Fired Up

Fired Up! was actually, surprisingly… good!

I had really no hopes for the movie based on the previews, it just looked like a low-budget low-class teen sex and gross-out comedy. But for whatever reason, I gave it a shot, and it is genuinely funny. It actually has some warmth to it, and it’s hard not to like the characters. The gross-out stuff is kept to a minimum, and while lots of shenanigans are implied, the sex is kept off-camera too, so kids can actually watch it (though I don’t know about the unrated version I linked to above).

The basic premise is two jocks (and these are the skinniest football lugheads I’ve ever seen) who actually possess some wit and charm decide to ditch spending their summer sweating away at football camp, and go off to cheer camp instead to get girls. Along the way they get to know the girls and, while hilarity does ensue, they also grow up a bit.


It’s not a perfect movie, but it’s also not the annoying fart movie that I was expecting, so it’s well worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet.
