Did you know there's a difference between the dancing done in clubs and the dancing that kids do in alleys? I couldn't tell a difference, except one involves more spinning on the head.
There's also a storyline invoving Honey's attempt to open a dance center in her working-class Bronx neighborhood to get kids off the streets. Honey and her crew from the center throw together a benefit (which in the movie is 5 minutes long) to raise money, and the movie ends in a riot of cheering and feel-goodedness.
While Alba could be fun in a goofball epic like "Fantastic 4," she's not cut out for even this cookie-cutter melodrama in which she has to play a normal (though incredibly hot) person. The actor playing the video director who gives Honey a break is completely charisma free, and the talented Joy Bryant is wasted as Honey's best friend. Don't say you weren't warned. (image-mesfilms)
