Donny's a cocky kid from New York who likes to dance. He goes to New Orleans and he unwittingly takes part in a criminal act. He is arrested and sent to jail. He gets out on parole and makes a living by dancing in the streets. But his parole officer tells him to stop it because he's not suppose to be where he goes to dance as part of his parole. The officer tells him to get a job but he only wants to dance. He decides to go back to New York even though he's not allowed to. He goes to his brother Nicky who has a club. He learns that Nicky and his partner Kaz had a falling out when a rich guy convinced Kaz that he doesn't need Nicky. Nicky told Kaz that he's just using him to get to Kaz's sister who is also a performer who is hoping an agent will take her as a client because she could be sent back to Japan where she is from. When Donny sees her, he can't help but be interested in her despite Nicky telling him not to go near her.Written by
I gotta admit the only reason I decided to watch this movie, is because I like dance flick and because it has Boa in it. Despite it having Boa, this movie was super disappointing. The dance scenes just didn't stand out and the romantic elements was too drawn out and boring to watch. I get that they were trying to go for that Romeo and Juliet direction revolving modern setting and dance. But it falls short in every level, including the acting. I know they were trying, but it just came off super cheesy. Some 12 or 13 year old girls might be cool with this flick, but I just can't see how anyone could enjoy this sappy, cliché, drawn out dance/romance flick. I think the only reason I kept watching was to do this review and because to see how Boa would do in a motion picture. And again the dance scenes has nothing spectacular. I am not shocked why this flick bombed in box office.
