"Bring It On"

I'm going to bypass the "Is cheerleading a sport?" debate and go straight to why I love this film: Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union going head to head as captains of rival schools' cheerleading teams is just plain awesome. I love it for its absurdity, which ranges from the most overt ("Spirit fingers!") to subtly funny (Rancho Carne High School means "ranch meat" in Spanish, folks). --Lisa Arnett, RedEye Eat & Drink editor
