Out of a very boring and formulated lousy screenplay
The Hip-Hot competition did not look like an international one but local event. If it's international, all the countries participated should have their competitions first until the best team won and qualified for the so-called "International" competition. But the so-called "Beat The World International Competition" was nothing but a sort of backstreet event in one of the American city. The participating teams, especially the team from Brazil was so bad and so mediocre that their dancing skill was even worse than their English. There's nothing so international at all, because you could easily tell most of these boys and girls actually lived in America, they just played as foreign young people. The screenplay was so bad that it didn't fall apart from the very beginning because it never solidified at all in the first place. There was no scenario or plot, everything was just so predictable and so deadbeat boring. The so-called competition dancing, the romance, the maverick or the dark horse, the foe or friend, the normal middle class family, the high school drop-out, the misunderstanding, the quarrel, the fights, the cheating, the helplessness...and so on, all the ingredients used in this pathetic movie were old stuff that had already been used maybe thousand times in other crappy movies. There's nothing newer or better than all the movies in the same genre we have already seen before.
