Melissa Joan Hart,
Jack and Diane were lovers, two crazy kids living in the heartlands. Airheaded Diane captains the cheerleading squad, who follow her through whatever she does. Jack is, of course, the football team's star quarterback. When Diane becomes pregnant, the two are thrown out of their homes and move into an apartment where they try to live on Jack's part-time salary from clerking at a video store. Meanwhile both continue in school - cheerleading and quarterbacking. When Diane realizes that they're not making it financially, she recruits the other cheerleaders to help her rob a bank. Their cheerleader oath of all for one commits them to helping her. A local hood gives them guns in exchange for their promise to put his homely daughter on the cheerleading squad.Written by

This movie doesn't do much, but what it does, it does good. It just tells an amusing little story with no background except to entertain.
I don't know why it gets such a bad rating, its just pretty harmless, but not bad. Maybe those people don't like the modern, black humor in it ?! Or they want movies to be serious ? Or they think having stupid characters in a movie makes the movie itself stupid ? Or they want it to be realistic ? Or what ?
I believed through the whole movie that Marley Shelton is Heather Graham, they really look very much the same. I fact, I liked it far more than Austin Powers, because it has the right joke timing. I think its the best movie with Mena Survari since American Beauty, far better, far funnier and far more natural than American Pie.
This is a funny little movie and I think its worth your time. Just don't take it serious, and enjoy its black unrealistic humor !
