Theater Hopping: Cheerleaders and Tyler Perry, oh goody!

Posted on 19 February 2009 by Quaid

Hi all, Quaid here.  This week is really weak on movie releases, but there are a couple worth mentioning.  So let’s go…

fired-up-1First off we get Fired Up, the newest teen comedy about sexy scantily clad cheerleaders and horny teenage males’ attempts to bed them.  This time we see a group of football boys infiltrate a cheerleading camp.  Of course, they get swept away and end up helping with the girls’ routine.

I really enjoy teen sex comedies like Porky’s and even American Pie.  But this one is rated a solid PG-13, meaning the “adult themes” stay fairly kid-friendly.  Also (and I can’t believe I am going to admit this to the entire world), I enjoyed the original Bring it On.  What can I say, I like some bad 90′s teen movies.  But I think I’ve outgrown that phase, and teen movies aren’t what they used to be.  They’re usually worse (if that’s possible).

madea_jailSecond on the list is Tyler Perry Presents Tyler Perry in a Tyler Perry Film, Madea Goes to Jail, written and directed by Tyler Perry.  I swear, this guy has more movies come out in a year than Uwe Boll, and, to be honest, I am not terribly interested in seeing most of them.  They make money, though, so he keeps making them.  And they obviously have an audience, so hey, who am I to judge?  I’ll stay away, but you guys can do what you want.

Well, that’s pretty much it.  If you’re looking for a movie this weekend, I’d suggest checking out Coraline (see Shep’s review HERE) in 3D if you haven’t seen it.  And if you have seen it, see it again.  I think it will probably still be more rewarding than the other two new options this week.
