What to know

critics consensus

Though this cheerleader comedy has an intriguing premise, it's too empty-headed and saddled with too many lame jokes to live up to it. Also, some critics say the movie is irresponsible in its depiction of teens and guns. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Sugar & Spice

  • Feb 06, 2011
    A bit enjoyable, yes, but definitely not hilarious. The story is ridiculous.

    This movie was about the head of the cheerleading squad Diane who gets pregnant for her jock boyfriend who surprisingly sticks around and stays with her during the pregnancy. Disowned by their respective parents, they attempt to work through it by getting jobs while living in a ghetto fabulous apartment. Finally losing her upbeat attitude, Diane gets her cheerleader friends in on a plot to rob the bank she works at to give her family a better life. The script is amazingly funny filled with wit and sarcasm. James Marsden (X-Men`s Cyclops) played the role of a brainless high school jock delightfully well. Kansas (Mena Suvari of American Beauty) is another good character with a lot of funny lines.This movie, while not perfect, is still one of the funniest movies I`ve seen.

    It started fun and then coasted and then it just never went anywhere. There was almost no ending whatsoever!

    Misunderstood black-ish comedy lampoons teen romances and after-school specials with disarming bubbliness. Funny and knowing script usually hits the target and perpetrated by a quintet of unlikely criminals, a squad of perky cheerleaders brought to life by several name-actresses-to-be. James Marsden also scores as a dense, undeterrably optimistic quarterback and father-to-be.
