"Their cheer blew like a bulimic after Christmas dinner," sneers Lisa (Marla Sokoloff from Dude, Where's My Car?), a bitter B-squad cheerleader who has it in for the A squad. She's come to the police to solve the mystery of a local bank robbery--a story that begins when head cheerleader Diane (Marley Shelton, Pleasantville, The Bachelor) and star quarterback Jack (James Marsden, X-Men, Disturbing Behavior) fell in love. Before you know it, Diane's knocked up--but she and Jack are delighted and decide to get married. Their parents disown them immediately, so the young couple ends up in a crappy apartment, working low-wage jobs. They're both so unrelentingly earnest and cheerful that they won't lose heart, but Diane soon realizes that their incomes won't support their impending twins. Then, one night as she and her squad (including Mena Suvari of American Beauty) are watching Point Break, they get the idea to rob a bank... Sugar & Spice, a broad satire of high school hierarchy, is set to a sparkling pop soundtrack and features many, many shots of cute cheerleaders in tight sweaters and short skirts. The cast is enthusiastic; Sokoloff in particular seems to savor her atypically nasty role. Also featuring cameos by Jerry Springer, Kurt Loder, and an almost unrecognizable Sean Young (Blade Runner, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective). --Bret Fetzer

Cheerleaders are an easy target. They're always happy, peppy and have high standards, both in their morals and in their men. Such is the case of the five women in "Sugar and Spice."
Everything is idyllic in their world... especially when the head cheerleader meets the transfer student quarterback! But after some extracurricular activity, there's a new student on the way. And after their parents collectively disown the kids for it, it's time to stop being polite and start getting a real job.
After suffering through minimum wage jobs while trying to continue to study, and dealing with a flophouse style home with a sketchy super and desperately needing to plan for their arriving bundle, the squad comes up with a plan: rob the bank where their pregnant partner is employed! And what a plan it is!
Complete with blond doll masks and star spangled outfits, the girls are set to pull their "Reservoir Dogs" routine. But can they get away with it?
As implausible as the plot is, it's equally engaging, as we follow the team attempting to plan out this perfect crime, in order to help their friend. It's got a lot of heart and charm!
Fans of the David E. Kelley TV series, "The Practice" will recognize Marla Sokoloff as the Cheer squad's main antagonist... but fans of J.J. Abrams TV series "Alias" might NOT recognize aussie actress Melissa George who here plays the squad member obsessed with Conan O'Brien!
The DVD has both the widescreen and the standard versions of the film, plus a couple of deleted scenes (which, quite frankly, were correctly left out of the final cut, but are interesting to see here). A talented and amusing cast, and a fun story... definitely recommended!

This movie has been called a very silly farce, and perhaps it is. But for some of us it might just be the perfect antidote to some of our sour high school memories of pompousness. If you went to a school with plenty of pompousness and one where cheerleaders are virtually worshipped as goddesses and as an utterly unattainable standard for the rest of us, here's a no-holds-barred deflation of all that. It is sometimes hilarious, and I think I must speak for quite a few viewers when I say it is a thoroughly refreshing de-bunking of those myths that still haunt some of our teen memories. The cheerleaders in this movie are a motley crew of girls -- there's a super-popular one, there's a "trampy" one whose mother is in prison, and there's a super-pious one, out to retain her virginity (at least supposedly so!). But this movie brings them all down to the same earthy level and says cheerleaders can be real doofuses to all the extent of the other doofuses you knew in high school. SUGAR AND SPICE can really give one a feeling that there's not much difference after all between those school icons you most envied or wanted to emulate and their unfortunate classmates who were the butts of the most cruel jokes. At least one other recent movie seemed to celebrate and exult cheerleading as if it were the most serious and important sport since kickboxing. I guess there's a legitimate audience for such things. Some do take cheerleading very seriously, and not all of them should be assumed as having any intent of putting the rest of us "in our place". So let them be entitled to their serious cheerleading movies. But for so many of the rest of us, I must suppose, such a movie only reinforced those old memories of social stratification in school, seeming to waste some promising young acting talent in the process. So, while cheerleaders might need their serious movies, so equally do many of the rest of us need the likes of SUGAR AND SPICE as a refreshing change of pace!

The title says it all: Sugar & Spice. It's a sweet yet sour comedy about the A-squad cheerleaders and their sister-like friendship as they all unite to help the head cheerleader, Diane (played by adorable Marley Shelton) and her quarterback boyfriend support the twins they're expecting. I watched this movie not knowing anything about it, and I honestly thought as soon as Diane learns she's pregnant and gives her boyfriend the news, that he was going to leave her, but he couldn't have been more happy. In fact, the only people upset with the news are their parents who disown them, leaving the young couple to fend for themselves. They marry and take minimum wage jobs to pay for their apartment and the expected twins, but it's not enough. But that doesn't stop the A-squad from coming up with a heist plan sure to give the couple the cash they need to care for their babies. Told from the point of view of a bitter B-squad cheerleader, this is one of those fun movies like Mean Girls that's funny yet sweet without being too sugary. It will leave you cheering for these good bad girls the entire way. Enjoy...this one is definitely a keeper!

The first thought that came to mind while watching this production was "what previous films and drug cocktails inspired this plot?" While it had it's moments of halarity (is that even a word), it ultimately delivered a potencially funny premise in a pretty implausible manner. Perhaps my favorite cast member was Marla Sokoloff as her character, Lisa "The Informer" Janusch, seemed to be the only level-headed one. And, being a crime buff, I would have liked to see hints of a bigger police investigation before the cheerleaders were ratted out...build the tension and all that. After all, the police officer in the beginning of the film had emphasized how serious a crime this robbery had been...at that point, you'd have thought he was trying to nail HannibalLector for murder, but no such luck. This is a film where your own judgement on whether or not to watch it is key as I cannot in good conscience make a recommendation either way. Enjoy...or not.
