Step Up 2 The Streets is a combination of Fame and Flashdance, set in present day Baltimore.  Instead of “gangs” there are groups of dance teams called “crews” and they challenge each other to dances.  When the kids are dancing, the movie is phenomenal.  When they talk, the script shows, and it’s trite.

The funniest line in the movie is when the new crew in town performs and gets heckled – someone in the crowd yells out: “This isn’t High School Musical!”

Greg and I were the oldest ones in the audience.  There were a few other parents there probably because they drove their kids.  Mostly young teenagers.  Some great messages about friendship, being true to yourself.
