Pointless sequel is a waste of time, too mature for tweens.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this sequel to the 2003 dance movie Honey follows the same general pattern and deals with similar themes of sexuality, class, race, and how easily kids from gritty neighborhoods can fall into trouble. There's some strong language ("s--t," "bitch," "ass"), a couple of scenes of passionate kissing, some provocative dancing, and a few Spanish curse words. There are also a few positive lessons about using your talent, not falling for a smooth-talking jerk, and not judging others based on their background.

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: It's fine for the genre, but one day it'd be great to see an urban dance flick with more ambition.

Not bad actually. Even put in a random group that steps. There was one montage that sucked, not going to lie, the music didn't match up with the dancing at all. The music was really slow and it looked like they should have been dancing to something really upbeat. The outtakes are pretty funny at the end too. It's not horrible if you like the dance movies, but don't expect it to be something award worthy.

This is another in the long line of movies about dance crews and their flashy dance moves. The tie between this sequel and the original is very thin, but it is a good movie all the same.
