Three sentence movie reviews: Step Up 2: The Streets.
When watching the Step Up* movies, I find it best to turn off the racial filter because really, the mostly white kids are going to best the mostly of color kids at their own game, really? That said, this is an enjoyable dance movie, which is to say that the plot is incredibly predictable, some of the acting is horrendous and it doesn’t really matter because there is enough dance to make it fun. The leads are fine with Robert Hoffman all wide-eyed and shiny and Briana Evans all snarly girl with a heart of gold.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home
*I enjoyed calling this movie, “Step Up Two Colon The Streets.”
Channing Tatum report. Indeed, he has a bit part, just as I assumed. However! Said bit part (about 5 minutes total) also consists of CT dancing! Using trampolines. Becuase all the cool clubs have trampolines. I guess? His dance was total CT and had an ending that made me squeal with delight. And yes, I actually squealed.
