But I’m a Cheerleader: Party Like It’s 1999

Our Party Like It's 1999 series celebrates 25 years of an essential modern classic -- Jamie Babbit's 1999 rom-com, But I'm a Cheerleader!

Megan (Natasha Lyonne) is an all-American girl. A cheerleader. She has a boyfriend. But Megan doesn't like kissing her boyfriend very much. And she's pretty touchy with her cheerleader friends. Her conservative parents worry that she may be (gasp!) a lesbian and send her off to "sexual redirection" school, where she must, with other lesbians and gays, learn how to be straight, unless Megan encourages her peers to reject the cause for conversion.

Using intensely saturated costume and production design to illustrate its deconstruction of heteronormativity, Babbit lends But I'm a Cheerleader a naturally distinct touch that continues to resonate deeply today.
