The umbrella dance was originally planned with water dropping down like rain, with the girls dancing in water, splashing it around with their dance moves. However, the idea was scraped due to the fact that it would be too easy for the girls to fall while shooting the scene. See more »
In the scene were Lauren dances onstage at Ruby's for the first time, as she goes into her starting pose, she realizes that she is too fair to the left (viewer's left, her right) of the stage and adjusts herself so her silhouette (outline) is right in the middle of the sliding stage door (at the line where the doors meet). However, in the very next shot her silhouette is now to the right (viewer's right) of the middle/door split. See more »

I have to be honest, I watched this movie for 2 reasons One: a small portion of the movie was taped in my local city. I wanted to check out how the landmarks where used in the movie (the mechanical shop, the bridge and the club where some landmarks that I recognized), which I should add was done really well. Second: In the past I have enjoyed dance movies. This movie is way to similar to "Save the last Dance" basically because I have seen "Save the last Dance" I knew basically what was going to happen in this movie. Besides being a copycat movie I would say Make it happen is an entertaining family movie but not as entertaining as Darren Grants other movies I have seen. I will recommend this movie to my teen aged nieces as the target age would be 21 and under.
