I thought it was enjoyable. People are judging it a little harshly, I don't think it was meant to be Shakespeare exactly. It might have worked better as a t.v. movie, but still, I thought it was a fun little drama and got some smiles out of it. They could have used a little more variety in the soundtrack--I think we hear several repeats of about four songs--but it was capitalizing on the then-dawning workout craze, and that's what you might expect. They could have done some more character development. We should have seen some more conversations or in other ways gotten to know more about the characters. It really plays a lot like a workout tape itself, it's more about the club than the people...but it's not worse than some other movies which have gotten more praise.
