Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union headlined the film as the cheer captains of the rival schools. The Clovers’ head cheerleader took to Twitter took to Twitter that she couldn’t believe that it’s already been 20 years since the movie’s release.
The cult classic included the Toros and Clovers struggles to become national champions. Dunst’s character, Torrance Shipman, realized that she was under fire when she learned that the Toros’ cheerleading routines were stolen from the Clovers. Union’s character, Isis, and the Clovers cheerleaders confront Shipman and let her know they ready to participate in nationals.
At the end of the movie, against all odds, the Clovers come out on top and become the national champions.
However, one of the reasons why “Bring It On” is still relevant to the world is its famous quotes.
