Britney Allen (Creator/HaydenPanettiere, playing a cheerleader for the first [[Series/{{Heroes}} but not]] [[Film/ILoveYouBethCooper the last]] time) is living the white cheerleader's dream. At the elite (meaning that there is only one non-white student, and that student knows martial arts because she's Asian) seaside campus of Pacific Vista High School, Britney is captain of the cheerleading squad and the envy of everyone at school -- especially one overly-ambitious teammate. When Britney hears about a forthcoming audition for a top cheer squad to appear in [[SpecialGuest Rihanna]]'s upcoming television special, she is determined that her Pirates cheer squad will capture the coveted spot. But Britney's life turns from cheer-phoria to cheer-tastrophe when her father's job takes her family to Crenshaw Heights, a darkly ethnic working-class neighborhood east of Los Angeles. At her new school, Britney is viewed with suspicion by most of the dark-skinned students, especially by Camille, the overly confident and acerbic black leader of the ethnic Crenshaw Heights Warriors cheerleading squad. No one is more surprised than Camille, however, when "white girl" Britney proves herself and secures a spot on the ethnic Warriors' ethnic cheer squad. The two other non-black students being a heterosexual cheerleader Latino beefcake love interest, as well as a Latina who speaks half of her dialogue in Spanish. Britney and her new teammates work feverishly to prepare the audition for Rihanna, incorporating some edgy new moves into their performance. Now the pressure is on, as the Warriors find themselves locked in a high-stakes cheer-off with Pacific Vista, Britney's old school! During the no-holds-barred fight to the finish, friendships, loyalties and talents are tested -- but only one team can come out on top! This installment is renowned for being the most similar to ''Film/MeanGirls''. This entry is also notable for having two former [[Series/GuidingLight Lizzie Spaulding]]s in the cast (Hayden Panettiere and Marcy Rylan).

This franchise is mainly about one cheerleading squad [[BringIt squaring off]] against another, both [[SeriousBusiness taking it way too seriously]].

* PacManFever: The first movie had Torrance's brother playing TwistedMetal3, and it looks to avert this trope, as it shows him playing on a PS1, with appropriate sound effects, until he makes another gay joke about her cheerleader boyfriend, where she responds by ripping out his controller so hard it pops the machine open, revealing nothing inside.

** ''In It to Win It'' is the only film to be set at a cheer camp. So naturally the writers peppered the film with ''FridayThe13th'' references (which also takes place at a camp). The opening nightmare scene features a mascot wearing a hockey mask and the rival camp's owner's last name is Voorhees.

* LuckyTranslation: In the first movie, Torrance says "You know, mothers have killed to get their daughters on squads", to which Mrs Shipman replies with "My mother didn't kill anybody. She hired a hit man." The Japanese language allowed for a pun that expressed Mrs Shipman's attitude much more clearly and succinctly:

*** This is eventually addressed in ''All or Nothing'' where a captain defends her use of an illegal move since the competition is a non-sanctioned music video contest.
