Taglines: * Why would the most popular girl in school wear a mask? * Get ready to cheer for the bad girls.
For the Lincoln High School A-Squad, cheering comes easy. It's the bank robbery that's gonna be tough. From the Academy Award winning producer of Forrest Gump and Stepmom comes a deliciously naughty tale of a team that takes cheerleading to a whole new location - with far more lucrative benefits! Mena Suvari (American Beauty), Marla Sokoloff (Dude, Where's My Car?), Melissa George (Mulholland Drive) and hearthrob, James Marsden (X-Men), star in the criminal comedy that everyone's rooting for, Sugar And Spice!
"Sugar & Spice" is an over the top, almost spoof like teen comedy. It was made on a budget of $11m and grossed over $13million at the US box office. The story is partially narrated and is about a group of cheerleaders, but not the type of cheerleaders we expect; one has an obsession with TV talk show host Conan O'Brien and the group watch "Point Break", "Heat" & "Reservoir Dogs" in preparation for a bank robbery. The film's finale sees the cheerleaders stage what becomes known as "The Betty Doll Bank Robbery". The girls wear blond haired girlie mask, carry their guns in gift boxes and are dressed in garments that resemble the American flag. "Sugar & Spice" is a shorter than average film (78 minutes), it has some interesting characters and features some amusing moments but ultimately it is hit and miss.
Zesty teen satire in which Marley Shelton, the top cheerleader at Lincoln High, becomes pregnant by school football star James Marsden. After being abandoned by their folks and toiling at low-pay jobs, Shelton hatches a plan with sisters-in-pep Rachel Blanchard, Melissa George, Sara Marsh, Marla Sokoloff and Mena Suvari to rob the supermarket bank where she works. The gals prepare by watching crime movies on video and from Suvari's convict mother (Sean Young). Widescreen; deleted scenes; theatrical trailer.
