Electrifying dance elevates an almost boring film.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this dance movie targeting teens -- especially fans of the original Step Up -- is age-appropriate for older tweens. There's little sexual material, swearing, or violence.

  • Families can talk about why dance is so important to Andie, who appears to have had a difficult childhood (though we don't get many details about it). How does it allow her to grow and learn? What sense of satisfaction does she get out of competing in the streets?
  • Why do you think dance movies are so popular?

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Promises to hit all the urban-dance hallmarks with sledgehammer intensity.

- Amos Barshad, New York Magazine, Friday, February 15, 2008

Rotten: It suffers from a real lack of charisma, still the dance bits are good.
