Cocolonia's Mother:Aaaaaaaa! What kind of music is this? It sounds like murder and drugs!
Cocolonia:It's hip hop.
Cocolonia's Mother:Hips should never be hopped! Not under my roofs! You're grounded to the house for the entire weekend. And Cocolonia, remember, today, I'm hosting the Censorship Fund-raiser. So please wear something opulent.

I don't know where the poor rating comes from, 26 September 2012
Author: emdoub ( from United States

This certainly wasn't Oscar-worthy, but as a spoof of the worst parts of every other dance movie ever, they carried it off pretty well. Some of it fell flat, but other parts were remarkably charming. It's the best spoof musical I've seen yet.

It could have been better, but almost any film could have been. Getting Andrew Lloyd-Weber to write the music, consulting Robin Williams on some of the jokes, getting A-list acting talent - any of these would have improved the movie. They didn't have the budget for any of that, though - and they didn't really need to, either. If you like spoofs, and can sit through a musical (with music far better than Repo had, at least), I think you'll consider it time well-spent.
