After a cheerleader (Rebel Wilson) falls off a pyramid and into a 20 year coma, she wakes up as a 37-year-old woman, ready to return to high school, regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her.
Okay, here we go. When I was in high school, I had the perfect life. I was already cheer captain.
I had the hot boyfriend. And all that was left was prom queen. There's been a mistake and I'm in the wrong room. Dr. Johnson to the third floor. The cheerleader just woke up. Not to be a bitch, but cheer captain. Cheer captain. Hello? Didn't have the heart to change it. Madonna's now called Lady Gaga? No. No. Everybody else just got to go on and live their lives and I'm supposed to just jump forward? I just found out there's eight more Fast & Furious movies.
I want to go back to school, finish my senior year. They can't let an almost 40-year-old into high school. High school was just like yesterday for me. It will not be weird at all. Where do popular kids sit? -We're all popular. No, there's only three ways to become popular. To be a cheerleader,to work at Abercrombie, or to let guys go in the back door. What? I must be really popular then. I think I've worked this out. You get followers by being somebody everybody likes. -Hey, Steph. Holy shit! -I'm doing a makeup tutorial .For who? Batman villains? Does it ever get exhausting trying to make everybody like you? I'm gonna do something I wish I'd had the confidence to do twenty years ago. Be my real self. Yeah! You might lose prom queen twice.
Don't go chasing waterfalls, Steph. -Slut bag. Possum. Rumpel-slut-skin. What even is this squad? Is there a cheer captain? -I am the cheer captain. -I am the cheer captain. I am the cheer captain. Do you love it? That is the most fucked up thing. -Steph. You turned high school into a Hogwarts without the magic. How dare you? It is like Hogwarts with the magic. I had more fun going like this… than this high school.
