I gave my wife the Roku remote, asked her to pick something for us to watch, and she picked this movie. It was actually titled "Daddy Can't Dance" on the Epix movie channel. I'll admit up front that this movie runs a little long, and probably would benefit from trimming about 15 minutes to improve the plot flow a bit. We actually got interrupted during the viewing, and had to pause the movie in the middle.

The movie is essentially about a Dad who finds out his daughter is sick and tries to win a dance competition. There are also subplots about an ethically impaired co-worker who tries to steal one of his inventions as well as another about a lack of communication leading to his wife's increasing suspicions of marital infidelity. The only part that I really didn't like was when the Grandpa was trying to justify why he never had any time to go eat ice cream with his son.

I was surprised to find that overall, the movie works fairly well. I was rolling my eyes a bit at the silly 'bad teeth' gags, but others in the room thought they were pretty funny. The dancing in this movie was very interesting to watch, since I've never really paid any attention to break dancing before.

I'm not sure why people are giving it a 4. Ultimately, the movie is based on real world events, so it isn't going to have huge battles, alien invasions, or anything like that. I think the movie is a solid 8.
