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>

And you thought Annie was a bad musical?
16 February 1999 | by (University Park, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Goodness--what a terrible film to be sure. Not even with the presence of Lorenzo "TV's Renegade" Lamas did this thing have a chance. Plot mirrors "Singin' In the Rain," only without all the love, talent, great production numbers, etc. What does save this film is its horribleness, though. It's so bad it's good. How so? Well, we've got breakdancing, Lorenzo rapping, people chucking a little black kid around (a dollar for a throw, apparently), a gay bar that was only bested by the Blue Oyster in "Police Academy," extremely incompetent acting (except for Lorenzo, of course), a guy named Ricky Ricardo (who may have been part of Vanilla Ice's "posse") and another guy--and you'll know him when you see him--that whenever he begins to dance, oh God...well, you'll lose it completely. WARNING: Not to be watched without the benefits of alcohol/other mindnumbers.
