Storyline

Upon learning that their mother owes $5,000 to the IRS, a quartet of siblings endeavor to find a way to scare up the cash. Three of them decide to sign up for a local hip-hop contest. Unfortunately the trio really stinks. Fortunately, the youngest would-be singer meets up with ex-rap star Kendrick Bragg (AKA Kick'nBak Flash, played by Hammer/AKAStanley Kirk Burrell). A kindly fellow, he decides to help them out. But with their lack of talent and less than a week to go, things look grim until the group is able to convince their reluctant fourth sibling (the one with real talent) to pitch in for their mama and do his stuff on stage.

Extremely corny and annoying
6 February 2000 | by jaws!See all my reviews

This family movie is like an episode of full house, except Its cornier and more annoying. The kid characters come off as annoying little brats instead of cute or funny kids. I watched this movie because melissa joan hart was in it,

but even she can't save this extremely corny and annoying kiddie movie. I give this movie *1/2 out of ****
