But I'm a Cheerleader
1999
A "normal" teen cheerleader dating the football captain draws suspicion from parents and friends who think she's gay. Shipped off to a camp designed to shove her back in the closet, she meets a tomboy who helps her recognize her sexual orientation.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Despite having a rich satirical target (gay conversion therapy), this late-90s comedy contains too few jokes, settling for broad caricature and swishy vamping. It's amiable enough and the characters are nice, but I wanted something with a lot more punch to it.

Strangely, there was almost no mention of religion. This might be the only secular gay conversion camp ever founded.
