Comments: When I started to watch this movie I thought it was going to be another teenager film with nudity and trying to get the girl in bed. But was I surprised! No nudity. Hardly any vulgar language. Just a good fun film about a cheerleading team trying to make first place in the Nationals. Kirsten Dunst is excellent as Torrance as is the rest of the cast. The brochure that comes with the DVD states that for each cheerleading squad in the movie, they were composed of 20 individuals - 8 actors and 12 actual cheerleaders to lend authenticity to the film.
Hidden Extra: From the disc's main menu, go to the 'Languages' submenu. Underneath Kirsten Dunst's picture on that screen you can now see a cheerleading megaphone. Press the 'Right' arrow key on your remote control and you will highlight the megaphone. If you press 'Enter' now, you will get to see a short clip, showing director Peyton Reed as he is congratulating you for finding this hidden extra.
