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>

TRY TO STAY STILL - THE MUSIC ROCKS YOUR BODY
10 November 1999 | by (NEW ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

This is a very under rated movie. Lorenzo Lamas as we never really saw him before really moves. He can sing - he can dance- he can look sexy like you never guessed. The whole crew is great and the theme is upbeat. There's even a lesson to be learned (talk about an old movie) Ray Sharkey is just great!I liked him- I hated him- I loved him. Should have been just as big a hit as SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. Don't know why it wasn't ! Don't YOU miss it.
