STICK IT (2006) GO! 7.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

BringItOn writer Jessica Bendinger wheels out an­other un­con­ven­tional sports flick, pen­ning and di­rect­ing this chirpy tale. The story fol­lows once-ace gym­nast Ha­ley (Missy Pere­grym), who has taken up ex­treme sports. Her death-de­fy­ing an­tics land her in trou­ble with the law, and she’s dis­patched to a gym­nas­tics acad­emy un­der the tute­lage of a griz­zled trainer (Jeff Bridges). You can prob­a­bly de­duce that Ha­ley re­dis­cov­ers her love for the bal­ance beam with the help of her men­tor, just in time for the big cli­mac­tic com­pe­ti­tion. Bendinger is work­ing to a wor­thy for­mula, but StickIt’s am­bi­tion is un­der­cut by some poor dia­logue. ★★★
