Horrible acting and script
25 April 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Where did they get the kids from in this movie? I live in LA and all of those fake wannabe black kids would get laughed at acting the way they did in the movie. Even the "cool" black guy was a caricature and every line he had was cringe-worthy.

If you are going to make a movie taking place in America at least get real Americans to play the part or at the very least people willing to act like real people in America.

The disappointing part is that the movie had potential because of the acting of the mother and father and the overall story was a good one. The script was so poorly written that it made the movie unwatchable and the acting was terrible.

And seriously, the main character in the movie is a British black guy who comes to LA to tap dance? You gotta be kidding me.
