there’s a good film in here somewhere just waiting to get out. unfortunately it’s tough to see this fact because the acting is piss poor and the writing is more cheesy than wisconsin (see how painful cheesy writing is?). it’s about a crew of dancers who want to win a popularity contest so they stage all these flashmobs and dance for attention. as far as worthless 20-something activities go it’s relatively harmless.
then, though, they find a purpose when their community is threatened by a wealthy developer (peter gallagher) who wants to raze the neighborhood and build luxury condos. after this they use their dance antics to raise awareness and, ultimately, stop the developer’s plan. on the whole, it’s a pretty wholesome film – they are a bunch of hip-hop style dancers who annoy somewhat with the flashmobs, but they don’t do fundamental harm to the community, they don’t tag buildings, they don’t do drugs, they don’t even seem to engage in premarital sex. in this way it’s a pretty interesting film. it’s a wholesome revolution that is occurring, it has elements of class and art, etc. there really is a potential in a film like this if only the right people were in place to do it properly.Watched in theater
