Stick It Synopsis

The writer of the hit comedy Bring It On, takes on the world of competitive gymnastics in STICK IT. Haley Graham (MISSY PEREGRYM) is a rebellious 17 year-old who is forced to return to the regimented world of gymnastics after a run-in with the law. A judge sentences Haley to her ultimate nightmare -- attending an elite gymnastics academy run by legendary hardnosed coach Burt Vickerman (JEFF BRIDGES). Haley's rebellious spirit and quick-witted banter quickly shakes things up at the strict school making both close friends and bitter foes along the way. Haley surprises herself as she discovers an unexpected ally in the form of her new coach, and learns respect is a two-way street. Haley, Vickerman, and a group of his elite athletes band together to confront a major championship and prove that loyalty, friendships and individual athletes matter more than rules, judges or scores.

Say what you want about the work of Jeff Bridges, but at least he makes interesting choices. In the past decade he’s done everything from K-Pax to Seabiscuit. He’s worked for the Coens and Terry Gilliam. The guy doesn’t get a lot of credit, but over his long, varied career he’s proven himself time and again as one Hollywood’s very best actors. The guy deserves a mantle full of Oscars.

So what’s the star of Tucker: A Man and His Dream doing in a teen movie like Stick It? How can someone who played Starman, a Fabulous Baker Boy, The Dude, and Master Control killer Flynn end up coaching rebellious teen gymnasts in a movie that bears a really uncomfortable resemblance to Bring It On? Bridges’ presence in this movie is utterly confusing. Could he possibly be taking a cue from Kurt Russell, and playing the gymnastics version of Herb Brooks? His presence is almost enough to get me interested in it; or at least it was until I saw the trailers, which confirmed it as another annoying rebel teen overcomes the odds movie. This isn’t Miracle.

Instead, it’ll take a miracle for Stick It to be good, Jeff Bridges’ credibility notwithstanding. It’s written and directed by the screenwriter of Aquamarine, First Daughter, and yes, Bring it On. That’s enough to cancel out anything The Dude brings to the picture.
