But I'm a Cheerleader is a smug little comedy that tries to mock other people's self-righteousness while ignoring its own.

I would have preferred to know more in documentary terms about the actual reality of these terrible camps, rather than sit through this heavy-handed and oddly lenient comedy.

First-time feature director Jamie Babbit's pink-drenched comedy is amusing and good-natured, but necessarily thin.

Lyonne blends hyperbole and sincerity in perfect proportions.

First rate performances all round.

Natasha Lyonne has it in her to be one of film's great young skeptics... She wants answers. Not that she's destined to get any from her new film, But I'm a Cheerleader. It shortchanges her on every count .

First-time director Jamie Babbit, who also gets credit for the basic story, has gotten hold of a funny idea, here. And although her approach tends to be a bit broad, But I'm a Cheerleader definitely has its moments.
