Go To

Cheerleaders: We! Are driving! We! We! Are driving!
Nick: Do you think the bus crashed and we went to heaven?
Shawn: No because then we would have heard "We! Are crashing! We! We! Are crashing!"

Fired Up is a 2009 film about two football stars who decide to get into a cheerleading squad, in order to attend a cheering camp to hook up with as many girls as they can and leave before the camp-end competition. Then one of them falls for the squad captain and the other for a camp instructor, and they decide to stay, but get caught and expelled, and have to work around a way to get back into the camp.


This film provides examples of:

  • Ambiguously Gay: Nick has his strange moments like his knowledge of recipes, his romantic writing, his squickily shocking phrases about how straight he is. Shawn and Straight Gay Downey expect him to come out.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Silvya often repeats, "I'm just saying."
    • Shawn's "You've gotta risk it to get the biscuit."
  • Character Development: The boys change from players to sensitive, caring friends to the girls and even romantic suitors during the camp. If they weren't just pretending to be jerks all along.
  • The Cheerleader: Completely averted with everyone else, but the Panthers are the cover girls of the trope as stated.
  • Chekhov's Skill: The Fountain of Troy.

  • Clingy Costume: The mascots have really tight costumes and they never take off them. Even when they're skinny dipping.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Cluster S-Bomb. The coach really likes the word "shit". Nick and Shawn made a game out of trying to guess how many times he can say it in one conversation.
