Intended to reach the same targeted audience as "BRING IT ON", "STICK IT" doesn't have any of that film's originality or heart. A troubled, attractive tomboy, with a talent in gymnastics butts head with her head of a gymnastics academy she's sent to after getting in trouble with the law. As much as this reviewer likes Jeff Bridges, he deserves much better material than he's been given here. Still, young girls, up to 13, will probably enjoy the film, and that's its core audience.
BUENA VISTA has provided the correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. The detail is great, but color quality varies. Plenty of outdoor scenes present a dull look in comparison to the brightness found elsewhere in the film.
BUENA VISTA provides a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. Surrounds are used to boost the film's score, but are rarely used for effects. The front soundstage offers great separation. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.
