Bring it On [DVD] [2000]

The Bring It On Collector's Edition DVD has a lot to cheer about. The feature-packed disc boasts a perfect widescreen anamorphic (aspect ratio of 1.85:1) transfer highlighted by an amazing range of reds. Sound options include a choice of English Dolby Digital 5.1 and a DTS track, a French Dolby 5.1 track, and English captioning for the hearing impaired. The disc's special features are also terrific, beginning with a great commentary track by director Peyton Reed, who discusses his reasons for making the film and his methods for working around obvious teen movie cliches. The film can also be viewed with an optional "Did You Know That? Universal's Animated Anecdotes" feature in which informative text commentaries appear on screen. Another extra is "Spotlight on Location: The Making of Bring It On," a surprisingly informative 13-minute featurette with cast interviews and some behind-the-scenes footage. Also included are ten deleted scenes, two extended scenes, and a three-minute "Never-Before-Seen Home Movie of the Car Wash Scene," all introduced on camera by the director. Rounding out the package are a 40-second "Wardrobe and Makeup Test" consisting of stars Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku prancing around in outfits from the film and a music video by R&B group (and cast members) Blaque, plus the usual theatrical trailer, production notes, cast and filmmakers info, and DVD-ROM features. The final feature is an "Easter Egg" hidden in the "Language" submenu which can be accessed by pressing the megaphone by the picture of Dunst.

Synopsis

Bring It On
The hard work, dedication, and personal politics behind "rah rah rah!" and "sis boom bah!" go under the microscope in this engaging teen comedy. Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst) discovers that being captain of her San Diego high school's six-time championship-winning cheerleading squad is more complicated than she had imagined. Torrance's parents want her to spend more time on her homework, her boyfriend wants her to spend more time with him, and she learns that the squad's former captain stole some of their best routines from other teams -- and that Isis (Gabrielle Union), captain of a top squad at a crosstown, inner-city high school, plans to fight back this year. To make things worse, when one of the cheerleaders is injured, Torrance is forced to replace her with Missy (Eliza Dushku), a cynical new kid who is involved only because the school doesn't offer gymnastics. In the midst of this chaos, with the national championship around the corner, Torrance couldn't have picked a worse time to fall in love with Cliff (Jesse Bradford), a classmate who cares a lot more about punk rock than school spirit. Dunst trained with a cheerleading squad for her role, though a double performed the more complicated stunts. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
