Movie Info

In his last feature film, veteran filmmaker Robert Wise directs Rooftops, an '80s dance-filled melodrama featuring a similar plot as his 1961 Oscar-winning musical classic West Side Story. A white boy named T (Jason Gedrick) lives in a largely black and Hispanic neighborhood built on the top of old buildings. He and his friends engage in a streetfighting dance competition called "Combat," which is supposedly based on the dance style of "Capoeira," originally developed by slaves in Brazil. He falls in love with Elana (Troy Beyer), who is the cousin of his major enemy, drug dealer Lobo (Eddie Ve'lez). Conclusion involves a big fight/dance sequence between T's neighborhood and the drug dealers.

  • If the movie had gone ahead and declared itself as a musical fantasy, that would have taken the curse off the cliches. But it hedges its bets; it pretends to be a straight narrative, and then hopes to sneak in the dance stuff.

  • This romantic musical drama about homeless Manhattan teens living on rooftops doesn't reach any heights.
