From a guys point of view
30 December 2006 | by kyle_waye777See all my reviews

My cousin heather wanted to go to this movie, so she took me with her. I thought the movie was going to suck, but it ended up...that it was one of the best movies i seen all year. I really recommend that you watch this movie. The movie was based on two people, both from their own worlds. The world of break dancing, and the world of ballet. Comes together and falls in love. When Tyler is ditching his friends for Nora, they got mad at him. But they grow closer when "skinny" gets shot by a gang. With the loss of skinny behind them both...they go on again...but he doesn't forget his friends. So again...from a guy who is not sensitive..i recommend step up.
