I didn't expect to really like this movie, but have now watched certain parts more than a few times. I would love to see the original script! I suspect key parts were left out in favor of others that weren't necessary. They spent way too much time on the beginning, Josh getting to the town, and on the visits in the counselor's office where nothing happened. As another reviewer said, I did not understand the point of one of the dancers being injured. It took up time and added nothing to the story. The story line with the bully was never brought to conclusion, so why did they even bother? Once the team danced in the finals, they wrapped up the movie VERY quickly. I felt cheated out of seeing the progression of characters, relationships, and an actual conclusion. For example, I noticed the high school DJ was helping at State Finals. How did that happen? We never saw him interact with Josh or the dance team. I REALLY loved the music (and it's not what I would normally listen to, so that's saying a lot) and the dance routines. I've watched them all numerous times. I liked the development of Josh, and wanted to see more. SPOILER ALERT: At the end, Josh tells Mary "I'm not leaving without you." Clearly some parts were cut out because we never saw their relationship develop enough to get to that point. Finally, when the counselor tells Mary he's sorry, and she said "I know," could they not have at least hugged in their shared loss? Another missed opportunity to give some kind of conclusion. I think this could have been a really good movie if the editors and producers had put more of the focus where it needed to be and less on useless scenes.
