Critics Consensus

An attractive Jessica Alba and energetic dance numbers provide some lift to this corny and formulaic movie.

Movie Info

Dark Angel-lead Jessica Alba stars in the title role of this film, the feature debut from music-video director Bille Woodruff. Honey is a girl from the streets who works in a record store, teaches the occasional dance class at a community center, and treks downtown every weekend to hit the clubs and try out some new moves. There, she meets a music video producer (David Moscow) who offers her a chance to be a choreographer -- but at a price she eventually learns she's unwilling to pay. Determined to pick herself back up, Honey goes back to the inner-city of her youth with plans of starting a dance school. Lil' Romeo co-stars as Honey's protege; other real-life musicians (including Missy Elliott, Tweet, Jay-Z, and Ginuwine) appear as themselves.

    Such an inspirational film. The soundtrack was amazing and the ending of the film couldn't help but make you smile. Full of positivity and really motivates you. It wasn't a bad film for Jessica Alba to start with at all.

    Jessica Alba plays Honey Daniels, trying to make it big as a music dance choreographer. Honey rockets to success with her unique style but starts to lose her connection with the community she loves. One night, a big time producer Michael Ellis (David Moscow) comes to the club and offers Honey a chance to dance in a music video but Honey soon finds that he has other ulterior motives. The story is extremely cliche and predictable but if you just want an excuse to watch Jessica Alba's pretty face then you might bear the 90 minutes of the Honey show!
