Synopsis:
Megan Williams (Natasha Lyonne) is a good Christian cheerleading girl, but perhaps she's taking her love of her team mates a step too far! Noticing her unorthodox leanings, Megan's parents arrange on intervention, sending her off to New Directions, a sexual rehabilitation camp run by a hilariously straight-laced school madam, Mary. But on a strict regime of corrective therapy, Megan falls head over heels for surly dyke, Graham (Clea DuVall) and is forced to reassess whether straight is really all that is great....

Worth watching - But I'm a Cheerleader review by SB

Spoiler Alert
20/04/2023

This 1999 film set in small-town America was an early entry in the 'teen goes to gay conversion therapy camp and finds a friend' genre. But although subsequent efforts have been better, this one is still worth watching. Of course the subject offers some very easy targets for satire as well as crude humour, and this film's particular approach is to enhance the joke by relentless mocking of sexual stereotypes, use of garish pink and blue, camping it all up and so on.

The cast is mostly fine. Natasha Lyonne is adequate in the lead role, beset with stupid parents and treacherous friends. Michelle Williams is touted in the cast list, but her role as cheerleader team captain is tiny. Clea DuVall is seriously hot as the surly and subversive dyke Graham. A decent (?) way to spend a spare 90 minutes.
