This movie is good for dancers who are really into it. However for me I found it to be fast paced because I did not get the dancing portion. I kept feeling like I missed the best part by blinking.

what scares me more than the question as to why they make junk like this is this:
DO THEY KEEP MAKING LOW-LIFE, BRAINLESS JUNK LIKE THIS BECAUSE
* PEOPLE CONTINUALLY GO AND SEE IT? ( A LOWER CULTURAL iQ?)
* ERGO, THEY KEEP MAKING MONEY?
* EUROPEANS, THEREFORE CAN JUDGE OUR COLLECTIVE SOPHISTICATION AS CIRCLING THE DRAIN?

I had my 19 year old niece from Chicago visiting me for the weekend. We did the typical NYC things prior visit. When she mentioned she was interested in seeing this movie, I cringed. I know the genre and I read many of the reviews, not so good from critics and viewers.
I have to say, though the genre is uber typical, this movie does provide redeeming qualities that makes it appealing to the target audience; 30 and younger I would imagine.
The dancing is obviously a hit; the kids can move. I use the word kid respectively because even the movie acknowledges old school b-bop and new school b-bop skills. But that the movie also delivers is a stream of consciousness around community/family. This is done so connectively with the dance competition, young parents and gay tolerance story lines. As cliche as much of it is, I'm glad the movie focuses on cliches that many of us could benefit from on a daily basis. Take a young person and inspire.

I was not in the mood for scary, cartoon or true stories so I chose this movie and was impressed, entertained, delighted in the morale of the film. I brought my 7 y/o son and 16 y/old daughter and we all really enjoyed it. You need to see this film!
