Overview

Based on the popular series of children's books by Deborah Gregory, the made-for-cable The Cheetah Girls is all about four teenage girlfriends, all from different ethnic and economic backgrounds, all attending a Manhattan high school specializing in fashion design. The foursome includes the unofficial leader, Galleria Garibaldi (Raven) and her pals Dorinda (Sabrina Bryan) and Chanel (Adrienne Bailon), as well as comparative newcomer Aqua (Kiely Williams). Aspiring to pop-music stardom, the quartet forms a girl group, whereupon they attract the interest of music teacher (and former disco queen) Drinka Champagne (Sandra Caldwell) -- who, in turn, refers the girls to Jackal Johnson (Vincent Corazza), a charming but duplicitous producer for Def Duck Records. Sensing that the Cheeta Girls' first taste of showbiz success will degenerate into exploitation and backstabbing, Galleria's mom, ex-model Dorothea (Lynn Whitfield), tries to save her daughter and friends from the cruelties of life in the fast lane. The Cheetah Girls debuted August 15, 2003, on the Disney Channel.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
They're the Cheetah Girls -- hear them roar in this Disney Channel movie that spawned a phenomenally successful soundtrack CD. Based on Deborah Gregory's young adult book series, the movie stars former Cosby kid Raven as Galleria, a young diva with a big heart and big dreams of pop stardom that her loving-but-disapproving mother (Lynn Whitfield) cannot vanquish. Unfortunately, Galleria also has a big mouth and a big head; and when a smarmy record producer discovers the CGs, her ego threatens to split the group. Galleria stands alone when he compels the other three girls in the group (Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams, and Sabrina Bryan), each with her own personal drama, to conform and change their style and music. Sure to be a sleepover staple, the rousing Cheetah Girls hits all the girl-power and we-can-do-anything notes, as the Cheetahs ultimately achieve success on their own terms.

This is not a good movie whatsoever. Well, it might have a few good times, but the music is not very good. Really young kids might like.
