Some may say I'm merely crazy. But I see the deep meaning behind this movie.
The dancers represent Jesus. The construction workers are Satan. By defeating the construction workers, the dancers are telling them " go back to hell " and as a result they are showing the world that they are like Jesus.
Okay, it's a bit of a stretch but the director himself claimed he used it as a metaphor, and the "Electric Boogaloo" is a direct reference to Psalm 83, which many believe was written by King David when he was playing a Boogaloo -- an ancient musical device (much like a guitar and flute) that could be played using both hands and/or mouth.
Anyway, a real great movie. I wish Citizen Kane had been this good.
I'm not joking.
