We gave it a B

Perpetually perky high school cheerleaders rob a bank to help a cash-strapped unwed pregnant teen (Marley Shelton) — who happens to be captain of the team. This jokey, blowsy comedy isn’t well shaped, but it’s fun in its raunchy unwieldiness. Great casting: Sean Young as the jailbird mama of one pep-squad bad girl (Mena Suvari), happy to share helpful heist tips with her daughter. B
