Not surprised for "Step Up" to take second place with that much money. Advertisement was all over the place and T.V.,too. But this weekend people wanted to go fast and I want to go fast lol.

I am happy for step up also. After seeing that Kevin Smith liked the film on Ebert and Reoper, i went to see it yesterday, and it was pretty good. Way better than Take the Lead, Honey, Dirty Dancing 2 and Shall we Dance. It also has one of the best soundtrack this year. Just Like SAve the last dance. I knew it would do better than WTC. It was sould out and WTC was not.

will surpass Step Up next weekend by a huge margin as step up takes a huge hit and WTC holds extremely well.

90% good rating by Rt users. Number 2 in the boxoffice. Being called save the last dance 2. That means that this is a good movie. Save the last dance was a very good film. So you are saying theat step up was good also, if you are calling it save the last dance 2.

P.S It was Written by the same person who wrote save the last dance.
