From Amazon.co.uk

Director Jamie Babbit's assured first feature But I'm a Cheerleader is subversive, smart and extremely funny, but not entirely original. Megan Williams (Natasha Lyonne) is a good Christian cheerleading girl. She doesn't think it at all strange that she can't get the image of tumbling cheerleaders out of her mind while her football player boy friend is trying to French kiss her. But her parents, played respectively by Bud Cort (Brewster McCloud) and John Water' s regular Mink Stole, have noticed Megan's odd behaviour and arrange an intervention. They send her off to New Directions, a sexual rehabilitation camp run by a straight-laced school madam, Mary (Cathy Moriarty), where she is forced to come to terms with her lesbian tendencies. But while on a strict regime of corrective therapy, Megan falls head over heels f or surly dyke, Graham--played by Clea DuVall (The Astronaut's Wife)--and is forced to reassess whether straight really is great. The zany script and over-the-top characterisations have the feel of a John Waters comedy; The day-glo sets and costumes give the film a surreal Pee Wee's Playhouse feel and Lyonne is charmingly dizzy and bewildered throughout. RuPaul excels as Mike, a former gay exercise trainer, and Moriarty out-camps them all.

On the DVD: The main feature is presented in letterboxed widescreen with Dolby Digital sound. Extra features are limited to a theatrical trailer and a 10-minute behind-the-scenes look at the film in which director Jamie Babbit explains the genesis of the film followed by hastily assembled footage of random scenes being shot. --Chris Campion

As a young bisexual woman I've found it very hard in the past to find romantic comedies that I can relate to, most gay/lesbian/bisexual targetted films are very serious, intense and often very preachy. This film however, was very romantic, wildy funny and something I could definately relate to. I've watched it over and over again and will continue to do so. RuPaul is fabulous as an "Ex-Gay", Cathy Moriarty is brilliant as a domineering mother trying to turn her obviously camp son into a butch "Real man" and the young gay men in the homosexual rehabilitation camp steal the show. The love story between Natasha Lyonne(American Pie) and Clea Duvall(The Faculty) is very believable and doesn't sensationalise or exploit the lesbian aspect of the relationship, treating it instead with humour and sensitivity to the point where you forget it's two GIRLS falling in love and just see it as two people. I'd recomend this film to anybody, gay, bi or straight this is a must see.

I saw this film about half a dozen times at the cinema, would have been more but it was only on a short run due to late arrival of the print.
"But I'm a Cheerleader" takes the issue of teenaged sexuality and deals with it in a thoughtful and funny way without ever making charicactures of gay and lesbian teens or adults. Sure the stereotypes exist in the film (RuPaul as the exgay in particular), but they are presented in a way that makes you laugh with them rather than at them.
The more intimate scenes are presented in a gentle, non-exploitative and non-sensationalist way, frequently to the beautiful "Glass Vase Cello Case" by Tattle Tale (from "Sew True" on St Francis Records, 1995). Megan and Graham are shown to be two people who have fallen in love and happen to both be girls.
Natasha Lyonne and Clea DuVall (who also took an Executive Producer credit) are excellent and believable in their roles as Megan and Graham.

I had heard about "But I'm a Cheerleader" a few years ago, but I have only just actually watched it; searching around for it for a long time until my friend managed to get hold of it and let me borrow it. He told me I would like this film - and I didn't...I loved it!
This film has a very retro style to it, the main character, Megan, is a cheerleader, who is suspected by her friends and family to be gay. There is a funny scene where "evidence" is produced to show that shes gay! The real fun begins when Megan arrives at "True Directions" - the 'sexual reorientation camp'. From here, we meet several other funny characters; my favourites being the very camp Andre, the (wonderfully acted) woman in charge; Mary J. Brown, and the moody Graham (who is actually a girl!).
What makes this film extra special, is the sensitive way in which it deals with the blossoming relationship between Megan and Graham. There was some angst, and confusion, but also some really touching, emotional scenes shared between them. The acting from the two main leads is second to none. Another reviewer here mentioned that by the time the romantic scenes arrive, (which incidentally are perfectly subtle rather than gratuitous) you really do forget that its two girls, it really does become two people who just happen to be girls.
And, alongside the romance, theres plenty of fun to be had! Lots of innuendo and comedy. One of my favourite funny moments has to be a point where the wonderful Andre is dancing in a gay bar - its a classic film!

I had to watch this movie a second time less than 24 hours after seeing it for the first time!
It's an absurdist satire in the vein of "Zero Patience" - only on homophobia, not AIDS. The targets of "Cheerleader" are the - ok, let's be tolerant - misguided folk who try to 'cure' gays and lesbians back into straight gender roles. This sure isn't a Movie-of-the-Week treatment of the topic - it's a superb comedy with moving performances from the two principals, Natasha Lyonne (the wonderful Jessica in "American Pie I, II") and Clea DuVall ("The Faculty" and "Girl, Interrupted"). And RuPaul as an "ex-gay" suffering terribly from the teasing antics of hunky Eddie Cibrian is a delight.
It's not easy to pick high-lights from a movie that's so on-target from start to end - but the 'simulated sex' part of the 'straightening' therapy, Megan's stricken realization that she might, after all, really be a 'homosexual' and the gender role training should have you in stitches (if not, check your pulse - you could be dead).
And finally, it'd be worth getting this movie just to watch Lyonne and DuVall - move over Helen Shaver and Patricia Charbonneau, THIS is the classic lesbian movie for the new millennium!

Natasha Lyonne plays a cheerleader who isn't really into boys & doesn’t even like kissing her boyfriend. Her parents and friends get suspicious and she's sent off to a place where 'straight is great', a place that aims to de-gay people. The problem is that Clea Duvall is also there and the two fall in love. At True Directions, the boys wear blue, the girls wear pink and the pupils must pass a series of tests in order to graduate hence proving they’ve left their gay life behind.
I absolutely love this film, it’s so funny and the love story is very sweet and genuine. Other great things about it include RuPaul, some rather fantastic characters and the soundtrack.
