Let me make it clear that I LOVE Jordan Fisher.
8 August 2020 | by MIssM19See all my reviews

Quinnn during an interview at college, lets it slip that she was part of the "Thunderbirds", an excellent and well-known dance group. The problem is, she can't dance. So, she auditions to be part of it. She fails, of course, so she decides to start her own group.

Let me just say that I LOVE Jordan Fisher. This could have been a movie in which he makes sandwiches while riding a bike and I would have still watched it. Jordan is the reason I decided to watch this, but I was pleasantly surprised. I don't know if Liza Koshy's acting was good but she convinced me, she was the funny one and she made me laugh. I love Keiynan Lonsdale. I'm glad he was here. It was my first time watching Sabrina, I was satisfied with her work.

Look, the movie isn't nothing spectacular, but it's fun to pass the the time. However, I had two big problems: Firstly, Quinn is 17? And Jake was surely over +21 and I don't know how things are in the States and that is illegal in my country and it makes me a bit uncomfortable, she is a minor. Secondly, you cannot learn how to dance THAT well in two months. I know, it's a movie, but still. Let's keep it realistic.
