Life’s looking sunny for bleached blonde San Diego cheerleader Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst). Now the captain of the championship Rancho Carne High School Toros cheer squad, she’s confident that they’re on the road to capturing their sixth National trophy in a row. Problem tho. Seems the Toros’ former captain Belichicked the routines of the rival East Compton Clovers and passed the moves off as her own – and the Clovers captain, Isis (Gabrielle Union), ain’t having it anymore.

With Toros privilege thoroughly checked, and Nationals still on the horizon, it’s up to the two captains to rally their squads for a cheer-off for the ages. Can Torrance come up with a championship routine? Can Isis scratch up the funds to make the competition? The stage is set. Bring it on!
