Movie was ok if you like corny humor. My husband and son were laughing a lot though. Very predictable movie.

An 80's Gem!

"I know alot of people didn't appreciate and like this movie. That's because you are not taking it with a grain of salt. Take it for what it is...a fabulous 80's movie that keeps you interested because of all the hidden funny references. The songs in this movie are all GREAT and bring you back to when you were in grammar/middle/high school. WHY they don't have a soundtrack is absurd. Would have saved me alot of time looking up all the songs. It won't win an academy award or any award for that matter, but it is entertaining and very funny. Just give it a chance and I bet you WILL laugh and enjoy it.

"I grew up in the 80s, and this was really a blast from the past! It was unrealistic, corney at times, and definitely won't will any movie awards, however what ever happened to watching a movie simply for fun? It made me laugh and brought back all those 80s memories that I miss so much. Life as a child in the 80s was simple, without all the modern technologies (aka hassles). So, sit back, relax, and get ready for 80s nostalgia. Enjoy! Funky fresh boyz FOREVER!"
Brings back great memories

"Anyone who had the privilege of growing up a child of the 80's will find this film moderately funny. It has all the classic nuances that made the 80's! Garbage Pail Kids, Smurfs, Break dancing and Star Wars! How could you go wrong...? In short, if you want a short break from reality and want some great laughs, check it out!"

"This movie has gotten mixed reviews, more bad than good, I presume that you all watched the wrong movie. This is meant to be a parody and in that respect accomplishes one thing: this movie isn't taking itself too seriously. Jamie Kennedy is a dancer who tries to woo a hot chick and prove that his dance crew still brings the funk. To be honest when I had this DVD I was already doubting it, I thought it was going to be bland and tasteless. Instead I found myself chuckling and enjoying myself. The whole plot has been done before. The poor schmuck that is fighting all odds and rescuing a old crush from her "evil" boyfriend who are engaged. The surprising thing about this is that it is truly hilarious with some awkward moments that are extremely disgusting and just plain disturbing. The only thing that I have to nick pick is the character "Kip" and the rival crew they are annoying and stupid, they serve a good purpose but are extremely overdone. The cast is amazing and really make this movie shine but if you want to watch a good comedy that is smart and enlightening...you're out of luck. Even though I think this movie is great it isn't for everyone. If you are nick picky and a little smug this movie is a severe waste of time. However, if you just want to have a good time and laugh and except this movie for what it is: a parody, then prepare to have a hell of a time. And also check out Malibu Most Wanted it is in the same league."

"Ok first of all, I was born in '81 so of course, I am biased via the nostalgic 80's toy references in this movie. I liked the cast, everyone seemed to know their role pretty well and either made you laugh till you cried or made you hate them. Rosenbaum's villain is easily one of the most hateable people you'll ever see as he plays a sassy, rich boy, conceited bully that seems to have no soul. And the "homeless guy" is one of the characters that make you laugh out loud when you're quoting his lines months down the road. SO MANY memorable lines in this one! One of my favorite comedies in my collection."
