Storyline

When Jasmine "Jazz" Morgan loses her mother to a long-time battle with lung cancer, she can only focus on one thing - becoming a famous singer. Ignoring the wishes of her father, Blair Morgan a strict doctor who prefers that she return to college, Jazz spends the summer entrenched in the hyper-sexualized, drug-influenced DC music scene, dragging along her younger, more naive, sister Leah). One night, after an impromptu audition, Jazz is invited to join a popular go-go band managed by a charismatic barber, Gabe and supported with drug money provided by the lead MC, Flight. With ease, she falls in line with the band and in love with the stage and together they all reach new heights of popularity. But just as quickly as her success rises, so does the pressure and Jazz recklessly tries to maintain control. Written by anonymous

I REALLY wanted to like this movie...
15 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love go-go. I'm from the DMV. I have an idea of what everyone's about. I know people like that, that's where I'm from. I mean, the bbq scene, that was home. That doesn't make a good movie though What ever happened to the guy who raped Jazz? Although I agree with the message that D.C. artists go to NYC and get raped one way or another. Rather than staying at home and get love.

What happened to the dude that raped her? They left a lot of loose ends, but something that huge? The end of the movie felt like half-time.

Wood Harris was TERRIBLE at trying to pretend he was from D.C. He could not get the accent or the slang right. It's not in him. Why fake it. Even damn UCB couldn't barely act, and all they had to do was be themselves. They were barely believable...on stage talking as a go-go band. That's bad off.

Best part about this movie (besides I watched it free)? The music scenes. I suggest, go buy a video of UCB performing (or whoever the hell you want to hear).

My least favorite part: Someone got killed in the go-go. It is not NEARLY as violent in the go-go these days. If you're really that worried, go to a 24 and over show.
