This is Save the Last Dance but without the awkward part where Julia Stiles pretends to be a gangster. Yes, it's predictable, but there are still a few surprise story lines. The dancing in it is PHENOMENAL. And after seeing Channing Tatum in that Amanda Byrnes film I really didnt expect this from him. Definitely for the girls, but I think you're partner might secretly like this too!

To say this film was crap, would be an insult to the world of faeces. Poor acting, poor dialogue, poor directing, poor casting, poor everything. Why didn't they cast a black actor in the lead role instead of making Channing Tatum put on some awful "Hood" accent and pretend he is "down wit his homies in tha project y'all"? I know, it's because that wouldn't be as photogenic for the americans to stomach.
In response to the first comment. Yes, your partner might enjoy this film, but only if he is a complete retard.
On a positive note, Step up is not as awful as Syriana.

I found it funny, and the dancing was good. To it all of Channing tatum was in it! I found that the best bit, he was in She's the Man, and totally different, I didn't imagine dancing!
I loved it, I love Channing Tatum too. :))))

People on here are giving this good reviews. Why, exactly?
The dancing really isn't that incredible, although it is good. But seriously, this is about as enjoyable as watching a slug crawl from one side of the path to the other.
It's really a train-wreck of a film- Tatum looks confused throughout by the simple plot, and doesn't seem to grip this idea of 'acting.'
In fact, he all but stumbles through the film- his face or voice rarely changing despite what the script asks for him to do. However, since this movie, his acting has improved- perhaps it's the material that left him similar to a wooden plank? Who knows?
The scripts are as cliched as anything- a combination of every single dancing film ever made- in fact, I'm not even worried about spoilers- everyone knows what's going to happen- bad guy turns good through woman, mocks hobby before being mocked for doing it, and then gaining respect for winning some competition, or other.
It doesn't even have a unique element to enlighten the plot- even Dirty Dancing had an abortion sub-plot to stop it turning into a film as cliched as it could have been.
This is a film so hilariously bad that it's not even watchable- you just have to struggle through it- and be wary, there's no prize for doing so.
