This movie was awful. I was hoping it would be so much better than it was. With a name like "Ninja Cheerleaders" I was thinking it would be a homerun. Also to add to my heartache and dismay, these girls were also strippers. So they were ninjas, cheerleaders and strippers.....and the movie still sucked.
First things first, a pet peeve of mine is when strippers in movies never get naked. It sort of defeats the purpose. Sorry, my macho inner child is coming out. I could forgive this if they cheered more or were ninjas more. Nope we the viewers do not get that either. Instead we are given some lame subplot about how these girls need to save money so they can all go to the same college together. And the conflicts of these girls personalities play out like a bad soap opera. And when we actually do see some fighting, it is lackluster.
Now there is some good news, yet it is tainted with bad news. George Takei and Michael Paré are both in this flick but are sadly underused. I believe giving them bigger roles and/or more purpose it could have elevated this film. At the end of the day, this movie tries awfully hard to be a cult classic and it is just......sucks.

Featuring STAR TREK icon George Takei, VIRGIN SUICIDES actor Michael Pare, and SURREAL LIFE starlet Trishelle Cannatella, NINJA CHEERLEADERS is the story of three high schoolers leading double lives. By day, the girls are grade-grubbing, cheer-leading honor students, but by night they are fierce ninjas. This release combines comedy and action for a fresh approach.
