Teen Critics Kimi and Shelby give thumbs up to Fired Up! (Screen Gems)

A text messaged Teen Critic review from Kimi Allen and Shelby Iacometti:

Kimi: Hey Shelby girl, that movie Fired Up! was super cool.
Shelby: OMG, it totally was. I loved Nicholas D'Agosto as Shawn Colfax, Eric Christian Olsen as Nick Brady, and Sarah Roemer as Carly, they were all so funny.
Kimi: Yeah, they had some real acting skills. I want to watch it again. I think this movie is definitely the Bring It On of our generation, you know?
Shelby: Maybe, I actually think it is better then Bring It On . I mean, yes Bring It On will always be THE classic cheerleading movie, but I will always remember Fired Up!
Kimi: True, but it wasn't even that much of a cheer movie. I don't know it still ROCKS.
Shelby: Yeah, it most definitely ROCKS!!
Kimi: I honestly thought this movie was going to be just another cheer movie where you already know what is going to happen, but this movie wasn't as predictable as I thought it would be.
Shelby: No...The only predictable part was the fact that the guy was gonna get the girl. But the way he got her was not expected. I absolutely LOVED this movie!!
Kimi: I would seriously pay to go see this movie again!
Shelby: Same here!!
