FANTASTIC ENDING
Verified purchase
Rebellious teens, who are all really nice, lose one their own when she does a bike trick that ends up in a spectacular crash (no one hurt) and is made to return to something she ran away from years ago as her punishment from the Judge. No one knows her real reason for leaving and it is near the end that we find out.

The gymnastics are fun, colorful and breathtaking to watch.

Haley's two male friends are really nice guys, making it the weirdest gang of outcasts around, and make a girl realize that her mother has deprived her of her childhood and teen years. She isn't about to give up gymnastics, but maybe one cool thing in a teen girl's life can still be lived. All done without drama but showing she is large and in charge for once. Great backstory.

The ending is a cool surprise to the usually pat endings. How can everyone be a winner? Watch and find out.

And for those of my age who remember Alice the TV series...hey, Judge, "kiss my grits!"

High octane energy!

Missy Peregrym rocked in this movie. Good to see Jeff Bridges in a good movie also. I had no idea about a lot of the politics in Gymnastics. Extreme Gymnastics at that. I love the opening scenes and the following story. Stay with it, it only gets better. A lot of familiar faces to enjoy. Ends well. Lots of funny scenes, some graphic humor, curse words and rude humor. However is that not realistic for humans at this stage of their life? I highly recommend anyone, any age who likes skateboarding, gymnastics and synchronized moves. I was not sure why this movie was titled the way it was until I found out. This is a great movie. Enjoy!! :)

and rebellious lead resinates with anyone whose every felt like the whole world was against them

Hilarious, sarcastic. As a former gymnast, this movie speaks to me on many levels. I have watched it over and over again. The jokes are geared more towards older audiences and there are some inside jokes you won't necessarily understand if you weren't a gymnast, but it is still enjoyable if you weren't. The strong, sassy, and rebellious lead resinates with anyone whose every felt like the whole world was against them. I will be watching this over and over again for years to come.

Worth Watching and Listening
Verified purchase
I am not a movie critic, so maybe the story line isn't thrilling, or whatever you may have wished for.
The photography and post production editing is excellent, imagine having to go from young actress, cut to really advanced gymnasts and back again, music fit was timed beautifully, best enjoyed with a decent headset.
It does portray many of the situations I have had the opportunity to witness close up, having had family participating in National roller skating competitions. The judging includes not only technical ability but includes your outfit, choice of music, etc.. Even if your ability has been perfectly displayed that may not get the score you may have really deserved. Interesting opportunity to observe up close for several years.

watchable teen coming of age movie featuring a strong female lead who's a gymnastics whiz
Verified purchase
I am a sucker for teen coming of age movies. this was fun, had strong female characters and I felt good about my own teens watching it. It was cool to have some for-real elite gymnasts in supporting roles. The camera work makes the non-gymnast actors look like the real thing. lite. fun. don't over think it.

Awesome!

Stick it is a fun movie to watch with teenagers, especially if they are interested in sports and have lived through the arduous work-outs of gymnastics.

The main character, Haley Graham, beautifully played by Missy Peregrym, is a troubled teen who walked out of a competition because her family was coming apart, but her friends think she simply quit, giving up her right to win first place. A rather amazing pirouette on a bike lands her in trouble with the police, and she is sentenced by a judge to either go to juvenile detention or to a gymnastics camp, and she soon finds herselfe under the tutelage of Burt Vickerman, played by Jeff Bridges, a trainer that is tough, demanding, will take nothing from her, and sees through her every manipulation.

Burt Vickerman has the reputation of getting all his students injured, but as he says... "he has insurance to cover it." A love hate relationship is evident between coach and gymnast and soon we see Haley training to her potential, which is excellent. The other gymnasts are excellent characters, with some routines leaving us spell bound by their grace and aptitude. The battle between coach and student, between coach and judges, between a system of judging that leaves audiences upset by their lack of fairness are awesome. Don't miss this movie!

I wanted to be a gymnast when I was little and I was also really into the X-Games for a while, so when I saw this movie I was floored to see this punk biker chick who is also an elite gymnast with a cameo by Nastia Liukin - I just love it! The other girls are so funny, even when it's stupid-funny, and the family drama element kind of throws you an emotional curveball.
