Before she was cruising with Lars Von Trier or smooching upside down superheroes in the rain, Kirsten Dunst brought it on in BRING IT ON, the 2000 teen comedy directed by Peyton Reed from a script by Jessica Bendinger.
As Torrance Shipman, Dunst plays the new captain of her high school's cheerleading squad who must rally her team as they go to nationals. Eliza Dushku, Jesse Bradford and Gabrielle Union co-star. The film is a infectiously fun send-up of cheerleading - never relying on mean jabs to the sport, instead playfully sending up the ultma-competeve world of high school cheer squads. Over the years the film has developed is fair share of admires — including critic Roger Ebert and President Barack Obama. Most recently, the film was adapted into a stage musical — a touring version of which recently visited Houston.
This March, we'll be presenting a 35mm print of the film at two Girlie Night screenings. Join us for a fun-filled night with a cult film you can cheer along with. We'll welcome new Houston Girlie Night host Meredith Borders, managing editor of Badass Digest.
