Audience Reviews for Stand Up and Cheer

This movie is made up of song and dance numbers, stupid characters, and a silly plot that doesn't make much sense. I didn't enjoy this movie, and I don't recommend it.

The plot for this movie is really ridiculous, especially watching it in "this day and age" but it's charming.
