Megan is an all-American girl. She's a cheerleader and has a boyfriend, but she doesn't like kissing him very much, and she's pretty tactile with her cheerleader friends, and she only has pictures of girls up in her locker. Her parents and friends conclude that she *must* be gay and send her off to "sexual redirection" school, full of admittedly homosexual misfits, where she can learn how to be straight. Will Megan be turned around to successful heterosexuality, or will she succumb to her love for the beautiful Graham?Written by

During the bar scene, Megan removes her sweater at the bar. She goes to dance, and then leaves through the back door in a huff, whereupon her sweater magically reappears. See more »
Have you ever had a boyfriend?
Yes. For 2 years, we've been going steady. And I really love him. He's smart, and popular...
And he's got the biggest dick I've never seen.
Well, um, have you ever - had sex with him?
I'm a Christian.
It's really easy to be a prude when you're not attracted to him, isn't it?

Two scenes were removed from the movie to obtain an "R" rating. The two scenes were:
There was a much more longer version of Megan masturbating.
The sex scene between Megan and Graham was toned down because it was much too explicit and would have caused the movie to receive a "NC-17" rating.
I was fortunate enough to catch "But I'm a Cheerleader" last night, and I must say the only thing that bothered me was the fact that I hadn't stumbled upon it sooner.
Megan Bloomfield is a beautiful blonde, who seems to have the life that every girl has once dreampt of. She is a popular cheerleader, dating the captain of the football team. All seems well until she arrives home from school one day. Megan's family and friends confront her, and in classic Intervention fashion proceed to tell her what they KNOW to be the truth: That she is a repressed lesbian. She is sent into a "Rehab" program ran by "Reformed" gays and lesbians. What could possibly go wrong?
I believe it is worth mentioning that this film has an early John Waters feel to it. Mink Stole, who has been in every John Waters movie beginning in 1966, plays the role of Megan's Mother Nancy.
If campy humor and love catch your eye, check it out. It might make you think a little, and it's sure to give you a few laughs.
