Is It Any Good?

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

Dancelife isn't just another reality show in a sea of plenty -- Lopez's involvement (she appears onscreen regularly) brings the series into the spotlight. Often accompanied by husband Marc Anthony, J-Lo shares her street-smart wisdom with the aspiring dancers -- she empathizes with them, having started out in their place. Viewers watch as she judges dancers' looks and abilities, getting a peek into not just show business, but J-Lo's business.

Aspiring dancers, actors, and others hoping for a shot in show business will recognize and appreciate the challenges that these performers face. For the rest of us, Dancelife offers a superficial guilty pleasure with celebs and eye candy galore.
