Storyline

Chilly D is a young man in New York who just lives for the thrill of rapping and breakdancing with his gang, the Body Rocks. One night after performing in a club with his friends, Chilly gets an offer to perform at a high-class nightspot with a chance at becoming a star. He grabs the opportunity and soon he's on top of the world. Surrounded by all the trappings of his new-found fame, however, Chilly loses touch with the people and lifestyle that made him what he is. Will he turn his back forever on his past, or remain true to his roots? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This could be the best movie of ALL time.....
30 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie at the local used record store for $2.95, and bought it for a friends birthday. Let's begin; Lorenzo Lamas heads a breaking (I used the 'g' because Lamas does too!) crew, The Body Rock Crew. They are just a bunch of kind hearted street punks who love to express their inner turmoil through the majesty of break dancing. Now; with that said the "film" begins with Lamas and company holding up traffic whilst they pop and lock across the intersection only stopping to oogle an '80's chick in unison. Then we see the crew hanging at their local dive putting on a dance, and rap show. Lamas is the first to rap, let me TRY to describe this; Imagine you have an uncle who is all things not cool, but according to your uncle he is the epitome of cool. Now imagine he shows up at your 16th birthday party dressed like a cross between Travolta circa Carrie, and an extra from Lionel Ritchies "All night long" video and begins to rap things like "And now i'm gonna do a rap for you,i'm Chilly, from the Body Rock Crew!!" On and on it goes, Chilly eventually bangs his best friend/Dj's little sister, gets famous off of his skills (?) performs a song (Smooth Talker) blows off his "homies", falls from grace and re-connects with his crew for a final "Rapstravaganza". If you enjoy all things '80's, laughing, and Lorenzo Lamas I highly suggest you and those close to your heart check out this Rapstravaganza!!!
