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?).

Comes unglued about two thirds of the way through

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.

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

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

A deliriously, defiantly unfocused headrush...

The film attempts, and fails, to move in directions dramatically that are just beyond the reach of the director, Jessica Bendinger, who wrote the nearly identical "Bring It On."

This film is about as bitchy and mean spirited as you can and still have sweetness and light all around at the end.

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.

"Stick It" is a movie full of attitude, eye candy and action.

This is no rah-rah spandex-strutting teen flick. It's a pointed human drama with plenty to say about the unfair, borderline child-abusive sport of gymnastics, with its archaic, dense scoring system.

Jeff Bridges has never been better than he is here as a coach who uses authority, patience and humor to motivate the gymnasts in his charge.

For teens only.

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!

I liked the passion with which the story argued its point about unfairness in gymnastic judging. But - and this is a big but - I didn't believe the plot twist that is used to make the point.

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

It would of course be irresponsible of me to say that all teenage girls will love this movie. But I can say, with some certainty, that more than a few twenty-five year old boys will like it.
April 28, 2006
There is a positive message in the film, often obscured by the bogus punk attitude.
April 28, 2006
Yes, we're in the world of elite gymnastics, and Jessica Bendinger's Stick It is an enjoyable exercise in girl power.
