All spunk and no spark make for a mediocre movie.

About the only thing to differentiate this dud of a comedy from the likes of Date Movie, Epic Movie, and Disaster Movie is the absence of the names Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg on the credits.

Sloppy but moderately amusing.

Excuse me, I hear someone at the gates. Must be the barbarians, here at last.

If this movie were a teenager, you'd put it on Ritalin right away.

Audience Reviews for Fired Up

½

A silly mindless comedy, certainly no award winner, but if you're looking for something light there are worse movies to watch.

Pretty awful. I think the movie was trying to be sassy cheerleading (Bring It On) meets teen social critique (Not Another Teen Movie), but it doesn't quite get there with its easy dick jokes. The final cheerleading performance isn't even that impressive. They make such a big deal about not shilling for Staples that I expected Shawn to cheekily deliver the ad to the camera after recovering from his fall into the water. That would have been gold.

I eagerly want to watch this movie because I read that this is a directorial debut from director Will Gluck, whom his next two movies -'Easy A' & 'Friends With Benefits'- are two of my favorite comedy movies ever.. Just like what I saw in either 'Easy A' or 'Friends With Benefits', Gluck shows his trademark in his style of directing with those fast conversation and fast-rolling scenes which is awesomely working for me.. Even though if I must compared this movie to the classic Cheerleading movie 'Bring It On', well this movie still a little way behind.. But overall, I do really enjoy the movie despite on the easy-to-verdict story they had in here..
