Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though earnest in its efforts, the movie falls short of the energy and fun exhibited in Stomp the Yard. (Hoping to capitalize on the box office success of that earlier film, this sequel has been released directly to DVD.) The story is predictable, unoriginal, and without depth. With few exceptions the performances, editing, and production values are barely passable. There are a very few exhilarating dance sequences, but most of the musical numbers look amateurish, partly because the director is hamstrung by having a lead actor who is not really a dancer.
