BOOM

AWEOMSE MOVIE!!!!! I loved it. If you like movies like Honey 2, or any of the step up movies, footloose, etc, this will be an enjoyable movie for you. Some language, but still ok for older tweens and teens.

Unemployed coach becomes world renowned.

Josh Holloway's character before he was the coach was out of a job. Which is not uncommon. Unemployment rates have actually gone up over the past six years. I heard that in 2009 10% of all people were unemployed. While the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is up at 80% in 2012. There is work being done trying to get more people jobs, including those that have disabilities. There is a fight scene at a party.

Boring but harmless

For me as an adult this movie was incredibly heavy-handed on the cliches, boring and badly made. The kids loved it though. I took a 9-year-old, who's really into break-dancing, and two 11-year-olds. If you don't mind hearing the odd "sh*t" and "*ss" this movie is just fine for that age group. The coach's drinking problem is barely noticeable to kids - it's restricted to him taking the occasional swig out of a nondescript flask when he's home alone. He never acts drunk or rowdy, and is never seen drinking in bars. I honestly think my 9-year-old probably didn't even realize he was supposed to be an alcoholic. The sexual innuendo was very minimal. There is one woman in the movie and she is treated as one of the gang (after a couple of little jokes at the beginning).

Mild PG-13 with some crude content

This movie isn't very bad for younger viewers, but there is some swearing and there is some crude content sometimes during their dancing.

13 and up.

this dance drama movie battle of the year is an average movie stars with chris brown this movie is good enough for your older teens and parents battle of the year has some mild violence like fist fights there's some mild language used and some drinking used this movie has a positive message about Teamwork, above all, prevails and check your ego at the door the role model is that although Coach Blake is an alcoholic, he's trying to stop drinking while putting the team together. Almost everyone on the crew is well-intentioned and determined, though some are arrogant and aggressive. They're weeded out pretty quickly.
