For the past few weeks I have had the Step Up DVD in the movie cabinet waiting to be watched. No one seemed to want to watch it with me and I didn't really want to watch it by myself. Finally, I caught Fran in a particularly good mood and corraled him into poking fun at the movie with me.
Yes, it is extremely cheesy with awful dialogue, bad acting and choppy editing. On the other hand it is great dance moves with great beats and a happy ending. There's also a very sweet side story involving Channing Tatum with his younger foster siblings.
If you would rather skip the entire movie (and not take my recommendation)- then take the four minutes to watch (and listen) to the musical finale. You will not be disappointed.
Mr. Tatum, you have a new fan. Into my queue you go, sir.
Any dance movie recommendations? Send them my way, please. I can't get enough!
