The plot is the typical romantic comedy: Harry meets Sally in a bar, they immediately hit it off and it's love at first sight. When he gets home, though, he's surprised by his roommate, who has an engagement ring for him. Harry hears them having sex in the next room, reacts and runs away. When he returns, there's an engagement ceremony and he's set up on a blind date with his co-worker. Meanwhile, Sally has a plane ticket for Paris, a new job and a boyfriend. The journey of their romance is charming and silly, but it's also the story of them finding love in New York.
The movie has many standout elements. First of all, it's a romcom but it's also a love letter to New York City, with its skyline, skyline views and iconic restaurants and clubs. When it was released, it was less a romantic comedy and more a period piece. The title was dropped for the US release as well, though the majority of US films of the time still didn't have that title. Both are important in understanding the film.
He's a sarcastic, intelligent and witty man, and his roommate is pretty much an older, dorky version of Billy Crystal. They both have a hilarious rapport as they write a newspaper column about love and life. The two men talk about everything from sex to the meaning of life, and the movie is packed with them. The film is just so charming and funny, it's hard not to love it.
The first thing you notice is the retro vibe that permeates the film. Billy Crystal is like a '90s version of John Travolta. It's hard to keep a straight face as he's bombastic and silly, but he is also charming and lovable. He and Meg Ryan are perfect for each other, and the chemistry is palpable. For a movie about two men, it's entirely women-driven and they are at the center of the story. The writers surround them with other characters who are all quite amusing and well-written.
Bring It On is more often remembered for the sport parody stunts than the romance. Liza Lapira plays a cheerleader who is forced to act when her team uses stolen cheers and is eventually tricked into joining the cheerleaders who are using them. Ryan began planning for Bring It On while still in high school in her hometown of Buffalo. She wanted to use the film to send a message about how being a cheerleader can be a great experience, while avoiding the negative stereotypes surrounding the field. She wrote the script, drew the sketches and choreographed the stunts with her friends. She also starred in the film as a dancer.
The movie was filmed in Toronto, Ontario. The city has a history with comedy, having been the backdrop for the likes of Who's the Boss, Hot in Cleveland, The Kids in the Hall and Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy.
