Thank you, O Lord. Such was my reaction after viewing “Bring It On,” a bouncing-with-exuberance tale of high school cheerleaders. Hey, where are you going? Don’t put down the paper just because you bumped into the word “cheerleaders.” Honestly, it’s not that bad.

In fact, it’s a “tale of cheerleader angst” so . . . there you go, walking away again. Listen, sometimes it takes a movie like “Bring It On” to really appreciate adult life, life that has done with high school forever. Those times were hard, even for those of us who didn’t have to wave pompoms, wear tight little sweaters, go out with the captain of the football team and smile for the entire length of our waking hours, ugh. But never mind, all that’s far behind us. We’re adults now. We can sit in front of a computer screen for the rest of our lives, blinking and eating doughnuts.
