Set the night(and dance floor) on fire!
8 October 2003 | by entrapment27See all my reviews

It's a steamy hot movie especially for dance fans. After seeing this film, I wouldn't mind learning the Lambada from one of my teachers! It stars Kevin Laird , a Beverly hills teacher by day and a lambada dancer by night at the hot L.A. club No Man's Land where he teaches drop outs Beverly Hills math. But his Student Sandy knows nothing but his dance moves at the club.

The movie really catches your attention from the get go but Sandy's crush tends to get a bit annoying especially when Kevin flat out rejects her advances over and over again. You start to feel sorry for the guy. But the dance scenes are the best and who can forget Sandy's sexy daydream. I wouldn't mind riding a motorcycle and a man at the same time! If you loved this movie, you'll love the soundtrack as well. It'll set the night on fire!
