Very quickly grows repetitive and groan-inducing.

The movie blows it by (A) trading in witless stereotypes and (B) not being remotely funny.

Broadly conceived and schematically directed (or is it non-directed?), this is a shallow satire, basically a short extended into feature length movie, about a rehabilitation camp for gays and lesbians that wastes the talent of Natasha Lyons.

But I'm a Cheerleader may seem too elementary to a sophisticated crowd

Will put girls off the proffession forever. An utter mess of a movie.

A trashy, pandering camp homage to the cute quirks of homosexuality.

Dumb, heavy-handed satire.

Film Journal International

A candy-coated, completely negligible bit of fluff that plays like emasculated John Waters.

The one-joke movie is cute but rarely funny.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It is just as torturous watching this film, as it probably is going through such an indoctrination program.

Most of the film's imagination and energy seem to have gone into the clever casting.

But I'm a Cheerleader plays a lot like a sitcom, only not a very funny one.

Too often she substitutes petulance for the curiosity and determination the role requires.

The way the film handles how gay and lesbian stereotypes ... is both charming and funny.
