Format:DVD
Kellie Martin plays unpopular high schooler Angela Delveccio, who longs to be part of the "in" crowd. She joins as many activities as she can, including The Larks, which is an afterschool service club. Many of the popular girls are Larks, including the nasty Stacy Lockwood (Tori Spelling) who delights in humiliating the lone goth chick at school.

One night, Stacy and Angela get into a fight and Anglea blurts out an embarassing litany of reasons why she's so obsessed with Stacy. Unsurprisingly, Stacy is creeped out and mocks Angela, saying she's going to tell everyone at school about how weird Angela is. The idea of public humiliation pushes Angela over the edge and she stabs Stacy to death. The last part of the movie deals with Angela trying to keep her crime a secret from the police while the poor goth chick gets blamed by students for Stacy's death.

I saw this on Lifetime a couple years ago and have been waiting for it to be released on DVD! Kellie really nails the character of the desperate, plain-jane Angela and Tori is perfect as the rich bitch Stacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Also known as "A Friend to Die For" January 7, 2006
Format:DVD
First saw this made for nbc-tv movie in 1994. Starred Kellie Martin as Angela and Tori Spelling as Stacy. This got great ratings when it initally aired. I was glued to my seat the entire 2 hours. Tori Spelling does an awesome job playing bitchy Stacy Lockwood and Kellie Martin does a great job playing unpopular Angela. If you're a fan of mid-90's tv movies than this is one you should pick up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful insight into the heart of a tormented girl. October 20, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kellie Martin puts in an absolutely brilliant performance as the desperate-to-be-accepted outcast. Tori Spelling is wonderful as the golden girl who seems to have it all, because she fits in with what others prize, including the alleged adults who run the show.

What is so sad here is that Kellie Martin's character is the one with the talent and drive. If she had not been pushed over the edge by the taunting of others and her childlike need for approval, life would have ultimately proven her to be the success.

Kellie Martin's performance is so on-target that at times it is agonizing (and embarrassing) to watch. The subtle changes of emotion on her face during the principal's "be the best" speech should have won her awards.

If you are a fan of Lifetime movies, Death of a Cheerleader definitely belongs in your collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blaming the victim February 13, 2011
Format:DVD
Stacy Lockwood, a cheerleader and the most popular girl at Santa Mira High School, is dead. She dies in hospital after a knife attack by another girl who fled in a car.

That's how "Death of a Cheerleader" (also known as "A Friend to die for") begins. Then there is a flashback, and we see Stacy and her friends 10 months earlier at the beginning of a new academic year at Santa Mira High School. "It is excellence", the high school principal tells the new students, "second-best is simply not good enough."

Stacy, the spoilt daughter of rich parents, is one of those who manage "to be the best". She is queen bee and openly nasty to anyone she does not like, especially to Monica, a highly unpopular girl who wears black and has her hair dyed.

Another girl who doesn't fit is Angela Delvecchio. Angela is pretty, nice and smart, but she comes from a rather poor family, cannot afford expensive stuff. Angela is nice, shy and insecure and desperately wants to belong. Her idol is "Queen Bee" Stacy Lockwood, the daughter of rich parents, a good athlete, cheerleader and the most popular girl at school. Angela is desperate to fit in and determined to be the best - she wants to become a cheerleader, to be on yearbook staff and so on. When she fails, "her whole world falls apart" (that is how a friend of the real Angela describes the girl's feelings in one of the articles about the "cheerleader murder"). Angela adores Stacy and wants to be her friend. When Stacy rejects her and Angela is afraid to be humiliated in front of the whole school by the nasty girl, the good girl turns bad... When Angela is rebuffed by Stacy, she explodes in a rage and stabs Stacy to death.

It is not a bad film - Kellie Martin is marvellous as "Angela Delvecchio".

4.0 out of 5 stars High School=ugly! October 25, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
How many people went through this in High School? The need to be popular, the mean girl who everyone is scared of and in awe of at the same time, and adults involved who think that winning is everything. This story is so real. As a teacher, I would like to create a curriculum around itto help others learn how to think for themselves and how to develop self worth. The casting was perfect. Tori played a good heifer and Kellie has pathetic down pact.

4.0 out of 5 stars good film December 4, 2005
By puff
Format:DVD
...especially for teens. Kellie Martin is perfect as the role of a sweet, smart, hardworking Catholic girl who feels the need to become popular like the snooty, blonde,fakey girl played by, who else, Tori Spelling. Tori's acting isn't the greatest, in my opinion, but Kellie's is great as always. Kellie's character has such an inferiority complex that she goes to extreme lengths in an attempt to get the blonde to let her into her crowd. The end result is devastating. I think this film was based on a true story, but I am not sure. It has a good message.

P.S. I want to let Kellie Martin fans know that I heard on a Down's Syndrome website that Life Goes On, the show that made her a star, is going to be available on dvd this summer. I can't wait to buy it.
