Corrected entry: At tryouts, Torrance says Nationals are February 10th, but the ceremonial check presented at Nationals says "February 11th, 2000"

00:13:00 - 01:28:55


Correction: Nationals are held over two days - semi finals on February 10th, and the finals the next day, so it makes sense that the check is dated February 11th.

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.


Correction: It was a dream. Anything can happen in a dream.


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.

Correction: Something this obvious cannot be considered trivia, even a casual viewer will spot the musical similarities.


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.

Correction: Watch the routine very, very closely and both teams do it - It's one of the background stunts in the Toros routine.

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.

Correction: He is actually not suppose to be playing for real. He is "air guitaring"(with a real guitar) to a tape of his. You can see him put the tape in before he get the guitar.

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.

Correction: It is a dream and not reality, so anything could happen in a dream.

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."

Correction: Not a movie mistake. Wrong subtitles aren't done at the same time as the movie.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film where big red is talking to the girls in the locker room she walks down one row of lockers but when she goes to walk down the other and she has her back to the camera you see her almost go over on her ankle.

Correction: This isn't really a movie mistake. If anything, it is a character mistake.

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.

Correction: For one, the thing hanging on the keychain is not a notebook, it's a wallet purse type thing, and the keys were hidden behind the wallet, they didn't disappear.

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.


Correction: Actually the announcer says there are 50 teams from across the nation. This doesn't necessarily mean one from each state. Therefore, California could have had 3 or even more squads, while other states had none at the finals.

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.

Correction: The Toros do have a sponsor - Darcy's dad. It's stated in the film a few times e.g. "Darcy thinks she should get captain because her dad pays for everything." It's probably that he's a rich man and owns a company that can sponsor the Toros. As for a coach, it's never stated that they don't have one, maybe because they're allowed to make their own decisions and its not vital for him/her to appear in the film.

Corrected entry: In the scene for the cheerleading fund-raiser car wash, Cliff comes up with his car and Missy has Torrance come over so Cliff can "check out her rack". Cliff says, "I begged my mom for a brother". This is not possible, as he is younger than Missy.

Correction: Cliff is actually older than Missy, not younger.

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.

Correction: There are two teams between the Toros and the East Compton team, the uniforms are different colors. It's hard to see, because they stand so closely together.

Timothy Magnus

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.

Correction: It is not unusual in exhibition sports like these (ice skating is another) to practice a routine's very hard moves and then decide not to include them during the actual competition.


Corrected entry: At one point in the film, Missy says, "State Regionals, here we come," but any high school athlete, particularly a cheerleader, would know that a Regional Competition takes place within a state, and those placing highest at Regionals would then move on to the State Competition.

Correction: Character error not film error.


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.

Correction: The Clovers are smiling during their routine.

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.

Correction: Playstation games will contiue to run while the lid is open, some go to a pause screen while others run slowly.

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.

Correction: The boom box stops because of the vibration from the stool hitting the rail, this happens in my gym when something hits the floor.

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.


Correction: They very well could rehearse it at practice.

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.

Correction: She could have wiped off more of it when she got home...that is possible.

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.

Correction: It would be possible to put the male as a base in another spot and then move a female base into Carver's flying positions.

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.

Correction: It actually is very possible that siblings could attend different schools. Also the girls are playing characters in a movie and in the movie the characters may not be related. So how is this a mistake. There are lots of people who look alike.

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.

Correction: Throughout the film, it's made clear that Casey isn't very smart, so it's understandable that she wouldn't notice the differences between the two routines. As for the small differences, Sparky illegally sold the same routine to five teams, and it's not surprising that he would vary them a bit in an attempt to stay out of trouble.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Kirsten is in the living room trying to call her boyfriend, her brother is shown playing a playstation. When she gets mad at him for saying a comment about her boyfriend being gay, she comes over and pulls the controller out of his hands and out of the playstation but when the camera changes angles it shows the playstation open and no game inside.

Correction: It is actually possible to play the PlayStation without a game inside - it can even be open. If you are working on a level that you have already done, that is loaded off the Memory Card, not the game, meaning the game doesn't have to be in. It's only if you're continuing on to a new level that you have to have the game inside. He could have been playing an already saved level.

Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film where Torrance is at cheerleader tryouts she says "finals are on February 10th, regionals are in like 4 weeks" yet in the rest of the film it looks like its the middle of summer.

Correction: That's because they're in Southern California. I'm from there, and it is sunny and warm most of the year, even in the winter.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: After Torrence wakes up from her dream at the beginning of the movie, her alarm clock starts to go off. Then without her even touching it, it stops.

Correction: My alarm clock turns itself off after a set period of time which isn't very effective because you can learn to sleep through that minute or whatever.

Corrected entry: When the cheerleaders go to pick up Missy in Les' car, they are playing Blaque's song and Missy comes out and does a small dance routine. In this scene and the next inside the car, both Missy and Torrence are wearing only the top and skirt of the uniform. Later in the game, all cheerleaders show up wearing the uniform WITH turtleneck sweaters. As we know the girls did not change clothes at school, so it was a bit odd to watch Missy and Torrence without their turtlenecks in the previous scenes.

Correction: It is totally possible for the girls to put the turtle necks on after they arrive at the game. With my cheerleading squad we only wear the turtle necks if everyone has them. So if you get to the game you can put them on or take them off depending on what the rest of the squad is doing

Corrected entry: During the beginning of the movie, Torrance says the regionals and finals are in February and May. Later in the movie, when they say they have to work overtime for the new routine for finals, they say that they will use nighttime football games to practice. Football season doesn't last until February or May.

Correction: Torrance says regionals are in a couple of weeks and finals are February 10th. She says nothing about May whatsoever.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sparky is teaching them the routine, behind him above the seats is a poster that says "GO TOROS", above that is a clock that throughout the whole scene never changes until the very end when he gets angry and smashes the chair against the pole. It's not like time could just stand still. Or could it?

Correction: The clock could be broken.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Torance is at Missy's house talking to Aaron, she asks Missy for a pen and paper. Missy hands Torance a paper and crayon, but when Torance is writing Sparkies number on the paper, she has a pen in her hand, not a crayon.

Correction: Torrence uses the writing implement that Missy hands to her - it does not change. It has a grey shaft with black bits on the end.

Corrected entry: During the Regionals, about 18 seconds into the Clover's Routine, notice that Isis' partner has changed (this occurs after her original partner crawled through her legs) as she helps him up. A few seconds later, as the Clovers prepare to do the arm-cross move just before the shot of the judges, her partner has changed back.


Correction: Isis' partner doesn't change. There is a change of shot to show other members of the Clovers who are behind Isis on the stage. The girl you are talking about does look like Isis, but it is a different member of the Clovers.

Corrected entry: During the finals of the national competition, a male cheerleader from one of the other squads runs backstage after his squad's performance and begins talking to Les. The cheerleader is wearing a blue uniform. However his squad didn't compete in the finals, because we later see five squads on stage for awards (there were only five squads in the finals) and none of them are wearing the blue uniform of the male cheerleader.

Correction: I'm assuming that the judges would have whittled the original 50 squads who competed on the first day (preliminaries) down to, say, 20 squads who would compete on the second day (finals). The 'five finalist squads' we see on stage at the end of the film would be the five highest scoring squads on this second day. The Coyotes (blue uniform) would have competed on the second day but just not have been one of the five highest scoring squads.

Corrected entry: When Isis is talking to Torrence for the first time, Isis says, "Ugly red-head with a video camera permanently attached to her hand," if you look at the girl on the far right, you see she's on both teams. You see her again in the next scene when Torrence is talking to the Torros, and she's sitting right behind Missy.

Correction: The flyers for both the Clovers and the Toros are sisters, hence the looking similar/the same.

Corrected entry: In the scene before the regionals, when Torrance is talking to the newswoman with the team behind her, Whitney is standing next to her. The shot changes to the newswoman, then back to Torrance, and Courtney is there. The shot changes again and Whitney is back next to Torrance.

Correction: The girls are lined up behind Torrance as follows (left to right) - Missy, Casey, Darcy, Courtney, Whitney - and the order never changes throughout the scene. The girls are excited and are jigging about quite a bit - combine this with the slightly different camera angles of each of the shots of the scene, and there is perhaps the illusion that the girls' positions are changing.

Corrected entry: The cheerleading competition is all wrong. Teams need a cheer too, not just a drill.

Correction: That is not entirely true... Although some competitions require a cheer, there is an all music category where no cheer is required. I am watching an official Cheerleading competition right now... SO i know this to be true.

Corrected entry: At the football game when the cheerleaders are running out, it shows the band standing up playing for them. Then it's show the back of the crowd and you can see the band standing up again but with no instruments while the music is playing.

Correction: The band does indeed still have their instruments; they just aren't holding the instruments up as if they were playing.

Corrected entry: The cheerleaders state that tattoos are forbidden, but during the car wash, you can see Jan has a huge sun tattoo on his back.

Correction: There are two explanations for this. The sun tattoo is in a place that is not obvious and is covered up by the uniforms. The other explanation is that they were just trying to find a reason to get rid of Missy at the beginning because they didn't like her.

Corrected entry: Torrance and Isis are both captains and make the decisions. However, in order to exist in a school or to compete, they must have a coach as well, and that is the one who determines the final decisions.

Correction: As a squad, we made all of the decisions and the coach just went by what we decided. It ultimately was our decision, she just simply told the people in charge about it and was our representative.

Corrected entry: In the scene with Torrence's first practice as captain, they are doing a pyramid. In one of the shots, Whitney, the one on the far right, her leg is pulled up to her knee but in the next shot her leg is where it is supposed to be, on the middle girl's side.

Correction: I am a cheerleader, and that is how you prep in a stunt before you actually put your leg up there. She was balancing herself, the proper technique like you should before you put your leg out where its supposed to be.

Corrected entry: In the dream sequence, one of the male cheerleaders has a tattoo around his arm. However when Missy is trying out Courtney says "tattoos are strictly forbidden."

Correction: It may be a lie in an attempt to keep Missy from joining the team. Courtney is a snobby character after all

Corrected entry: In the first carwash scene Kirsten's hair is wet. Then, when she walks up to her boyfriend, her hair is completely dry.

Correction: The cheerleaders must have devoted a whole day to the carwash in order to make as much money as they could to pay for Sparky, so her hair was probably wet from the water games they were playing early in the day. Cliff most likely arrived later in the afternoon, especially since he had to dirty up his car. Thus, Torrance's hair had more than enough time to dry, especially on a perfectly sunny day in San Diego.

Corrected entry: At Nationals they say that there is one squad for every state - 50 squads. If that is the case why does California get two teams?

Correction: This is explained at the California State competition where the Toros do the 'copied, spirit fingers' routine and are DQed. A judge tells Torrence that all though the Toros will not win State, they will go to Nationals to defend their title since they are the previous year's champion. Thus, California has two squads at Nationals.

Corrected entry: Late in the movie Missy who is a newcomer to the team is practising in her house in front of the staircase. Her brother Cliff comes down the stairs and you see him from a camera shot from behind. This shot shows his trousers to be black. When you see the front camera shot of this scene he is wearing khaki pants.

Correction: His trousers actually weren't black, that was only an illusion because of the shadow.

Corrected entry: When Aaron gives Torrance the phone number for Sparky Polastry he tells her he won nationals last year. But the Toros are the defending nationals champions. None of them know Sparky so he can't have helped them win last year's nationals.

Correction: Aaron said that he had met Sparky at Nationals, but he never said that Sparky had won Nationals.

Check out the final routine at the end of the movie for the Clovers. Watching carefully, approximately 20 seconds into the routine you will see two girls on the left hand side running face to face into each other. If this had been a proper competition they would have lost because it was a major error in the routine.



When Torrence, Les, Missy, and Jan are driving in Les' car after picking Missy up, watch Les. He is constantly looking in his rearview mirror. This is because there is a cop car pulling someone over behind them.
