Audience Reviews for How She Move

  • Jun 02, 2009
    I was shocked to find out at the end of the movie that it was filmed in Ontario. What do Canadians know about step-dancing? The movie is pretty good. Pretty difficult for the hero to balance relationships, studying for the scholarship and step-dancing.

    movie was very slow, dancing moves weren't all that explosive, just seemed like a remake of stomp the yard but from a female dancers point of view instead of a guy, very,very similar storyline, but i liked stomp the yard, just didnt want to see it again.

    Had to watch this movie, only because my nephew thought it would be good. It was cheesy! Not a great dance movie or any stunning moves like other dance movies. Once was enough.

    Surprise surprise! One of these movies was finally good! Besides being slightly cliche, this movie is way better than all of its ugly siblings (see Stomp the Yard, You Got Served, etc.). I thought most of the leads did a way better job acting then any of those in the others. Not to mention this movie actually proved to be way more inspirational...although just a bit forced.
