Stick It

Synopsis: Haley Graham is a former gymnast-turned-juvenile delinquent who, after one too many run-ins with the law, is forced to enroll at an elite gymnastics academy, the VGA in Houston, Texas which is run by the legendary Olympic gymnast Burt Vickerman. But the rebellious Haley is not welcomed into the academy by the other teenage gymnasts who despise her for walking out on her Junior Olympic team years earlier during a competition which cost them the gold medal. But Haley is not a docile person either and makes every effort to provoke conflicts with the other girls. Vickerman takes it upon himself to coach Haley in his own way to make her regain her self respect for the VGA's coming spot on the Gymnastic Nationals.

No. No, no. Sorry, bro.

This casa's not su casa.

No way.

Get out.

There's like

six other empty pools.

- That aren't as deep.

- You're not that good.

Off this roof,

onto the slide

and into the pool stays.

[ Fall Out Boy:
I Slept

With Someone in Fall Out Boy

And All I Got Was This

Stupid Song Written About Me]

- Let's do it!

- Go, GC!

Yo, let me

use your phone.

Why? It's gonna be done

by the time anyone gets here.

I'm not

gonna call anyone.

I'm gonna take some shots

of the blood.

You OK?

Now the alarm goes off?

Guys, guys, guys,

gots to go! Leave it!

Let's go,

let's go, let's go!

This isn't

the first time

I've made out

with law enforcement.

We've kinda had

this ongoing flirtation.

We've been on some dates.

You know, broken up,

got back together.

But honestly, until now...

...I haven't been ready

for anything steady.

You're pushing it, Haley.

But, you know,

people change.

And I felt like

maybe I was ready

for a more

serious courtship.

Meet the court.

It looks to be about, uh,

14,000 in property damage.

Haley, I assure you

that juvenile incarceration

is not as much fun

as it sounds.

So we're going to

give you one more chance.

Your father is willing

to subsidize two options...

- I'll take her, Your Honor.

- Over my dead body.

Ya dumped us, remember?

The Texas Military Academy

or a facility called VGA.

Are you crazy?!

This is not OK. VGA?!

Let me have custody,

Your Honor.

- Alice!

- All right, now stop this, both of you.

Haley, I leave it

to you to decide.

Where would you like to go?

Texas Military Academy,

Your Honor.

- VGA it is.

- What?


my worst nightmare.

Brice! VGA, are you crazy?

Don't do this to her!

So it's about

a three-hour drive.

Take as much time

as you need.

Where's my sh*t?

Right there.

So you're just dumping me?

Huh? Just giving up

and not even talking to me?

You're the one

that gave up, Haley.

Guess you learned that

from your mom.

Don't send me to VGA.

And what do you think

I should do? Huh?

I don't know what

to do with you.

You used to be

such a good kid.

That's so interesting.

You used to be

a good dad.

Guess we're even.

- Cracker!

- Cracker, wait up!


Dude, you

didn't name names.

I would never

do that to you guys.

- So, what happened?

- Yeah, where you goin'?

Uh... juvy.

Outside of Houston.

- Can we visit?

- Yeah, when you bust me out.

Know how I feel.

Consider it done.

Well done.

Charred to a crisp.

- OK, we have to go, guys.

- Wait, wait. Take my phone.

Use it if they

don't take it.

- What are you gonna use?

- I'll steal my brother's.

I got really good shots

of that jump.

- That sh*t was legendary.

- Off the hook!

Later, Cracker!


- Did you catch that?

- What?

That I'm totally

her favorite?

Dude, why do you always gotta

bite my moment? It taste good?


Anybody home?

Anybody care?


Otherwise known as the

Vickerman Gymnastics Academy.

There's only one thing worse

than having no control

over your life.

It's being forced to live it

with people who hate you.

And I was suddenly the filling

in the middle

of an "I hate you" sandwich.

Meet the bread.

Ladies, read my mind.

Read my mind, ladies.

Burt Vickerman used to

whip up the best gymnasts

west of the Mississippi.

That is, until his gym

starting producing

more injuries than champions.

We'd never met, and I'd been

hoping to keep it that way.

Is my mind saying "relax"?

Maybe you can read my mind,

and it's completely lost.

Have I lost my mind?

Is that why you're

staring off into space?
