I don't understand why people are so critical of this movie- I thought it was hysterical. however, i also saw it in China without subtitles and i'm not completely fluent in Chinese, so my conjecturing about the plot might have made it better. I'll admit that the plot was a little stupid, but the dancing was really cool. But seriously people, its amazing because it's so ridiculous and cheesy, you can't help but laugh. A lot of times people take movies too seriously, and probably somewhere this is listed as a comedy. Or maybe its just me, as only the Americans in the audience were laughing as much as I was. Movies are supposed to be entertaining, and this movie most certainly was.
