It was alright.
12 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first watched this movie, I honestly hated it. The storyline was, naturally, predictable and the acting was just alright. But I ended up watching the movie again and it grew on me. I love all the dancing and stepping, and I've learned to deal with the plot. It's really just the dancing that made this one of my now favorite movies. So Stomp the Yard doesn't have the best storyline. The good parts about this movie are the dancing, music, and might I add, all of Columbus Short and Brian White's fineness throughout, haha. If you love dancing movies as I do, then you should give this movie a chance. Don't let the poor rating fool you; for what it is, it really is a decent movie.
