Corrected entry: The music the Toros use during their routine at the Finals against the Clovers is actually sped up and strung together versions of most of the songs heard previously in the film, including Blaque's theme, "As If," and Cliff's love song to Torrance.
Corrected entry: When the first cheer starts (I'm sexy, I'm cute.) Everybody steps to side, and finally, Big Red start to sing. In the next shot, everyone has taken their positions behind Big Red. How could they do that without be seen? She could has gone under, but then we will have seen them.
Corrected entry: While they are showing the overview of the preliminaries at nationals, it shows the Toros doing the move where the cheerleader does a frontflip and is caught by some other cheerleaders. But in the finals of the nationals, it is actually the Clovers that perform this move.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Cliff is playing his guitar and Torrance is watching him, it is really obvious that he isn't actually playing the guitar, because more than once he falls over and stops "playing", yet the guitar music keeps going while he is stopped.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene of the movie, the number of female cheerleaders changes several times. You have to watch very carefully as the scene moves quite quickly.
Corrected entry: When they are at the football game and the cheerleaders from the other team come up and do their little cheer to the Toros, they say, "You suck." But on the part where they lift up their skirts the subtitles say, "You Scum."
Corrected entry: During Missy's Cheerleading Audition, when she attempts to do her first cartwheel act, she first takes out the notebook with the keychains all dangling. When she leaves, there is only a notebook, no chains, no keys.
Corrected entry: We're told at the finals that there are 50 teams, one from every state regional final. But apart from the Clovers (the regional champions) and the Toros (who get a bye for being defending champions), we also see a team with white and blue uniforms with the word SAINTS written on the front in yellow letters competing in both the regionals and the nationals.
Corrected entry: How is it possible that the Toros go to all these competitions and compete at Nationals without a coach or sponsor? Any cheerleader like me knows that if you don't have a coach or sponsor, you're not even a team.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when the MC's are announcing the wining squads they say that the five finalist teams are presented at the end today, yet on the floor there are only four teams, the Toros, the Clovers, the Cavilers, and another team, but no fifth team.
Corrected entry: When the preliminaries are shown there are different clips of many squads at different points in their routines, and one time a Toro girl is thrown in the air over two people, does a flip in the air and is caught, but when they show the entire routine the next day at the finals there is nothing closely resembling this move during the entirety of the routine.
Corrected entry: In cheerleading, you're supposed to make 'bring it on' type faces, but the judges do give you major points off if you don't smile at all - and the Clovers don't. Their routine is great, but if they didn't smile, I highly doubt they would have even made it to regionals.
Corrected entry: When Torrance and her brother are having an argument about Aaron being gay she pulls the controller out of the PlayStation. Then there is a shot of the PlayStation and you can see that the lid is open and the game is still running. PlayStation games do not run if the lid is open.
Corrected entry: When the team hires Sparky to teach them a routine, he brings a boom box, which he uses to play the music. During one scene, he gets angry at them and slams a stool against a rail. When he does this, the music stops, even though he hasn't touched the boom box.
Corrected entry: During Missy's first football game, the other team's cheerleaders do a cheer and tell them that they suck. In response, the Toro's do their "That's all right, that's OK, you're going to pump our gas someday" routine back at them. I highly doubt this is a routine rehearsed during practice, but Missy appears to know it very well. (00:34:15)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Missy wets her finger to prove that the tattoo is fake, it shows that she only wipes away the bottom half of the tattoo. However, in the very next scene where Torrence goes to Missy's house begging her to join, the tattoo on Missy's arm looks like she erased the top half as well as the bottom half.
Corrected entry: Given that Carver was used in pyramids and stunts (as established by the scene where she was injured), it makes no sense that males were allowed to even try out for her spot. Male cheerleaders are not used in pyramids (except as bases), and therefore only a female could effectively replace her on the squad.
Corrected entry: During the finals at the end, you may notice that the short cheerleader from the Clovers team, has a look-a-like on the Torros' team. It is not the same girl, they are different girls, played by twin sisters. It is very unlikely that twins would or could attend different high schools.
Corrected entry: At the regionals when the girl called Casey claims that they stole the Toros' routine the shot changes to show the way that the other squad starting their routine. They start like the Toros start their first routine. But when the Toros start their routine they are all in little bits and pieces and there is a little round pyramid at the back. It isn't the same routine, so the other squad haven't really stolen it.
