EXTRAS: Commentary with Paul Glickler and Ace Baandige
If I was going to write a sexploitation film of any kind (in this case a comedy) one of the first plot devices I would think of would be cheerleaders. Through high school and college, cheerleaders were the center of most teenage boy's fantasies. They were real girls who you saw everyday while also being the sexual goddesses of your school once they donned that tight top and short, pleated skirt. I guess that's what Paul Glickler had in mind when he wrote and directed 1973's The Cheerleaders. His completely goofy and nearly pornographic sex comedy would also spawn two official sequels; The Swinging Cheerleaders (1974, dir. Jack Hill), Revenge of the Cheerleaders (1976, dir. Richard Lerner) and some would say the Cheerleaders Wild Weekend (1979, dir. Jeff Werner) aka The Great American Girl Robbery would be a good fourth to the series. Glickler directed two other films; another sexploitation flick called Hot Circuit in 1971 and probably his best known movie, Running Scared (1980) starring relative newcomers Ken Wahl and Judge Reinhold.
