Movie Info

Been looking all your life for a sizzling mash-up of Paris Is Burning, Rent and Dreamgirls? Leave It On the Floor is that and more, a supersized musical featuring a family of fierce voguing performers coming together to snatch a trophy in the big ballroom competition. When our hero Brad is kicked out of his house for being gay, he finds himself drawn into a raucous ballroom event. Looking for a warm place to sleep-and someone to sleep with?-Brad meets the ragtag members of the struggling House of Eminence. As he searches for his place in this family of fascinating characters, he gets schooled in how to express himself with spins, dips, and hands. When he decides to join the house and compete with his new family, everyone comes together to help him learn. That is, until a love triangle threatens to destroy all that they've built together. Director Sheldon Larry deftly interweaves original songs throughout. "Justin's Gonna Call" and the title track "Leave It On the Floor" are sure to make it onto your playlist, and they're all equally matched by the signature moves of Frank Gatson, Jr., one of pop music's most sought-after choreographers (Michael Jackson, Destiny's Child, and does anyone remember an obscure song and dance called "Single Ladies"?). Pulsing with energy, joy, and some of the catchiest and queerest dance songs ever, Leave It On the Floor will keep you coming back for more. - CINDY M. EMCH

Practically defines the words 'niche appeal', but should take the very specific group it's actually aimed at by storm.

Full Review… | August 6, 2012

Gays, transvestites and transsexuals, mostly black, strut their stuff in an uninhibited fashion as they compete on catwalks and dancefloors before panels of judges.

Observer (UK)

The songs (including a saucy ode to Justin Timberlake) are fresh and witty.

Full Review… | August 2, 2012

A bewildering exploitation flick that will probably end up with a dedicated cult following.

Audience Reviews for Leave it on the Floor


So-so off off broadway type musical set in the microcosm of the vogue ball scene in LA. There's a couple of foot tapping numbers, but it looks really cheap and there are some shocking lip synchs. A poor man's Rent at best.
