Brilliant Childhood Movie

Brilliant movie, lots of positive messages about perseverance and friendship. A little cliché but a great movie for the family!

The plot is predictable and the characters are clichéd, but somehow ALL STARS manages to be a fun and entertaining film that's full of heart. A lot of it is owed to the impressive dance numbers that range from surreal dance sequences inspired by Space Invaders to ballroom dance numbers and Bollywood movies. The music also is catchy, full of popular tunes and cool DJ mixes. And, although the characters are definitely stereotypes, they're all genuinely likable and funny.

Parents will like the positive messages about supporting your community, doing what you love, and not judging others. And though older tweens and teens may find the plot and characters a little cheesy, they'll probably still enjoy the fun dance sequences, making this a family film that's worth watching.
