Opening this week
HEIGHT="6" ALT="* "> "Sugar and Spice" (PG-13) - The tight bond shared by five high school cheerleaders is strengthened when one of them becomes pregnant. Between schoolwork, cheerleading and Lamaze class, the squad plots a heist to ensure the baby's financial future. Little did they know their antics would become the talk of the nation. Marley Shelton, James Marsden, Mena Suvari, Marla Sokoloff and Rachel Blanchard star in this unladylike black comedy.
