Stick It, relased in 2006, is a teen comedy-drama about a rebellious teenager forced to return to the world of gymnastics.

Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) is a former champion gymnast, disgraced out of the sport for letting down her team at a crucial competiton. The rebellious young woman forced to once again eneter the regimental field of gymnastics after problem with the law. The judge trying her case sentences her to her ultimate punishment, attending a renowned gymnastics academy run by coaching veteran Burt Vickerman, played by Jeff Bridges.

It’s your regular sports movies but it does do new things with the genre, partly because of the sport involved, and partly through the unconventional reactions of the character to otherwise cliche situations.

Worth a watch, with good doses of sporting red.
