Cringey Scenes From 2000s Girl Movies And Shows

by Buzz Street Times

Can someone explain how the Cheetah Girls were able to rescue Toto via song?

1.

In Bring It On: All Or Nothing when Brittany (Hayden Panettiere) thought her already bad krumping would be improved by dancing on Jesse (Gus Carr) in an impromptu dance-off:


Universal Pictures

Just rewatching this scene to get screenshots for this had me suffering from secondhand embarrassment. I truly thought that this was a steamy start to their romance.

2.

In The Cheetah Girls, when Toto joined the CGs (Raven-Symoné, Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams, and Sabrina Bryan) on stage for their talent show audition:


Disney Channel

They’re called the CHEETAH sisters for a reason.

3.

Also in The Cheetah Girls, when Toto fell down the manhole and was rescued by the power of song:


Disney Channel

“tHeY aLl cAmE RuNnInG wHeN YoU sEnT uP tHe ChEeTaH dIsTrEsS sIgNaL.”

4.

In Hellcats, when Marti (Aly Michalka) backed it up on Lewis (Robbie Jons) during the first day of cheer practice:


The CW

What is with the wh*te women of the 2000s grinding on everyone. Someone please explain.

5.

In Picture This, when Mandy (Ashley Tisdale) and Drew (Robbie Amell) slow-danced in the middle of a rambunctious teen party:


ABC Family

I mean, I guess it was Drew’s party, so he could waltz if he wanted to.

6.

In From Justin to Kelly, when Kelly (Kelly Clarkson) and Kayla (Anika Noni Rose) thought these were fire ‘fits to pack on their spring break vacay:


20th Century Fox

Can someone please explain to me what is up with Kelly’s skirt, because I am at a loss for words.

7.

In The Lizzie McGuire Movie, when Paolo (Yani Gellman) paid this compliment to Lizzie (Hilary Duff) while they were watching the fireworks:


Buena Vista Pictures

I thought this was the height of romance as a child — lo and behold, when I rewatched this movie the other week, I almost puked.

8.

In New York Minute, when Roxy (Mary-Kate Olsen) and Jane (Ashley Olsen) got “sistah-fied” in the urban salon:


Warner Bros.

I would love to know how many packs of weave it took to get their hair lookin’ like this.


9.

In Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, when Stu Wolf (Adam Garcia) came to Darla’s (Megan Fox) high school party to give Lola (Lindsay Lohan) her necklace back:


Buena Vista Pictures

I understand how it proved that Lola wasn’t lying about her knowing Stu Wolf, but she’s also, like, a sophomore in high school? And he’s an older rockstar? FedEx would have sufficed.

10.

Also in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, when Stu Wolf slow-danced with Lola at aforementioned high school party:


Buena Vista Pictures

What is the obsession with slow-dancing in the middle of teen parties?

11.

In Sydney White, when Tyler (Matt Long) kissed Sydney (Amanda Bynes) to wake her up in time for the student body president debate:


Universal Pictures

Similar to the fairy tale that it’s based on, CONSENT WOULD BE REALLY IMPORTANT HERE.

12.

In The Clique, when Massie (Elizabeth McLaughlin) thought this was an appropriate outfit to woo her crush with at her parents’ charity auction:


Alloy Entertainment

THANK GOODNESS CUH-LAIRE WAS THERE TO STOP HER FROM EMBARRASSING HERSELF!

13.

In Another Cinderella Story when Mary (Selena Gomez) thought these dance moves were worthy of winning her the dance contest with Joey (Drew Seeley):


Warner Premiere

How this earned her a spot in a music video is beyond my understanding.

14.

In Zoey 101, when Lola was allowed to do this with her hair:


Nickelodeon

This girl had extensions for every color of the rainbow.


15.

In What A Girl Wants, when Daphne accidentally walked onto the runway at the Royal Dress Show, and instead of calmly exiting the catwalk, she decided to strut down the runway before falling into the lap of one of her dad’s colleagues:


Warner Bros.

PARLIAMENT, DAPHNE! YOUR DAD IS IN PARLIAMENT!


16.

In Make It Or Break It, when Payson (Ayla Kell) and Emily (Chelsea Hobbs) ward off the unwanted attention from the Denver delinquents with their sick gymnastics skills:


ABC Family

They really thought they were doing something…

17.

Last, but not least, in Radio Rebel when Tara (Debby Ryan) made this look of seduction at Gavin (Adam DiMarco):

Nostalgia Trip

Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
