Rated PG-13 · 89 minutes · 2009

A couple of wise-guy high school football players (the likable Nicholas D’Agosto and Eric Christian Olsen) looking to score girls eschew football camp for cheerleader camp. They have nothing but mischievous intentions, but get swept up in the spirit of things by film’s end. The jokes start getting tired fairly early on, and the humor suffers from repetition. I also got the sense that this was supposed to be a lot dirtier, but got scaled back for a PG-13 rating. Sarah Roemer is OK as D’Agosto’s love interest. D’Agosto and Olsen work well together, and the duo has some good moments, but it’s not enough to maintain an entire movie. Olsen is 31, with D’Agosto right behind him at 28, so that’s a little weird, but they are semi-convincing as high school students.
