A pretty low point in the teen movie genre is this ridiculous film about four high school cheerleaders who decide to rob a supermarket bank when one of the girls () gets pregnant and married and can’t afford to live on husband ‘s video store salary. Their plans to pull off a successful robbery and getaway seem pretty smooth until cheerleader-wannabe  shows up and threatens to throw a wrench in the works. Most of it is uninspired, and the messages about giving teens more opportunities to be better at running their lives is wasted in this films’ irresponsible, cavalier attitude towards its indulgences. is left in the background, and it’s a shame given that she’s among the more charismatic of the performers.
