Don't take things so seriously, this was a fun movie
I walked into this movie knowing nothing about it other than that ridiculous line from the previews in which Sway is yelling, "I've never seen stepping like this before!" But I knew better than to take it seriously. Of course this wasn't a great movie in the sense of being a work of art. It didn't break any new ground thematically, cinematically, or culturally. But let's be honest, it had no such intentions. This movie was designed to be watched purely for entertainment value. And in that respect, it was successful.
A large part of the movie's appeal probably just came from laughing at the particularly inane moments - "TNT is the most powerful explosive known to man!" - but let's not kid ourselves, the creators meant for things to be this way. And give credit where due - the dance scenes are definitely impressive at points. So while this movie undoubtedly deserves its poor reviews, I frankly had a lot of fun watching it. So if you go in with the right expectations, this can be an enjoyable movie. And please, don't be so sensitive that you get offended by the "perpetuation of African American stereotypes." Just get over it.
