hottie cheerleader meets a man from mental asylum
15 November 2009 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

seeing this one Lifetime Movie Network last night i had a blast with it,, i loved the cliques about the dumb blond cheerleader in this one,, although as the movie starts to gather steam you see that the little cheerleader girl ain't so dumb... what strikes you as odd is the whole why did the guy go after her,, my guess is he bought into all of the blonde dumb cheerleader jokes. he is kinda pathetic,, but then sometimes you find yourself end up rooting for him,, i really liked the character of the man's parole officer,, she was bound and determined to get to the bottom of things in this movie,, he tells the cheerleader a bunch of lies that he works for the government and that he is a spy of something like that,, and she believes it for awhile,, or does she,, is she setting him up,, or is she really that freakin stupid,,,, watch and find out.
