this movie was amazing!!
i give it five stars plus i loved all the gymnastics moves it was amazing! you should watch this movie.
well done AG! this is the best movie yet : )

I loved this movie. I watched this movie in 2012. I loved this movie very much. It was on TV too. Every year it's on YTV. It's sad that McKenna hurt her foot, but you know all she ever cared about was being on the gymnastics team. She didn't care for her schoolwork. Then, her dad said that she has a tutor and she didn't wanted to have one. Her tutor was on a wheelchair and she was helping her catch up on her work for school. Later at school, she was trying to hide from her best friend so she doesn't find out, but her best friend thought that she is getting a new best friend. Later, she saw her in the school library and asked her why she didn't tell her that she has a tutor and she got mad at McKenna for not telling her. Later, her best friend told her that she use to have a tutoer too and that's why she got better grades. Finally, she told her friend that she's sorry and told her that she never told her and she said that McKenna never asked. Later, McKenna introduces her best friend to the girl in the wheelchair. Then, she invites her to go camping with her. In the end, she trains for her gymnastics after her foot was better and she won.

Saige paints the sky is way better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have changed my mind, i believe this is the worst AG movie ever, McKenna was bratty, un great full, and she cheated! this does not portray a good role model. Saige, Felicity, Chrissa, Molly, and Kit are all better movies. and i can't wait for Isabelle's movie. Also, Mckenna reacted at everything, including that she had to have a cast, that it would be on for 8 weeks, a week before the tryouts for the competitive team, and also acted bratty sometimes around Toulane. I would steer clear of this movie.
