Step Up 2 - The Streets

Ok.. I know what your thinking.. or at least I know what I was thinking. Oh no.. not another one of those immature dance movies with no plot.

Well I have to say I am way more surprised than you are that I actually LOVED Step Up 2 : The Streets. I'm not even kidding seriously I ended the movie wanting to watch it again. Now, I admit.. the plot was short and the main focus of the movie is the dancing, but who can blame them seriously those kids are talented. If I had abs even remotely like the main actress did, um yeh.. ok I'd show them off too. Then again I have never had abs like that no matter who skinny I get so I can just keep dreaming.

Seriously though the plot was actually substantial enough to keep me watching though a bit based for teenagers, but there is one character in the movie that is just so freaking adorable (in a geeky goofy kinda cute sorta way) that makes the entire movie as far as I am concerned. The first scene where Moose shows off his dancing skills is in my opinion worth the rental fee at your local movie rental place, not to mention the amazing dance sequence at the end of the movie. The entire thing reminds me a bit of this tiny guy who used to dance at these computer conferences I used to go to when I was younger and cooler. Every time he would dance I would end up dropping everything I was doing to just stare at him blankly like a purple glowing cow had just entered the room.

Mmm.. I think Ill go watch it again, seriously. I guess I am just shocked as I really thought I would hate it, its not so often you guys get to see me so tongue tied for words.


In the meantime here is some more info on the movie :

When a street savvy girl with untrained talent teams up with a virtuoso modern dancer to compete in an underground dance-off, sparks fly both on and off the dance floor! Street kid Andie (Briana Evigan) wins a slot at the elite Maryland School of the Arts, but finds herself fighting to fit in with her privileged classmates while also trying to hold onto her old life. But when she joins forces with the school’s hottest dancer, Chase (Robert Hoffman), to form a crew of fellow academy outcasts to compete in Baltimore’s underground dance battle, The Streets, she ultimately finds a way to live her dream while building a bridge between her two separate worlds.

I'm always up for a movie about dancing. I used to be quite the dancer myself (ballet, jazz, etc.) so I'm always mesmerized by talented dancers (there's so much work behind it).

I think i'll love the dancing!! My sister's fiance got me into dancing, and now I try to find movies to deal with dancing!

windycindy said...

Hi, I like that she comes from being self trained on the streets and then she meets the privileged boy. I remember watching the heroine's real live dad in "BJ and the Monkey" Show.
His name is Greg Evigan. The music sounds great and I love dance. Thanks, Cindi

blueviolet said...

Usually the storyline is weak or horrible in dance movies but I could care less: the dancing is so worth it. I love dance movies ever since I saw Footloose in high school. There were a bunch of them in the 80's. I'm fired up to see the dancing in this one!

The best part will have to be the dancing. The story plot will probably be weak but the fantastic dancing will make up for it. I sure wish I could do a few of those moves.

I think the best thing about Step Up 2 will be the hardbodies and the dancing.
Those are the 2 things that dance films are known for.
I'm sure many women sat through Staying Alive more than once back in the day to catch a glimpse of glistening,nearly naked John Travolta. Not for the plot or acting. :)

Music and Dance...thats 7th Heaven for me since I was old enough to dance in my crib. Little has changed since except now we have a tiny dancer in the family who loves music almost as much as I do.
