AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: An attractive Jessica Alba and energetic dance numbers provide some lift to this corny and formulaic movie.

All Critics (116) | Top Critics (34)

This is fairy tale stuff, its saintly hip-hop heroine far too worthy for comfort and its dialogue hilariously banal.

There is body horror here too, and a recognisable seam of 1950s paranoid SF, but at heart this is a slow-burning allegory of the radical change that comes with marital commitment

Alba's quite easy on the eye, and admittedly, a bit of a star in the making.

Not bad for a dance film fitting in around the hip-hop scene. It has a good cast, some good dance scenes but not with any real wow factor. Unfortunately it becomes all a bit predictable and it's not as dramatic as I think they hoped for. It's no Save the last dance, but still not bad for a dance flick.

Such an inspirational film. The soundtrack was amazing and the ending of the film couldn't help but make you smile. Full of positivity and really motivates you. It wasn't a bad film for Jessica Alba to start with at all.
