* FirstInstallmentWins: The term "the original and best" is widely considered to apply with ''Bring It On'', although ''Bring It On: All Or Nothing'' is felt to be the best of the sequels ([[Creator/HaydenPanettiere in part because]] [[Creator/{{Rihanna}} of who appears]]). To be fair, all the films are stupid and fun to watch. But the original is genuinely good and charming.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: One of the few things all five movies have in common - several name actresses dressed up in cheerleader outfits that show plenty of skin. Notably the first film's outfits BareTheMidriff - something which is ''not'' allowed on high school teams.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The extremely popular theory that Courtney and Whitney are, in fact, speaking the truth when they describe Missy as an Uber-Dyke, and that therefore the ending is a classic case of DidNotGetTheGirl, with a side order of IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy.
* {{Anvilicious}}: Especially the first movie.

other girls hyping her up. Is Whitney just blind to her sister's badness? Or is Jamie normally much better and she was just nervous trying out in front of the older girls?

BileFascination: Everything after the first movie.
* ClicheStormClicheStorm: Most of the sequels do retreads of the first film's plot - usually with an anti-racism Aesop tacked on.



* {{Narm}}: Some of the more serious monologues.
* HarsherInHindsight: the name of the Clovers captiain, Isis, from the first movie. Due to recent ... Events, it's kind of unfortunate.
* HilariousInHindsight: ''In It To Win It'' features Jennifer Tisdale, a few years later her sister [[Music/AshleyTisdale Ashley]] [[Series/{{Hellcats}} would put on her own cheerleading uniform]]

** There's a ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' reference, clearly as a nod to Eliza Dushku's role as Faith. Clare Kramer would later star as Glory in Season 5.

* SnarkBait: People love to hate these movies.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The camera angles used in the first film make it very obvious when they switch to a shot of Eliza Dushku's stunt double performing Missy's gymnastics for the team.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: From the fashion to the music, everything about the first film screams late 90s/early 00s00s.
* ValuesDissonance: There is some casual homophobia on the part of some characters. While Whitney and Courtney calling Missy an "uber dyke" is meant to show them as bullies, there is some of this underlying Torrance's relationship with Aaron. He's a fellow cheerleader, quite the CampStraight and shown as a RomanticFalseLead - in contrast to the CoolLoser Cliff. Aaron's college girlfriend even laughs at him when she finds out he was a cheerleader.
* ValuesResonance:
** TheCheerleader was a popular trope in the 90s, painting cheerleaders as either {{Alpha Bitch}}es or ditzy whores - which does have a few UnfortunateImplications since it's a female-dominated sport. The movie shows cheerleading as a genuine athletic pursuit, Missy learns that it's far more challenging than she thought, and the team are shown putting a lot of time and effort into choreographing their routines. Despite the film's goofy tone, it treats cheerleading in a positive way. It treats male cheerleaders pretty well too, rather than stereotyping them all.
** The anti-racism Aesop is thankfully not too {{Anvilicious}} and handled in a good way. No one in the movie is overtly racist but they do become aware of the system in place - Big Red stealing the Clovers' routines because they're too poor to afford to go to competitions parallels abuse of privilege. Torrance tries to invoke WhiteMansBurden by lending the Clovers money to make it to the competition, but they turn it down and raise the money themselves. But they face each other as {{Worthy Opponent}}s. One critic said that the film suggests "race relations could be smoothed and transcended through level-playing-field sports competitiveness."
