“When you go to nationals…bring it.”

Fan favorite Bring it On returns to the big screen as Micaela’s Staff Pick. A young Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union star in this energetic comedy about the cheer rivalry that develops when a white, affluent squad is exposed for stealing all of their routines from a predominantly Black squad. At first glance a light-hearted romp about the path to cheerleading nationals, the film is also a savvy critique of cultural appropriation.

2000. USA. 98 minutes. Rated PG-13 for sex-related material and language.
