Stomp the Yard (2007)



Critic Consensus: While Stomp the Yard contains impressive musical and dance numbers, it loses its momentum during the intervening soap opera-style subplots.

There's little here for British eyes.

Benign nonsense.

Top Critic

It's a little bit of a musical, a little bit of a sports film, a little bit coming-of-age story. And none of it, beyond the dancing, any good.

... the film as a whole lacks the energy of its dance numbers.

DVD Review

At a time of year when theaters are filled with flashy, fun, but empty offerings, Stomp The Yard is a surprisingly satisfying alternative.

It's not a great movie, no, and maybe not even a particularly good one. But it's likable and unassuming, and the dancing is off the hook, or whatever the kids are saying these days.

Audience Reviews for Stomp the Yard

Sucks critically, poor acting and script but still bearable to watch.

Always been a sucker for dance films and this didn't fail to impress. It was a breath of fresh air to find a dancing film that had a different sort of dance. I'd never heard of stomping before I watched this film so it really made it different from the other dance films I'd seen. Good film!

It's better than I thought it would be. It's good. You don't have to be a victim of your circumstances, you just have to find your drive and go for it.
