This predictable teen movie combines cheerleading and dancing but does not add a viable storyline or characterization to carry the entertainment past those activities. The plot centers on a competition between high-school cheerleading squads -- and one squad in particular, the Moline Ducks, is definitely abysmal. The competition takes place at a camp run by middle-aged Bucky Berkshire (John Karlen), who this year decides to place a bet with his best instructor Tom Hamilton (Stephen Shellen) that he cannot make the woeful Ducks into a team that can beat the top-rated Falcons. If Berkshire loses, he pays up $10,000, and if Hamilton loses, he has to work another five years at the camp. As the teams get ready for their rounds of competition, several dance sequences, various teen pranks, and the usual sexual situations weave their way through the storyline.
