If it wasn't for
17 September 2001 | by (Motown) – See all my reviews

Nicole Sullivan, Kamar de los Reyes' body (Oh yes!!), Tessie Santiago (*singing* "Behind the mask . . ."), and the choreography, this movie would have been terrible. That's unfortunate, because I feel VH1 has produced some of the most original movies/series on Basic Cable.

I like stories that have cultures coming together, because that's how it should be (!), but I REALLY feel they should have gotten a better lead actress. Annabeth Gish acted like she ate a cold, 3 day old burrito prior to shooting this movie. She was extremely dry. There was a moment when she was supposed to look pensive, but she looked braindead for about 40 seconds. I thought it was an outtake. Nicole Sullivan would have been so much better in the lead role.

The movie had a decent plot, but the screenplay lacked. Plus, everyone was pushing someone away from something they wanted without a significant reason for pushing them in the first place. That's not drama, that's a reason to take a screenwriting class--or to pick another career.

I have to give this one a 4, because what I did like, kept it from being disqualified. I can't save the last dance, because the dancehall is closed--indefinitely.
