Si on enlève les 4-5 scènes de danse qui sont pas mal du tout, aucun intérêt...

So unbelievably dull. There was nothing that makes this stand out from other films. Turned it off half way through.

Was hoping this would be a good sleeper dance movie, but it wasn't. It was slow moving a little rocky and doesn't work well.

"Dream to be a Dancer" flicks are a dime a dozen anymore ... and this one doesn't really do anything new with the material other than present an off-tangent tragedy three-quarters of the way through to make a viewer feel more-than disturbed. 33-year old Aimee Garcia is supposed to pass as 17/18 year old Carmen (she doesn't), a Chicago high schooler with little to no motivation to do anything with her life until one particular teacher -- the one who gives her a hard time AND the only one in the entire film about high school -- asks her to apply for a dance academy in California. The story isn't particularly well-written and all of the characters are open books ... although some of them make NO sense (again, poor writing). They are all stereotypes ... and this is too bad. The film is predictable, predictable, predictable ... and nothing new. There was some talent onscreen (and off) with some nice hip-hop choreography; but the "story" is supposed to be more than this dancing. As the character is already sympathetic, I found the added punch-in-the-gut that I already mentioned a ploy that was unnecessary and it made this rather unpretentious film almost seem pretentious for a bit.

This movie is pretty good, but not the greatest of its kind.

I generally enjoy dancing movies. I did not enjoy this one. This movie was not what I was expecting. This is really not a feel good movie. I found it disturbing and tragic. The acting was not good and the dancing by the main character Carmen was incredibly amateur. I understand what this movie was going for and trying to achieve, but for me it really missed the mark. I didn't even enjoy the dancing parts and found this movie all around not very entertaining.

This inspirational Hip Hop dance drama follows Carmen, a young woman living in Chicago, who struggles to overcome her fears and follow her dream to be a dancer. -- (C) Official Site

An honest peek into the world of the urban latino teen, their struggles, their triumphs and defeats. Great dance sequences. Just don't call it a latino or dance film. It is something way beyond of those constrains. See it with the whole family, grandma will come out dancing hip-hop!

Carmen's very passionate film is motivating our Latino community to follow their dreams to attend college!

This movie has a lot to say about the transitions young people make, or think about making, as they begin their lives as adults. "Go for It" makes us feel the trials and the joys that young people experience when they begin to live their own lives. While I do agree that their are some weak spots, the fact that it succeeds so well in reaching out mitigates its weaknesses. A very good movie, with a very lame title. You really ought to go see it.
