During the very first dance battle Moose has on his initial visit and tour of NYU, he knocks a street vendors colorful wares of their table onto the ground to make room for his dance move. When the camera changes angles, everything he knocked to the ground is missing. See more »

This is a completely rubbish film from start to finish and I'll explain why without spoiling anything (not that there is anything to spoil).
Firstly lets start with the good (will be quick) the acting is amongst the worst I've ever seen in a film, literally, it's a range of people probably genuinely from a street life style and upper-class people who know how to dance street (despite the fact street dance is meant to be a representation of your life-style and culture) and there are also other dance styles in there too - but to be honest that is the only reasonably entertaining thing about the movie and that's only due to choreography and over-dramatic scenes, now to the bad (grab a coffee).
Let's first start with the story, well there isn't much of one it's basically an excuse to start dancing nothing more, if you want a decent dance themed movie with a reasonable story and decent acting you should look at save the last dance. Now onto the directing, editing and general theme; it's bad, It's like the creators got together and said "let's make a movie based version of Britain's got talent with only the dancing parts and more dramatic" and took it from there. Now the acting (if you can call it that) is just terrible, now I know some people are saying to themselves "hey we're not watching this for the acting etc, just wanna see some dancing" well if that's the case the go to a dance show because that's all this movie is but more glam and dramatic. Acting generally makes a film, obviously directing etc comes into play but usually if the acting is terrible then so is the film, and that's exactly what this film is - the even funnier thing about this film they try too hard to make dancing seem like a mysterious force that is essential and way of life which leads you into wisdom etc yeah right! it's an art-form, an expression etc but that's it. I could literally moan about this film until I'm blue in the face but I will stop now and let you judge, and if you have a few brain cells you'll just learn from my experience and pass on this film because it's simply crap.
