Bringing It On!

Chris Sims has swapped out face-kicking for high-kicking because it’s Bring It On Week over at the ISB! If you, like me, have some sneaking (or not-so-sneaking) affection for the best race-relations cheerleader movie ever*, then get on over there for the stick-figure action and way more cheer-puns than you ever want to see.
But this is a blog with pretensions to social relevance, and that means my contribution to Bring It On week is obliged to harsh your high. Check it: one of these things is not like the other:

* No, Revenge of the Cheerleaders doesn’t count, no matter how many full-frontal Hoff shots it contains.

  1. Ooh, ooh, is it that the last film looks like it’s about two blonde cheerleaders? As opposed to a blond cheerleader and one from a racial minority?
    I didn’t even know there were four films. I knew there was a sequel, but that was about it.

  2. Fraser: you win the prize! That said, I haven’t seen any of the sequels, so even though they keep the white girl/black girl thing, they might not have done much to preserve the race-relations themes from the original. But still. Where’s the other other sequel with two black girls rivalling it up?
    Some of the YouTube clips I’ve seen of the sequels are mind-destroying. Bring it on week has been an eye-opener for me!
