good movie but would say more a chick flick. daughter and i really enjoyed but the hubby was a bit bored
Liked this film, some good acting and a good story. Good gymnastics sequences. Its a very good film. Good looking girls and a happyish ending.
Liked this one, good acting and story, the gymnastics were great, and great the way they came together in the end.
cool storyline. very real. but a bit predictable. rebellious and fun. a definite once watcher though.
An amazingly inspiring story. I absolutely loved it!
This is your typical teenage film about rebellion and attitude but has an underlining message that all these types of movies have. If you like gymnastics then you will probably like this film. It was OK but just your typical feel good movie.
Nice film, goes along the lines of a lot of the dancing movies out there, but not a bad cast and most watchable...
I liked this movie reminded me alot of bring it on the cheerleading/gym movie.
Yes I would watch it again.
Haley, a highly gifted young athlete, stunned the gymnastics community by mysteriously... Read more walking out on her team mates at the prestigious World Championship. Plunged into an unexplained life of rebellion, Haley became a frequent visitor to the juvenile detention center. Her problematic parents have reached their wits end (a short trip) and the judge offers Haley a choice: go to a military academy or return to gymnastics. Haley chooses the military academy so the judge wryly ships her off to gymnastics instead.
Haley’s new coach Burt Vickerman is better known for turning out injured gymnasts than championship competitors and his rough and tumble style quickly clashes with Haley’s authority issues. The two finally unlock horns when Burt agrees to get Haley trained for a competition where the prize money would be enough to pay off the restitution she owes the court.
What Burt doesn’t bargain for are the effects Haley’s boat rocking attitude has on the rest of his team and neither of them is prepared for what happens when Burt uncovers the reasons behind Haley’s strange championship walk-out and troubled past. With all that emotional tension unleashed, Vickerman and his team find themselves poised to turn the gymnastics world on its head (which is really hard to do since gymnasts spend a lot of their time upside down anyway).
Slightly different to the usual formulaic bad-girl-tuns-good-and-wins-as-a-result teenage flick, this movie includes some spectacular gymnastics moves and behind-the-scenes strength building exercises... Read more that made me break out in a sweat just watching! Thankfully the ending isn't as predictable as I originally thought, but unfortunately it's still pretty unrealistic. Makes for an easy to watch feel-good movie though, if you can get past wanting to give the main character a good slapping in the opening scenes.
This movie is only suitable for young girls under 16. I was disappointed to see Jeff Bridges doing this sort of movie. He normally does better than this. Bad acting, bad editing, just bad.
