  • Both Steve and Laura have to prove themselves to groups that they desperately want to be accepted to.

    Laura is not used to being snubbed, and although she does make the cheerleading squad, her fellow upperclassmen cheerleaders consider the lone freshman the bottom of the barrel and treat her as such. Though it is clear that the ring leader of this is Cassie Lynn, the other girls, even the ones who like Laura, just go along with it for fear of being alienated. Steve is no stranger to exclusion and ridicule so it is no surprise when he fails to make the basketball team, even though he keeps assuring everyone that he is "really good." The try-out scene was so, so funny to me. The coach is a trip. There was no way he could've made the team because no one would give him a chance to showcase his skills. It is up to both him and Laura to each prove themselves to their respectives teams, which Steve gets a chance to do when his teammates drop like flies during a game, and Laura steals an opportunity during a time-out to showcase her cheer-writing skills.
