Two good dances. Given the low price I paid for the DVD, that seems about fair.
I am a person who will buy and watch just about any movie that purports to be about dancing. This one had some quality people associated with it. However, the movie looks like it cost about as much as a good car, and the script sounds like it was written over drinks one night. I would venture a guess that most of the extras and bit players were people who helped fund the production.
Note: this is perfectly legit, IMO. If you want to make a movie and you can pull off a successful Kickstarter and make it happen, more power to you. I hope everyone got paid. As a viewer, though, I found this particular movie not quite funny enough to qualify as a parody, not quite sharp enough to qualify as satire, and not nearly romantic enough to qualify as a romance. It is, at least, mildly entertaining.
It reminds me a lot of one I saw years ago, called "Shteps," which was a satire of the competitive ballroom-dance circuit, with a tinge of "Miss Congeniality." My husband said the movie reminded him of "Best in Show". It would have worked better for me if any of the dancing in the movie (aside from the two pieces alluded to) had actually been excellent. The group numbers in this picture are seriously the worst I've seen in any dance movie to date, in terms of choreography, staging, and execution; you will have seen better on any given week of SYTYCD. This may have been intentional, but given that the framing device is a national dance competition, doing so little with the dancing made it impossible to buy in. I mean, dance fans know what top-quality dancing looks like, and this ain't it.
The central relationship is clearly meant to parody those in other dance movies, in which the two protagonists fall more or less instantly in love for no apparent reason, and in which one of them abandons the other right before the big contest. Kathryn McCormick, who is not at all a bad actress, is here given nothing to work with or play off of; there is zero chemistry.
I can't fairly say "I don't like it". There were elements that could have made for an actively *good* movie, if a little more time had been taken with the script and if the production had decided which way they wanted to go with this (i.e. parody, straight satire, or sincerity). There were a few laughs and those two good dances (both featuring Miss McCormick, no surprise). But the prospective buyer can take my remarks above as a caution on what to expect here.
