Two male high-school football stars (Nicholas D'Agosto, Eric Christian Olsen) enroll in cheerleading camp so they can practice their playbook on pretty girls.
" At once funnier than it should be and more witless than it should have been. "
" Bikini-clad babes and sniggering humor abound in the teen sex comedy Fired Up!, but so do some other things: namely a charming cast, glimmers of intelligence and a sweetly youthful spirit. "
" It may be as dumb as you'd expect from this team, but Fired Up is still the best 'dumb cheerleader' comedy since Bring It On. "
" 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. "
" This is a silly little movie that can. "
" A teen comedy that views sex as an all-you-can-gorge buffet. "
" About the only thing to differentiate this dud of a comedy from the likes of Date Movie, Epic Movie, and Disaster Movie is the absence of the names Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg on the credits. "
" All spunk and no spark make for a mediocre movie. "
" An arduous cheerleader comedy geared toward those too green to know that cheerleader comedies went out long before the last pompom shake of Bring It On. "
" As long as you don't expect too much, Fired Up!'s aim is true enough. "
" Excuse me, I hear someone at the gates. Must be the barbarians, here at last. "
" I didn't half-mind Fired Up, but half a mind is more than it deserves. It's Wedding Crashers with high school seniors and bras and panties, as opposed to Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson and copious toplessness. "
" If this movie were a teenager, you'd put it on Ritalin right away. "
" More tolerable than it ought to be. "
" Nobody's going to get all that fired up about Fired Up, the latest in what seems like a million-mile-long line of purposely dumb adolescent sex comedies. But as genre entries go, this one's passable fun. "
" Oh, is this movie bad. "
" Passable in its efficiency, Fired Up! is less offensive than it might have been while also managing to be staggeringly uninspired. "
" Sloppy but moderately amusing. "
" Spending time with these guys is the longest 89 minutes ever. "
" The movie has no comic or hormonal sensibility of its own -- every feeling in Fired Up! feels borrowed from another comedy, television show, or pop song. "
