Storyline

A Topeka, Kansas fun park dance troupe led by a 260 pound dancer (Ben Zook) learns that the park is going to close. Their leader convinces the group, now named "The Stupendous Six", to join him in a painted up bus and to hit the road to find the big time. The Six compete against other dancers to win a chance to compete in the grand finale at the Little Miss Orange County Beauty Pageant. The other members of the Six are Melanie Hutsell as an airhead, Margaret Cho as a oral fixated sex maniac, Brett Paesel as the leader's homosexual lover, Bruce Daniels as the African-American member with a penchant for misuse of black slang, and Michael Irpino as another more stereotypical gay dancer. Lots of cameos from tv stars occur in the various dance numbers. But this comedy does take most of its cues from "The Full Monty" rather than from other major dance films.

I really want it.
1 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this is the movie I saw on HBO or something onetime and I'd love to see it again. It's one of those movies that's so "musical corny" that it's hilarious and I found myself watching the whole thing unexpectedly. It was so enjoyable. If it's the right movie that I'm thinking of they dance around a whole theme park and there's a "bad boy" with hair slicked back etc, but he just really want's to dance! Some elements are very similar to Hairspray which would be an alternative to check out if you haven't seen that yet. This was less "contrived/intentional" humor though. It was just a really sweet, 80's feel modern musical. I really wish I could get a hold of it and confirm this is the right movie, but it seems you can't even buy it anywhere. It's surprising you can't get it because the amazing cast alone should be enough for distributors to snatch it up. Certainly cult film buffs.
