Not your father's Oldsmobile
6 May 1999 | by Clive-5See all my reviews

We all know how titty-flicks are supposed to be right? Well, Cheerleader's Wild Weekend ignores all predetermined conventions. The girls are ugly. They are kidnapped, yet none are raped. Their are no pillow fights or happy moments of jumping. I'm not sure why they tried so hard on the plot, either.
