Content & Criticism

For those, who once in a while, watch other movies than the ordinary Pixar Disney cartoons together with their children is perfectly advised with this pleasurable romantic comedy. It couldn‘t be more harmlessly! There are only good tempered actors whereas no character is completely unlikeable overacted. Even the ordinary counterparts have their funny moments so that any of the parties can be satisfied. The story itself naturally is also a gnashing sweet cotton candy where the two scallywags Shawn und Nick spend their last year at High School with capturing many sexy girls. Certainly one means is just being a perfect football player – but when they prepare for a complete girl free football camp in the desert they shortly decide making a career as cheer and therefore go to a contest where the situation is quite the opposite: 300 girls and 4 boys......

The willing reader may already have noticed that the movie is just a poor copy of the GIRLS UNITED serial meanwhile in its 5th season. The funniest scene though is when the complete camp is watching this serial at night knowing every single dialog by heart. And just like the successful example the course of the plot is predictable with no surprises at all. In fact the popular names are missing but with series star Nicholas D'Agosto ("Heroes", "ER"), Eric Christian Olsen ("Eagle Eye", "The Comebacks") and Sarah Roemer ("The Grudge 2", "Disturbia") the right choice has been made. Series writer Will Gluck made his debut as director with this movie just like Freedom Jones as script writer. They both did a good job. Are there any nameable weaknesses? Actually not! Ist his a must see movie? Actually not!


Blessed with a theatrical release in the US the movie just brought in the estimated production costs of 20 Million dollars, however due to the DVD release there will be a handsome profit in return. That this could happen a so titled “Unrated” version was released for the home movie market. And like many times before, the result is deceptive. The differences regarding the theatrical version (also released as single DVD in the US) are hardly to find. There are many different and absolutely banal scene differences partly below one second down to some frames (for example the transitions between the individual takes differs in the initial football game. This is where just some frames have been inserted in the unrated version). Apart from that there are mostly differences in dialogs in which sometimes only ONE word differs. Only someone who bothers to repeat the lines might notice it but only after watching the movie several times and with making a mild throat clearing sound I think this won’t happen with FIRED UP! Boobs are shown in one scene but in a chaste manner and not stimulating at all – okay maybe for a twelve year old guy this will be normal! Both DVDs provide almost the same extras only the unrated disk comes up with an "uncensored" Gag-Reel and an additional feature titled "Fired-Up Press Junket - Hour 12 Footage". Apart from that all in anamorphic WS 2.40 with English and French sound and subtitles. Also the audio comments from Gluck, D' Agosto and Olson are available on both discs.

Compared are the theatrical version rated PG with the unrated version, both released as single discs in the USA. The numerous minimal differences below one second haven’t been itemized, only the censorship related dialogs and additional takes.
