How far would you go to achieve your ultimate dream? Experience the rivalry and romance of four teenage girls on their path to Olympic gold in the original ABC Family series that has fans and critics cheering all across the nation. You'll flip for...MAKE IT OR BREAK IT, raves David Hinkley of the New York Daily News. Who will rank number1 at Nationals and what will it take to get there? Follow the triumphs and the heartbreaks as close friends balance their lives as high school students with the intense world of competitive gymnastics.
The good part is that the drama should be fun to watch for us. And for the guy at Pizza Shack, too.New York Daily News Full Review
Make It is silly, melodramatic fun--and will score big-time with viewers from the fanatical Shawn Johnson set.Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Not everything works--starting with the split-screen gymnastics footage--but there are enough juicy bits here to forge a solid foundation with plenty of plot tendrils.Variety Full Review
There's very little that's unexpected in Make It, including the obvious editing of the gymnastics performances. But Emily's a tough character who's easy to root for.Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
Despite its fancy flips and dizzy floor routines, Make It is unconvincing as a portal into this subculture and numbingly hollow as a commentary on teenage life.Boston Globe Full Review
No doubt there will be many lessons about the importance of pulling together and being true to oneself, etc., but Make It or Break It seems prepared to take on not only the obvious Life Lessons but also the crucial undercurrents that move so many lives well into adulthood. And that, as much as the graceful wonder of gymnastics, will make it worth watching.Los Angeles Times Full Review
