Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Bring It On's characters (cheerleaders in a high school, primarily) frequently swear, use vulgar hand gestures, and call each other names. Characters also use anti-gay slurs from time to time. This is a satire of high school life, but the satire might be lost on younger viewers. The film also touches on the issue of whites' appropriation of black culture.

Sexual Content

Sexual insinuations. In a cheerleading dream sequence, a character's top falls off and the entire school sees it. Cheerleaders are shown scantily clad in the locker room. A male cheerleader makes an oral sex gesture with his mouth and hand. While male cheerleaders raise female cheerleaders into the air, one of the male cheerleaders gets his fingers close enough to a female cheerleader's vagina to make her moan in barely concealed pleasure. A male cheerleader new to college is shown waking up in his dorm room with a girl in his bed.


A cheerleader falls from a human pyramid and lands on her head, requiring a ambulance trip to the hospital on a stretcher. A cheerleader is shown covered in blood while her coach tells her how she did the routine wrong.


Name-calling on the order of "slut," "whore," and "dick." Some profanity: "s--t," "ass," "bitchin." Homophobic slurs are thrown around: "fags," "dykes," one character asks others if someone else is "dykeadelic." Early in the film, a new student to a class is bullied by football players who cough out the word "loser" several times.

Social Behavior

It's better to win on your own terms instead of cheating to win.


During a cheerleading contest, different brands are featured prominently throughout the gymnasium: Jansport, VanCamp's, Marshall's, Visa.
