The teensploitation premise is like something a porn filmmaker from the '70s might have come up with. But Fired Up! has one added quirk: The script, credited to Freedom Jones, is a riot of tongue-twisting ironic sleaze -- it sounds like the first (and last) collaboration between Diablo Cody and Artie Lange.

It’s surprisingly funny for another weak "American Pie" rip-off; Nicholas D'Agosto and Eric Christian Olsen make a hilarious pair; If you're under the age of 25 you’ll like it.

The movie has a sharper and more acerbic screenplay than you normally find in bargain-basement, D-list teen comedies.

Fired Up feels like everybody's first time doing anything - writing, acting, directing, cheerleading.

It's like being trapped for an hour-and-a-half in a pound full of yappy puppies.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Here is a movie that will do for cheerleading what "Friday the 13th" did for summer camp.

Tries waaay too hard, just like its motormouth jock-snark heroes.
