Overview

The Bring It On Collector's Edition DVD has a lot to cheer about. The feature-packed disc boasts a perfect widescreen anamorphic (aspect ratio of 1.85:1) transfer highlighted by an amazing range of reds. Sound options include a choice of English Dolby Digital 5.1 and a DTS track, a French Dolby 5.1 track, and English captioning for the hearing impaired. The disc's special features are also terrific, beginning with a great commentary track by director Peyton Reed, who discusses his reasons for making the film and his methods for working around obvious teen movie cliches. The film can also be viewed with an optional "Did You Know That? Universal's Animated Anecdotes" feature in which informative text commentaries appear on screen. Another extra is "Spotlight on Location: The Making of Bring It On, a surprisingly informative 13-minute featurette with cast interviews and some behind-the-scenes footage. Also included are ten deleted scenes, two extended scenes, and a three-minute "Never-Before-Seen Home Movie of the Car Wash Scene," all introduced on camera by the director. Rounding out the package are a 40-second "Wardrobe and Makeup Test" consisting of stars Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku prancing around in outfits from the film and a music video by R&B group (and cast members) Blaque, plus the usual theatrical trailer, production notes, cast and filmmakers info, and DVD-ROM features. The final feature is an "Easter Egg" hidden in the "Language" submenu which can be accessed by pressing the megaphone by the picture of Dunst.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Doree Shafrir
At first glance, the surprise box office winner Bring It On appears to be just another pretty entry in a long procession of forgettable teen-centric movies. What separates Bring It On from its classmates, however -- besides some snazzy cheerleading -- is an unusually engaging plot, a witty self-awareness, and an ingratiating lack of self-importance. The new Rancho Carne High School cheerleading captain, Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst), panics when she discovers that her predecessor had stolen their championship-caliber moves from the urban East Compton High, fronted by the no-nonsense Gabrielle Union (10 Things I Hate About You). The pressure is on as Torrance, along with new teammate and best friend Missy Pantone (Eliza Dushku, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), rush to choreograph an entirely new routine in order to qualify for the championship for the sixth consecutive year. The East Compton squad, meanwhile, is not even sure if it will be able to raise enough cash to travel to the meet. While breezy and fun, Bring it On makes interesting points about white American culture's appropriation of black influences. Veteran TV director Peyton Reed (Mr. Show) welds teen angst, pep-squad spunk, and the amazing dance moves of two very different groups of teenagers into a winning collage. The DVD includes commentary by Reed, deleted scenes, home video footage of the car wash scene, and a music video by the R&B group Blaque.
All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
The charming Kirsten Dunst imbues a spunky airhead cheerleader with a preternatural amount of life, humor, and compassion in this above-average teen sports comedy directed by Mr. Show refugee Peyton Reed. Bring It On may not have the satirical bite of such teen-competition classics as Smile (1975) and The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom (1993), as some critics rightly complained. But what the movie lacks in teeth it more than makes up for in genuine empathy and good humor. Much of the film's success relies upon the inventiveness of the cast and Reed's loose, intuitive way with actors: a protracted, wordless toothbrushing scene between Dunst and love interest Jesse Bradford ranks as one of the summer of 2000's giddiest, most sublime movie moments. The plot follows the by-the-numbers underdog triumph model set by Hoosiers, Rocky, and countless other sports films, but there are enough wrinkles -- a proud, plagiarized competing team from East Compton being chief among them -- to keep the proceedings interesting.

Its A REALLY good movie, its about a sassy cheerleading squad that stole routines from The Clovers, which are the best team. But the thing is is that they didnt even know they were! If you wanna know what happens you got to buy this movie! It's aswome!

this movie is awesome!! The plot was something that really made it interesting. A cheerleader who has a boyfriend but falls in love with another punk guy. Great for teens and people of all ages! BUY IT!!

When this movie began production, it was supposed to be a dead-serious movie about cheer from a hardcore competition standpoint. It's something good cheerleaders wanted to see as we struggle to prove even cheers validity as a sport. They recruited from the best AllStar team, the World Champion Outlaws. It should have been amazing. Once hollywood got ahold of this movie, however, they turned it into "Clueless" with cheerleaders. If you look close, you can still see remnants of the original story. It was a thoroughly entertaining movie to be certain, but what a disappointment to those of us who would like to go beyond cheer stereotypes.

There's one star missing in my rating because there was a part missing in the movie... realism. As a competitive cheerleader myself, I watched the movie from a more technical point of view, and let me tell you there was no coach to be found anywhere! Not even gymnastic coaches! Most of the stunts were totally illegal, some of which were illegal even at a college level. In their competition routine they had no cheer, it was all just show and dance. I don¿t know¿ I love cheerleading, I think it is the best sport in the world, but there¿s a lot that also goes on behind the scenes which makes it all real and none of that was portrayed in the movie. Teamwork, fundraising, friendship, brotherhood, guidance, practice, more fundraising and even more practicing¿ But besides all of this, I must admit that it was a good hour and a half of entertainment, and it was nice to see cheerleaders in the big screen that weren't airheaded-sideline-filling-all-girl-both-feet-on-the-ground-zero-gymnastics-blond-bimbo-steoreotipical-hollywood-imaged-pom-pom-shakers.

I was facinated by this movie. The stunts were so awesome! If you think that cheerleading is dumb, check this movie out and you might think differently. Once again, the stunts were really aweseome, and it was a great show.

Although I just saw this movie over the weekend. My mom and I were having a night alone without my dad and brother. I really hate to say it but we have nothing in common! I was searching through Easy Video when I saw this movie. Many of my friends have told me how much they liked the movie. We rented it! My mom and I both loved it! I would Recomend it! (This is a real Chick Flick.)

HEY! This is a great movie. My parents thought it was stupid, but for us teenagers this movie was really cool. MUST BUY+++++++
Guest More than 1 year ago
I thought that this movie was great, for one, I'm a cheerleader and I have never been able to find cheer movies, and 2, its so much like cheerleading. Some of the best parts were when they were stunting, because I have done and seen most of the stunts performed in the Movie.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Finally, a movie all about cheerleading comes out! And what better way to do it than with a great, hot, hip, and young cast. I'm glad this movie hit like 15 million the first weekend it came out! Cheerleading is almost at its peak, with guy cheerleaders fitting in and cheerleading hitting many nations like South America. This movie makes the people that I've talked to feel alive!
