A young dancer wants to bring back disco and has drama on the way, 28 February 2010
Author: moviemaniac305 from United States

This movie wasn't amazing if you give it the 'proper rating" but if you put everything aside and judge by how entertaining and fun it was to watch it becomes a solid good movie. The plot is kind of predictable but there are a couple of surprises which i found to be great. Although the acting wasn't incredible, it was good enough to pull off the script. I found the actors who played Zoe and Michael extremely likable and worth watching. And any of the relationships that were evident in the movie showed a lot of chemistry. The Dancing didn't technically impress me a whole lot, but it was once again very enjoyable and good enough to not really have to sit there and complain. Another thing i like about this movie is it does get to the point, i don't believe that it started off too slow and none of the moments dragged too much, i thought the timing was pretty good and couldn't wait for the commercials to end. Overall this movie isn't your typical good movie, but is is enjoyable and fun and that's why i think its worth watching. 7 out of 10.
