What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Make Your Move is a Romeo and Juliet-style romance set in the Brooklyn nightclub scene. The main characters' brothers run rival clubs and are locked in a bitter feud, but the two young lovers are drawn together by their dancing skills. Derek Hough (of TV's Dancing with the Stars) and South Korean pop star BoA co-star, so you can expect plenty of lively dance numbers. There's also a good bit of drinking during the nightclub scenes, as well as several fist fights and a drive-by shooting (it causes fear and chaos, but no one is injured). Sexual content includes kissing, flirting, sex talk, and the implication that characters spent the night together; language isn't constant but does include "s--t," "ass," and (sparingly) "f--k."
  • Families can talk about how Make Your Move uses dance sequences to show the growing sexual attraction between Donny and Aya. How does this differ from standard romance movies? How does it compare to other dance movies you've seen?
  • How does Donny and Aya's love of dance bring them together? How do their families keep them apart? Why do you think the "star-crossed lovers" storyline is such a popular one in romantic dramas?
