One World

It is good for anyone. It is positive in almost every way. However one song is three girls competing to get a part in a movie. One kiss, but it is perfect for four and up!

Great family movie

It was a very cute movie! I even enjoyed it also, although there is some jealousy issues, it turns into total loyalty. Actually the jealousy gave the viewers a lesson in loyalty and all of that stuff. So I say, right on!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Young fans of the Cheetah Girls and their music probably won't be disappointed. Everyone else, well… While you'd expect more fun Bollywood beats to permeate the Cheetahs' pop sound, only two songs (particularly "One World") really deliver. The rest -- way too many for a feature this length -- are pretty boring and sound the same, and you can't even tell whose voice is whose.

Music aside, the story is cute enough. The innocent romance between Aqua and Amar (Kunal Sharma), and the way they end up meeting, is rather sweet -- as is the flirtation between Rahim (Rupak Ginn), the big Bollywood star, and the shy choreographer. And woven into the story are a few lessons for the Cheetahs on loyalty, embracing change, and facing obstacles. This makes up for some of the corny lines, silly misunderstandings, and treacly girl-bonding moments meant only for tweens' enjoyment.
