Max Washington has just been released from prison after serving time for burglary. He returns to his old hangout, a hoofer club. (Tap dancer club). His old girl friend, Amy, who still works at the club as a Tap instructor, is less than thrilled to see him. Her father, Little Mo, is happy to see him, because he has plans for a show involving Max. In addition, Max's old partners in crime have another job they want him to do. Written by

Harold Nicholas and his older brother, Fayard, were The Nicholas Brothers. They can still be seen in old musicals dancing their amazing acrobatic tap. See more »
When Little Mo (Sammy Davis Jr.) is talking to Max (Gregory Hines) and first shouts out "Challenge" to the other dancers, he is wearing a white do-rag on his head. As the dancers run up and join him in the dance room, he is suddenly wearing a hat instead. See more »
This movie, though the plot is somewhat weak,is really, really good. The dancing is soooo amazing that you can't watch it without getting up and trying some of the steps yourself. I'm a tap dancer as well, so it's fun "stealing steps" from the tap masters in this film. If you like dancing at all,see this movie.
