Childish plot and character development, decent dancing

"All of the dancing movies I've seen so far have been weak in everything but the dancing, and this one is no exception, especially when it comes to the plot and character development. That might not be a problem for immature teenagers, but anyone beyond that level will strain to suspend their disbelief in the face of the steady stream of flaws this movie presents. On this basis, this movie is lucky to get 2 stars.
On the other hand, I watched this movie primarily because I love dancing, and the dancing in this movie was pretty good - not amazing, but still pretty good. Unfortunately, the bulk of the dancing doesn't really show up until the final showdown scenes of the movie, and in fact perhaps the best dancing is to be found while the final credits are rolling, as well as in the bonus materials. Particularly egregious in this regard is putting the JabbaWockeeZ performance in the bonus materials and only showing a small sample in the movie itself. The director, John Chu, makes the excuse there wasn't time to include this material in the movie, but I don't buy it. Given that this is a *dance* movie, all of the best dancing should have been included in the movie, and the resulting omission of non-dancing nonsense would have improved the movie, not worsened it.
Nevertheless, I can still give the dancing 4 stars, so 3 stars for the movie overall. Considering that lukewarm rating, I wouldn't say that I wasted my time watching this movie, but I can't really recommend it either, unless you're able to overlook its weaknesses."
