Mid-way through the film, the courthouse is shown flying two flags from the same staff, with the Lone Star flag above the Stars & Stripes. Texas flag etiquette dictates that the state flag should never be flown higher than the national flag, out of deference. See more »

didn't deserve such a bad rap
29 January 2006 | by MLDinTNSee all my reviews

Sure, this is not exactly Tommy Lee Jones' finest work, but it wasn't as bad as reviews made it out to be. It was amusing at times. Jones, plays Roland, a cop who goes undercover as a cheerleading coach. He is focused on his job. And of course it makes him and the other agents squirm to see cheerleaders prancing around in house clothes. Roland goes as far as to by a $7000 air conditioner to persuade the girls to cover up more. He introduces them to pizza and its fat content. and the girls give him pointers on dating one of their teachers. But we really didn't need the wedding at the end; it was overkill. I also liked the scenes with the spy cam and at the ball game. It was funny to see him tackle the mascot and hear the crowd cheer.

FINAL VERDICT: I thought it was an OK teen film. It was funny at times. So I recommend it if you want something that is silly and fun.
