Jena Sims in Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader (2012)

Not Such a Treat

At Iron Coast University Cassie Stratford (Jena Sims) wants to not only join the cheerleaders but also become part of Data Moo. Unfortunately she doesn't have the looks and is much better in the science department where she is working on a formula to turn ugly into cute. After another humiliation at the hands of Brittany (Olivia Alexander) and the Data Moo sisters Cassie sneaks into the lab and injects herself with some formula. When she wakes up the next morning she not only discovers she doesn't need glasses but she has turned in to a big breasted babe. But there are a couple of tiny problems, not only did the formula drip on a spider but Cassie keeps getting taller and more buxom and it isn't stopping.

As I looked through the cast list of "Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader" there were some familiar names such as Treat Williams and Sean Young who to be frank were not the sort of names I expected to see in what looked like an exploitation movie. Then further down the list I spotted the names John Landis, Ted Raimi and Roger Corman which at that point I was pretty sure that "Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader" was just another exploitation movie, the sort which horny young boys seek out because every other scene will feature a hot young actress in a bikini or cheerleader gear and occasionally naked.

For that reason let me say now that "Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader" doesn't have much of a storyline and what there is is based on cliches from Cassie wanting to be a cheerleader to the bitchy Brittany who tries to make her life hell. Oh there is a giant spider for a while but I can't lie and tell you there is much story. Nope instead we have weak comedy and every other scene featuring attractive women in skimpy underwear and swimwear. Oh there is the humour to start with of Jena Sims trying to look like a geek but the minute she takes the formula it is all about her being a babe who gets taller and more buxom. That is it, so yes there is the story about finding a cure but as I said that is not what the focus of the movie is.

What this all boils down to is that "Attack of the 50ft Cheerleader" is everything it looks like it is and so it is a move for teenage boys who will enjoy that every other scene features bikini clad actresses as well as some nudity and Treat Williams yodelling, you will have to watch to appreciate that one.
