Stick It

Stick It is Released

Stick It, a Touchstone Pictures comedy about competitive gymnastics, first leapt on to movie screens on this day in 2006. Independent 17-year-old Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) is deft at defying both authority and the laws of gravity. Haley’s single dad finds it next to impossible to keep his teenage daughter in line (or simply at home, for that matter). For her and her neighborhood-cruising, dirt-bike-riding pals, there is no jump or course around that’s too intense for Haley to try—just dare her. So when her latest joyride results in a short trip to juvenile court, the judge hands down her sentence: Rebellious Haley has to do time at Vickerman Gymnastics Academy, an elite academy run with military regimentation by legendary and hard-nosed coach Burt Vickerman (Jeff Bridges). So it’s back to rules, back to conformity, back to spandex for Haley… bummer.
