Ninja Cheerleaders (2008) is an action/comedy written and directed by David Presley for Peace Arch Entertainment, Shoreline Entertainment and MercuryBar Productions in association with High Fidelity Films. Starring Trishelle Cannatella, Ginny Weirick, Maitland McConnell, George Takei, Michael Paré, Omar Dorsey, Max Perlich, and Natasha Chang.
April, Courtney, and Monica are wild, beautiful and intelligent college freshman cheerleaders, but when they put their pompoms down, these girls turn into deadly weapons. Trained as ninjas by Sensei Hiroshi (George Takei), they spend their days studying and their nights stripping to pay their way through college. But when their Sensei is kidnapped by the mob, the girls must turn to their secret ninja skills to help save him. Along the way they’ll have to dodge a nosy cop, keep their parents at bay and to top it off, defeat a slew of mafia hitmen. Cheerleading is no easy game, especially when you’re ninjas!
Girls, guns or zombies? Ninja cheerleaders, samurai swords and George Takei!

Ninja Cheerleaders, not to be confused with Cheerleader Ninjas (2002), is a not-so-badly-acted, not-too-poorly-produced action/comedy! Ninja Cheerleaders is not as bad as you might think! In fact, it’s quite a fun little dumb movie! I love mafia boss Victor Lazzaro’s evil ninja girlfriend Kinji (Natasha Chang)! She kicks ass and refers to herself in third person! Oh, and Ginny Weirick (April) is so adorable!
