BIO Week: Anticipating the Next Bring It On Sequels


As I mentioned in yesterday's critical assessment of the cheer lexicon, The Bring It On Tetralogy gets much of its artistic power and significance from being au currant or of the cultural moment in which they are produced. The most recent films, in fact, have been made so quickly, that they have been able to capitalize on many current trends, including not only fashion, but also recent catchphrases that have not yet lost their currency. That is especially evident in the titles of the last two films: Bring It On: All or Nothing (originally titled Bring It On Yet Again) and Bring It On: In It to Win It. With that in mind, I thought it would be useful to brainstorm more possible titles for future Bring It On sequels, using current catchphrases and other slang.

Bring It On: Talk to the Hand
Bring It On: Pwned!
Bring It On: Whatevs
Bring It On: Fo Shizzle
Bring It On: Mad Skillz
Bring It On: All Up in Your Grill
Bring It On: Oh No You Di'in't!
Bring It On: Been There, Done That
Bring It On: Your Mom
Bring It On: That's What She Said
Bring It On: I'm a Grower, Not a Show-er
Bring It On: My Bad
Bring It On: It's All Good
Bring It On: You're Fired
Bring It On: Outside the Box
Bring It On: Fair and Balanced
Bring It On: What's in Your Wallet?
Bring It On: I Drink Your Milkshake
Bring It On: Friend-O
Bring It On: Change We Can Believe In


Recently, Chris over at the ISB and I were having one of our daily conversations about how great the Bring It On movies are. This discussion ultimately led to both of us imagining that the franchise could be even further extended by mashing it up with other movies. Below is an actual transcript of the conversation, as it really happened:

Dr. K: LIVE FREE OR BRING IT ON
ISB: Oh shit.
ISB: OH SHIT.

Scream, Bring It On, Scream totally wrecked my shit.

You had me at "Live Free or Bring It On".

Not only will none of the other titles top that, I think it's safe ot say that nothing else in life will top that. Ever.

I'm going to commit sepukku now to spare myself the disappointment that only awaits now that I have experienced the absolute pinnacle of human civilisation. It's all downhill from here, folks.
