Sims (THE BENCHWARMERS) lending charm and good sportsmanship as the "lucky" girls who eventually reach the boys where it counts (in the heart). Philip Baker Hall (HARD EIGHT) lends his welcome, craggy face as the foul-mouthed football coach, and instructing the cheerleaders with a special sort of zeal is A MIGHTY WIND's John Michael Higgins. It's the first time directing for Will Gluck (THE LOOP) and he keeps the gags flying fast enough to cover any loose ends.
