The plot of this movie is a little infuriating, because it gets in the way of the people.

Audience Reviews for Slam Dance

Watchable neo-noir that I picked up on the recommendation of a friend - was a decent little afternoon of entertainment, and something that I hadn't been aware of before so that was kinda cool.

Worth a rental if you have the chance.

Great movie which has very little to do with slamdancing. Tom Hulce (Amadeus) is a divorced comic book artist who gets involved with a seductive woman with some secrets.
