Description

Megan (Natasha Lyonne) thinks she's cheering for the same side - but her parents thinks she bats for the other side! Megan has got it all - she is popular, pretty, a model student, and is dating the captain of the football team. However, the cheerleading teenager is accused of being gay by her religious, over-zealous parents. They pack her off to a sexual reorientation camp, not realising that it is "camp" in more ways that one! What Megan's parents hoped would set her on the straight and narrow is a revelation to her, and a breeding ground for her burgeoning sexuality...

Review

A promising comedy that goes awry all too early, But I'm a Cheerleader concerns a misunderstood high school kid (Natasha Lyonne) whose parents send her to a harsh, homosexual-rehabilitation camp despite a lack of evidence that she's gay. Ruled with an iron fist by a fascist counselor (Cathy Moriarty), the clinic only drives Lyonne's character toward an attraction to a rebellious tomboy (Clea DuVall), though screenwriter Brian Wayne Peterson and director Jamie Babbit are curiously intent on keeping the two apart and depriving the audience of other comic possibilities. Meanwhile, hoary clichés abound: prancing boys, butch gays, lipstick lesbians. Despite a fine cast full of young talent, and cameo appearances by Julie Delpy and RuPaul Charles, this attempt to skewer a present-day trend in "curing" homosexuals of their sexual preferences is flattened by stereotypes and unimaginative thinking. --Tom Keogh
