Ep. 378: Bring It On (2000)

29Jul

Welcome to the final week of How Have We Never Covered... And it's only fitting that the final spot in this tournament go to a sports movie. And a cult teen comedy to boot. That's right, we're discussing Bring It On. Peyton Reed's turn of the millennia cheerleader comedy with a hot young cast. A cheer squad is preparing for their next national championship run when they discover their cheers have all been stolen from a local underprivileged school. With little time left in the season, they try to reinvent themselves and take the honorable road to success. This week, we're discussing the film's approach to race, cultural appropriation and plagiarism, the film's depiction of cheerleaders and the exploitive nature of high school extracurriculars, and much more.
