Stick It Reviews

A message of competitive independence permeates debut director Jessica Bendinger's spunky movie about Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) a headstrong gymnast-disguised-as-rebel who learns to embrace her talents by way of careful coaching from Jeff Bridges.

Like most sports movies, Stick It has a message: Unless they're equipped with loads of sass-back and a pile of band T-shirts that announce their hardcoreness, female gymnasts are really, really stupid.

A middle-aged white guy who's not a perv can actually enjoy the snappy dialogue, astounding athletics and solidly sentimental sports clichés.

an essence of by-mistake-80s-homage is the only thing keeping this movie at the crust of the rest of made for TV teen flicks

Stick It was not made for fat, bald guys in their mid-30s. So is it a big surprise that I didn't like the movie?

'This sport is a total joke!' fumes the spunky gymnast heroine of Stick It, a sentiment that will be shared by anyone who wastes their hard-earned on this silly teen comedy.

Missy Peregrym is a real find - she gives an energetic, funny and extremely physical performance, to the point where you feel exhausted just watching her.

Star Missy Peregrym shows more promise in her first feature, despite the fact that her teenage years are clearly behind her, and her charismatic screen presence enlivens an otherwise dull film.

The script fights well against the cliche-ridden plot but this is very average all round.

Snappy dialog and some prickly satire give it an edge most of these youthful romps lack.

This is a movie for fourteen-year-olds that feels like it's been written by one.

Stick It is an enjoyable kids' film with a tough group of gals who have an appreciation for gymnastics and claim that what they do is harder than being a Navy SEAL.

Writer director Jessica Bendiger has in part differentiated the film by giving it an indie feel. But the storyline is misguided in that it suggests that bad sportsmanship is to be admired.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

For a film whose characters value authenticity and natural talent, it's ironic that Stick It's rebellious nature is more of a fashion statement than state of mind and its showstopping physical feats...are computer-aided.

Bridges maintains his dignity as best he can, but Peregrym fails to convince, either as a teenager or as a gymnast.

Bendinger's film is a mess. That's really all there is to it.

Missy Peregrym is the second coming of Nancy McKeon (do I want to kiss her, or get her to change my oil?).

Bridges, as always, turns in dependable work as the hard-nosed coach Vickerman, but the character comes with a little too much backstory that neither advances the plot nor finds resolution.
