Audience Reviews for Stand Up and Cheer

"The plot for this movie is really ridiculous, especially watching it in "this day and age" but it's charming."

Greg Wood

This movie is made up of song and dance numbers, stupid characters, and a silly plot that doesn't make much sense. I didn't enjoy this movie, and I don't recommend it.

between the stereotypes/racism & the choppy/sloppy script this was a flop for me. back to the library it goes.
