Bring It On
In Universal Pictures’ and Beacon Pictures’ Summer 2000 comedy Bring It On, two cheerleading squads from rival sides of the tracks are butting heads-and busting moves-to see that nothing stands in their way from making it to the top. Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst) is on top of the world when she is named captain of the Rancho Carne High pep squad, yet as she prepares to lead her squad to their sixth consecutive national championship title, the dream becomes a nightmare. She discovers that her squad’s impressive cheer routines-honed to perfection for the contest-were stolen from the Clovers, an inner city, hip-hop squad. Now the Clovers, led by their captain, Isis (Gabrielle Union), are competing in the nationals for the first time, and are not about to let the Toros off easy. Torrance’s dilemma is complicated by the mutinous rumblings of disgruntled teammates, and the appearance of a new and unlikely member of the squad, Missy (Eliza Dushku) and a new romantic interest, Cliff (Jesse Bradford). With time running out, and the pressure mounting, Torrance must act quickly to save the Toros’ reputation and their national title, as they head off to a contest they will never forget.
