''Stick It'' is the story of 17-year-old Haley Graham, a former world-level gymnast, who is thrust back into the world of gymnastics as a sentence from her run-in with the law for vandalism. She ends up at Vickerman Gymnastics Academy, where Coach Burt Vickerman persuades her to compete in an upcoming invitational, and to use the winnings to help pay off some of the property damage. Haley's presence is badly received by her fellow competitors, and so instead of practicing with the group, she practices on her own out in the old gym. Haley likes to perform wild and extreme tricks, not "cookie-cutter routines", but has a hard time controlling them, and sticking her landings. She ends up having to go to Vickerman for help.

Haley and her teammates eventually make it to the National Championship. When one of the girls, Mina, is denied her rightful '10' for the reason of having a bra-strap showing (an ancient and rarely-invoked rule, only brought up because of Mina's teacher), the other girls band together in an attempt to fight the judging system. As a whole, they choose who has the best routine for an event, and allow that girl to do her full routine, while all others forfeit their chances, effectively choosing the winners and breaking the system.

* CastTheExpert: Quite aside from the NCAA and elite gymnasts filling in the supporting and extras ranks, Tricia Skilken was played by former senior elite gymnast Tarah Paige, and Mina Hoyt by Division I NCAA gymnast Maddy Curley.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Gymnastics fans will recognize Nastia Liukin, the girl [[spoiler:chosen to win the bars event]], [[EarlyBirdCameo two years before she became a superstar at the 2008 Olympics]], and keen viewers will also spot 2004 Olympic All-Around Champion Carly Patterson at the end of the film.



* RealitySubtext: Nastia Liukin was, in fact, the real-life U.S. Uneven Bars Champion in 2006 -- for the second time in a row.

* SpiritualPredecessor: To ''MakeItorBreakIt''.
* TheSnarkKnight: Haley, so much.
* TalentDouble: Of course. But the talent doubles are very, very good, and the additional competitors at both competitions were virtually all either NCAA or elite amateur gymnasts - including names like Nastia Liukin, Mohini Bhardwaj, and Allana Slater. Tarah Paige (Tricia Skilken), a former senior elite gymnast, did her own stunts, as did Liukin.

* ShownTheirWork: When Haley lists off the named skills (aka "insanely high mountains") she is training - Geinger, Rulfova, Chusovitina, Shaposhnikova - the skills she is shown performing correspond exactly with the name of the gymnast who first performed them. For instance, when the narration says 'Chusovitina', Haley is seen doing a full-twisting double backflip dismount from the uneven bars, a skill which Oksana Chusovitina had named after her.[[note]]Specifically, the dismount Chusovitina debuted was a "full-out" -- a double backflip with a full twist on the second flip.[[/note]]

In the film Haley actually performs a full-''in''; however, real-life limitations -- namely, that only a scant handful of gymnasts have performed a full-out dismount since Oksana Chusovitina debuted it in the '90s -- certainly make this "error" forgivable.[[/note]]
