    This movie was a lot better than I expected. Yes, it is cheesy, but it has a great message for youth which still holds true. Plus the music is awesome, the dancing is amazing, and it makes you want to get out of your seat and start breakin' along with them. This movie is a lot of fun.

    The Grandfather of every "dancer with a dream" movie - and it's hard to dislike it.

    Gloriously bad, but meant to be cutting edge. Good times.
