Things in Bring It On you only notice as an adult
The year was 2000 and the school spirit was strong — or at least it was for the fictional Rancho Carne Toros in the now cult-classic Bring It On. Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Jesse Bradford, and Gabrielle Union starred in this chipper cheerleading movie with all the trappings of the uber-trendy era in which it was set. Plus, to its credit, it did deal with non-surface-level issues such as cultural appropriation, gender, race, and sexuality. By the film's end, you were probably cheering for the Toros and Clovers, too (and kinda wishing you were one).
While it will always be a fun flick to watch when you're feeling nostalgic, let's just say the spirit stick may have lost a little of its luster over the years. Hitting the play button on Bring It On now means noticing things your high-school self likely overlooked. So, to loosely quote the fearless Toros leader Torrance Shipman, "Awesome, oh wow! Like, totally check it out!"
