AA angle was nice
11 December 2006 | by leahbradshawSee all my reviews

I love movies about murder and aerobics! This movie fit the bill nicely. The dance troupe had one guy who just sucked. Awful. This movie had moments where you felt like you were watching a Nagel print coming to life. The choreography plot, well, he didn't do a whole lot of practicing for his big debut. I think they needed to spend a lot more time in the studio and less time boning all the chicks. The interesting thing was they really played up the AA meeting angle. Like you really felt like you were at a real Las Vegas, down on their luck, AA meeting. More satisfying that 95% of the crap that passes for movies these days. I would compare this to "Killer Workout" in enthusiasm. No big twist ending, but still a very passable attempt at dialog. I just wanted to get back to the regular AA meeting. Actually, in retrospect (or I am sobering up) there was some witty writing going on in this movie. I liked this movie.
