Pleasantly surprised
25 July 2003 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

this one surprised me. i chose it at the video store, just because. i'd never heard about it, nor the actors, except for Daniel Cosgrove, thanks to life in Pine Valley (AMC) so, i had no bias.

after the first watch, i thought it was ok, but the second time round i enoyed it much more. The leads were well cast, esp Kamar, who plays Nick. He is sexy, a good actor to boot, and he was made to move to music. i could have spent the entire movie just watching him dance. Annabeth Gish was good also, although i thought that she lacked a little in the rhythem department. i will say though, that after the wonderful, natural moves of Kamar and Tesse Santiago, Amy was more than passable.

there were of course little things that irritated me. the fact that she chose to re-commit to her loser fiance, and then practically go through with the wedding! hello! also, her mothers attitude about Nick's heritage as well as her friends anti-nick advice, then the sudden turnabout from both parties in the end, including Tesse's character.

despite that, this movie is a treat for anyone who loves the sultry music, the wonderful beats, the dancing and the eye candy in the form of Kamar. i loved it.

10!
