Mr. Bennett: Well, Kelly, now that you've left your life in the theater, maybe you'd like to reconsider my offer of four years at Princeton.
Kelly: I haven't quit, Dad. I'm just takin' a break. I told you a million times: dance is my life.

So bad, it's good.
3 February 2001 | by pianoboy-3See all my reviews

If for no other reason, watch the film to see poor Ice-T delivering what may be the most badly written rap lyrics of all time! This is an unintentionally very funny film. Funnier if you were a teenager in the 80's, because you remember it all. The kids do dance well. The 'gang members' are so un-menacing, it's just precious. The dance number in the hospital is breathtakingly ridiculous. Have Fun!
