Overview

The directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Francine McDougall, this teen comedy stars Marley Shelton as Diane, captain of the Lincoln High School A-squad cheerleaders, the most popular girls in their school. They include born-again Christian Hannah Rachel Blanchard, the rebellious Kansas Mena Suvari, late-night talk show fan Cleo Melissa George, and brainy geek Lucy Sarah Marsh. When Diane learns that she's pregnant, she and her stud quarterback boyfriend Jack James Marsden get hitched and quickly learn that marriage with children is an expensive proposition. With some advice from Kansas' convict mom Sean Young, the squad embarks on a plan to rob a bank, but their peppy enthusiasm and patented cheerleading moves may give them away to the authorities.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
The last thing the movie world needs is another teenage comedy about conniving cheerleaders, but to be fair, this cheerfully vulgar entry in the teen sweepstakes hits the mark more often than not. Like most recent movies of its ilk, it owes nearly everything to Amy Heckerling's buoyant 1995 feature Clueless, right down to its specific female vernacular. Unlike that charming romantic confection, however, this film plays a bit darker. Sugar & Spice usually scores when it focuses on being a vicious satire of teen woes, and is less adept at creating a story and characters viewers should actually care much about. The spirited performers who populate the cast, however -- including Melissa George, Marla Sokoloff, and American Beauty ingénue Mena Suvari -- keep the proceedings engaging. Once intended as a unflinching black comedy (and originally called Sugar & Spice & Semiautomatics), the material was cleaned up by the filmmakers after the tragic Columbine shooting in Colorado in 1999. The result is wildly uneven and sometimes incoherent, but when the movie has its head on straight, the zingers fall right into place.
New York Times - A.O. Scott
The caper unspools with the right mix of innocence and mean-spiritedness, driven by a noisy power-pop soundtrack. At one point the Lincoln marching band plays a brassy version of the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop," and the movie as a whole sometimes recalls the demented anarchy of Allan Arkush's "Rock 'n' Roll High School," which featured that great punk band at the tail end of its prime. The movie is full of scattershot gags and indifferent acting, but you get the feeling that it's bad on purpose, which makes it, given the number of teenage movies that are terrible by accident, not bad at all.

    Good sarcastic fun

    I liked this movie a lot. I think it's one of the better teen spoofs out there. It's pure fluff, but it's fun fluff, and will make you laugh. Sure, it's not realistic or anything, but it doesn't take itself seriously and is never meant to be seen as realistic anyway. Let yourself enjoy it and you won't be disappointed.

    Excellent movie

    Sugar and Spice was terrific. It had a great story line, it was funny and it kept you on the edge of your seat. I think it is a great movie, mostly for teenagers or young girls, but I strongly think anyone can enjoy this film. The storyline is far fetched, but hey, it's meant to be, that is what makes it so funny! The whole movie did not have one boring thing in it and it had me in hysterics almost the whole time. In conclusion, I will reccommend you see this as soon as you can becuase you will love it.

    Bad writing

    This movie was not well writen and did not have very good dialogue in it.The movie was very short and the characters were very bad too. I think that the movie would have been better if the plot and the story line were very different.This movie was so bad that it should have never been writen. Ithink that good movie are long, and keep your attention the whole entire time. Sugar and Spice did not make sense, and it could have been better, for instance making the characters have better roles and having the right people play the right roles in the movie. I would not recommened this to book to anyone thats how very bad that it is. I do not like movies that are poorly written like this one was.
