This is a canned film, like all the dance ones along this line. Poor struggling (insert culture, race, or religion here) coming up and makes it good. Insert inspiring here. These actors are way to good for canned films.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

Average hip hop come up story. Just didn't grab me. The music didn't do it for me either. A series of poor choices and bad behavior by the supposedly inspirational female protagonist. I didn't get it.
