User Reviews

weak lead in the same old story
11 June 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Sara (Izabella Miko) is the innocent freshman in Julliard in NYC studying to be Prima ballerina under the tough famed dancer Monique Delacroix (Jacqueline Bisset). Zoe (Aubrey Dollar) is her wacky Texan acting roommate. Katrina (Maria Brooks) is her assigned mentor. Miles (Columbus Short) is a student substitute teaching in her hip hop class. She falls for the aspiring composer as she's pulled between the world of hip hop and the traditional ballet world.

The story is cheesy and very unoriginal. The main problem is that Miko is a relatively weak leading actress. The main saving grace for me is Dollar's friend character. She's funny cute especially when one of the first thing the movie does to her is to put her in an eye patch. Bisset is good as the grand dame of the piece. This is weak sequel with a poor actress at its center. However there are some minor good parts.
