6. “Bring It On Again”
Can you not stand your captain? I hope you can, but if not, this movie will give you the push you need to stand up for yourself! Using teamwork and dedication, these cheerleaders take a huge risk, and it pays off!

5. “Bring It On: Fight to the Finish”
An uber-talented cheerleader loses her father and moves to a new place where she starts over. She has to earn her way on to her new school’s cheerleading squad. Add in mean girls, and the circumstances make it difficult to get into a cheerful spirit, but don’t worry, the movie has a feel good ending!
4. “Bring It On: In It to Win It”
We’ve got spirit, yes we do! We’ve got the spirit stick, how ’bout you!? This “Bring It On” movie is the classic cheer camp movie brought to life. What is camp really like? Although the movie may exaggerate the experience, the competition is tough, the tensions are high and your squad’s routine may not cut it… With a musical feel that sets it apart from the others, “In It to Win It” has become a classic in the franchise!
3. “Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack”
The latest cheer movie on the block puts a new spin on “Bring It On”, centering around the “Cheer-lebrities” of the world. It really is a cheer smackdown with the best of the best competing against one another with their own style and edge. Who is the best? You decide! (Bonus: The stars of Worldwide #Cheersmack slayed the cover of iC in August 2017. Get your copy here!)

2. “Bring It On: All or Nothing”
THIS. IS. A. MUST. SEE. “Bring It On: All or Nothing” is another instant classic in the franchise that lets you experience what it’s like to have your cheer world turned upside down. Not only does Rihanna make a cameo, but the drama between the lead (Hayden Panettiere) competing with her new team against her former team for a chance at stardom sets the stage for the ultimate showdown!

1. “Bring It On”
There is just something special about the first “Bring It On” that we can’t seem to let go. The original movie in the franchise was just the beginning of an era and something we like to call “The Real OC” (original cheerleader) movie. What would you do if your former captain stole an inner city school’s routines and YOU had to come up with new choreography from scratch, basically overnight, to have a chance at a national championship?
