A low budget teen comedy
23 August 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of an aspiring dancer from a dancing family, who moves to a new town to live with her uncle. Not only does she have to adjust to the new environment, but she also attracts the jealousy of Miss Popular in the high school.

"Breaking Legs" wants to be "Mean Girls", but unfortunately it is nowhere close in terms of meanness and in entertainment factor. It is more about the rather uneventful rivalry between two girls. Fortunately, the music in the film is uplifting and makes people want to dance. I am not exactly the target audience of the film, so I cannot say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
