REVIEW:

A lot of things happen to the mind when you're watching a B-Movie. And Fired Up is you classic B-movie. Not that there is anything wrong with a film like this as these films are useful and important in today's world.

It's a classic escape movie as you really can't take any of this seriously because:

#1 - All of these high school students are played by people who are really in their late 20s and early 30s.

#2 - Everyone on screen is a very beautiful person. No ugly people allowed.

#3 - The concept is genius and extremely silly at the same time. Genius in that it's a What if? idea that I'm sure we've (at least guys) all thought of in high school, so we might as well make a movie about it. And then it becomes silly because they actually made a movie about it!

So my mind begins to wander. Fired Up brought up a lot of things that I thought I forgot about. It's been 13 years since I was a high school football player but it seems like an entire lifetime ago. I contemplated for about 5 minutes during the first practice of senior year that I perhaps should join to Cheerleading squad instead of playing football so I could pick up chicks. Then I realized that nothing good in the end would come out of it. But it would make for a great concept of a movie!

I never wrote down my concept for 'a great movie' so I had to watch Fired Up 13 years later.

I got sad during this movie because it made me think about two girls who got away.

The first was a Cheerleader with the initials of BB who was into me but I stayed away from because I was with another girl at the time. A girl I shouldn't of been with as BB would of been a better choice to be with during my 'growing years' leading myself into adulthood. She was attractive, smart and really got me, or at least I think she did in those 15 minutes we talked in the backseat of her Mom's car. I didn't make a move and we she did I pulled back because of that other woman. I wish I could go back BB and do it all over again.

One of the main characters in Fired Up is into a cheerleader who looks exactly like another girl that got away. That girl was someone I met on a the film set of Picture Claire (called Claire's Hat during the filming) I was working in 2000 as a PA/security guru. The movie starred Mickey Rourke of all people and Juliette Lewis that ended up going straight to home video. We were filming in Chinatown in Toronto and the Honeywagons were parked on a street a few blocks away. I was hanging on the street when I spotted about 6 very attractive girls going into a home. I tried to get their attention and they eventually flirted back. But there was one girl who stayed back and was offended with my initial moves.

Through the weeks I got to know that girl who stayed back very well. We had great talks while I was at work and she was in her front lawn (only when making a movie) and formed a great connection. But she never wanted to go further with me because of my initial macho moves with her friends. She didn't trust me. And in hindsight she was right. At that time in my life she shouldn't of trusted me. I was what you called 'a player'. I really liked her a lot but the timing wasn't right.

That girl looked exactly like the Sarah Roemer character and because Fired Up the movie wasn't really doing anything for me, I kept thinking about those two girls that got away.

I tried to get back into the movie but it was too late. Fired Up is one of those films that we'll all watch at 2am when we can't sleep but it really doesn't have any other purpose. It will leave the theatres in 2 weeks and no one will even remember it.

But I have to thank Fired Up for bringing back memories for me. I just wished I was as confident as the two leads were in this movie in high school. High School movies always have characters like this. Very confident people who don't take anything that seriously. All I remember was how much I took EVERYTHING seriously in high school and how much everyone around me did too.

Do these confident people actually exist in high school?
