DVD review: "Fired Up"
From Friday’s Weekend Look section of The Oklahoman.
“Fired Up Unrated Edition”
Guilty pleasures don’t get much guiltier than the snappy, laugh-out-loud funny, PG-13-rated teen sex comedy “Fired Up.”
Even deep-fried Twinkies seem a bit more virtuous compared to chortling consistently at the antics of smart-alecky best buds Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) and Shawn (Nicholas D’Agosto). But the believable “bromantic” chemistry between the leads and their quick delivery of countless clever one-liners give the formulaic story a fun kick.
At Gerald Ford High School, Nick and Shawn are the stars of the football team and the most active lotharios on campus. Unenthused about the prospect of spending three babe-free weeks at football camp in sweltering El Paso, Texas, the pals decide to ditch the pigskin. Instead, they con their way onto the pom squad just in time to make the trip to Fired Up cheerleading camp, where 300 nubile cheerleaders await romancing.
As far as plots go, “Fired Up” is as predictable as a pom girl chanting “two, four, six, eight, who do we appreciate.” After seducing many fellow campers, Shawn finds himself falling for suspicious team captain Carly (Sarah Roemer), while Nick is determined to win over chief counselor Diora (Molly Sims), wife of the crazily spirited Coach Keith (the hilarious John Michael Higgins). And of course, the guys become much more invested in cheering and their teammates than they anticipated.
