Laughably Stupid B movie
2 October 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Lorenzo Lamas as a breakdancing DJ ,please that premise alone says bomb. I remember watching this years ago and thinking how many breakdancing and beat street movies came out. It seems whenever a movie comes out ,other studios want to cash in on the current fad. The movie is pretty bad with corny music and bad dancing .Scene in a gay bar with some guy coming onto Lorenzo and trying to kiss him was laughably funny but probably not meant to be. You will probably see this movie on the 2 for a buck shelf at your local video store. Only reason I could see buying it is to use it as a spare VHS you could tape over for cheap.HA HA. BODY ROCK sucks.
