Honey Daniels is a 22-year-old, sexy, tough-minded, part-black, part-Latina hip-hop dancer in New York's East Harlem who dreams of making it big as a music video choreographer. She teaches hip-hop dancing at a local youth center and encourages the local kids to attend to keep them off the streets and out of trouble. When luck shines on Honey in the form of a famous music video director, named Michael, who casts her in one music video, she's encouraged to make the transition from dancer to choreographer. But Honey's sudden success comes with a price when Michael refuses to take "no" for an answer to his sexual advances and then tries to sabotage her career by blackballing her out of the business.Written by
It is deeply ironic that this movie chose to call itself 'Honey'the one food on the planet with no need of an expiration date as this mess quickly turns rancid . "Your flava is hot " being one of the unintentionally funny moments in Honey of which there are many .Spoken to a group of break dancers ?!!!! The cliches pile up one after another . The fact that this mess was written by the same buffoon who wrote 'Glitter' should be warning enough . Jessica Alba is on record as saying when she read the script she was unimpressed as it was just one big cliche .Well,what changed Jesse? It is still just one big cliche ripping off far better movies like Flash Dance , Karate Kid or even Rocky . Jessica is going to have to be far more careful in her choice of material if she plans on staying in Hollywood for longer than a coffee. Acting lessons would also seem appropriate . Honey 1 of 5 stars .
