Stick It ends up as just another disposable teen movie.

Peregrym lands on her feet, even if the movie doesn't.

Stick It uses the story of a gymnast's comeback attempt as a backdrop for overwrought visual effects, music videos, sitcom dialogue and general pandering.

I love Jeff Bridges, but watching him mumble and stumble his way through this part, I wondered if maybe he was up before a judge who gave him two choices -- jail or starring in a really bad gymnastics movie.

Jessica Bendinger looks to do for gymnastics what her Bring It On did for cheerleading: namely, give a stereotypically girlie-girl activity some defiant, individualistic attitude.

Is it a movie or an episode of Real Sports? It veers into fresh territory but not dramatically satisfying territory.

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.

Regardless of the effort, the director can't hide that she's made a spastic and ultimately directionless film.

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

Rarely is a sports movie so inept that it can't even make its central figure likable.

There is a positive message in the film, often obscured by the bogus punk attitude.

Tween and teen girls will love it, though. And regardless of age (or gender), it does make you want to put down the Junior Mints and head to the gym.

Stick It may be tough to stick out unless you're a girl between the ages of 11 and 16.

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

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

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

In Stick It attitude comes before all else. Attitude runs crazy -- cartwheeling, handspringing, bird-flipping attitude.

Halfway through, you'll be ready to tell the people behind this malnourished rubbish exactly where they can stick it.

hopes to distract us with several montages of scantily clad leotard wearing jail bait girls working out, dancing, performing their gymnastics routines and acting as sassy as possible. If you are under 18, YAY! If you are older, SHAME ON YOU!
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4

Stick It is shrill, unrepentantly lame and will surely disappoint any fan of gymnastics as Bendinger substitutes some kind of Olympic-sized political statement in place of a big, rousing finale.
