Storyline

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. Written by Joaquín Valle

Surprisingly funny and I mean actual funny not fake funny
28 May 2009 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

Fired Up looked like a stinker based on its premise "2 guys 300 girls" - but it is much wittier and fresher than expected.

It's all pretty silly and juvenile but at least it does so with a great sense of fun and doesn't take it self seriously.

Lots of innuendo, sex banter, but nothing too serious ,and it really is pretty funny stuff.

A good cast who can carry this off with panache and a definite sense of sporting fun - it is part pastiche of sporting movies - all help the time whiz by.

All in all if you want a fun movie for a pizza night and its a mixed group this actually works well. Not 100% a guys movie at all.
