A Step Up...
23 May 2004 | by trusarinitySee all my reviews

I thought It was an excellent movie. They definitely brought it up from their direct to video movies. I don't know what everyone was expecting, they can't go from the WAY wholesome to gruesome that quick. Plus, that's not what they are all about. It was a good movie with a nice story line, a lot of laughs, and I'm actually looking forward to whatever movie they come out with next. It wasn't an Oscar worthy movie exactly, but this movie makes it clear that the girls do have the talent and ability to do that someday too...if they want. It's a good movie to take both young girls to see and for older girls to drag their boyfriends to watch. It's cute and sweet. It's better than Lindsey Lohan's MEAN GIRLS anyway.
