It really loaded movie. A lot of F words and other "bad" words. Main character is unpleasant. however if you bare with it in the end it is a movie about how you make yourself better and out of tragedy which drags you down.

Terrible movie! Angry girl thing gets tiresome very quickly! DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS FILM IT'S LOST TIME!

The previews made it look like a light-hearted comedy. It turned out to be about someone with a toxic personality who was perhaps mentally ill. The lead character was very unpleasant to watch and listen to. It went from somewhat amusing to distressing in the first twenty minutes or so, when I pulled the plug.

its the Kerry Strug story but with a new twist. I thought it was pretty funny, with some serious moments but most of all you just have to hate the main character played by Melissa Rouch. I doubt I'd ever watch it again but it had a lot going for it including a raunchy sex scene, so that's how gymnasts do it.

Tons of F words in this comedy drama that exploited the sport of gymnastics and the psychological issues of athletes after debilitating injuries. The acrobatic bedroom scene (simulated, body double and heavily photo-shopped) was shocking but inventive. Highly entertaining if you can stand the raunchy language, catty behaviors and raw sexual references; similar films are "Freeway 1996," "Filth 2013," "Sausage Party 2016," "Why Him? 2016," "The Heat 2013," "Trainwreck 2015," "Get Hard 2015" and most films by Sacha Baron Cohen.

This movie had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt! I used to participate in gymnastics, so the gymnastics humor especially got me. The way the lines were delivered was absolute gold.

Had some pretty humorous moments. Kind of like Midwest "Napoleon Dynamite" plus gymnastics.

Eight minutes of my life I will never get back.

I'm at minute 6 and don't know if I can stand to watch. Very adult content. Can't stand this bratty girl.

The movie did improve slightly... But nearly gave up on it.

I would be mortified to watch this with my parents and I'm in my 30s.

If you've seen "Stick It" or the t.v. movie about Gabby Douglas, the gymnastics route shots and montages are much better in this film.

Rubbish. The best part of the movie was the trailer for it I saw with another film!
It's not a comedy, it's not a drama. It's a wandering pointless mess.

Other: Language. Lots of cursing, vulgar language. Crass.

Apr 27, 2017

Sexual Content: Very adult sex scene. Cliche to ideas surrounding gymnasts. Also sexual language and related situations such as personal gratification, and solicitations.

A sort of commentary of the rise and fall of elite athletes. The tragedy when people have nothing else in their lives to balance them out or to strive for. Also a reflection of the objectification of women and the sad ramifications of a woman's sense of self due to these experiences.
