Movie Review: Step Up

so a girlfriend recently asked me to view this flick, and i being the total dancing queen that i am (ha!) just could not refuse, and it did not let me down or dissapoint.

first of all let me introduce you to my new favorite boytoy:


yeah, say hello to the lead in this movie, mr. channing tatum. couldn't you just eat him right up? and if that picture doesn't do it for you than perhaps this one will...........


ahem. yeah. nough said bout that

moving on......

ok, what was i talking about here.....oh yeah the movie, right.

so the lead character (above, i know you all just want to scroll back up there for one more look) is Tyler Gage (how sexy/manly eh) who is a rebel from the wrong side of Baltimore's tracks ­ and the only thing that stands between him and an unfulfilled life are his dreams of one day making it out of there. Nora (JENNA DEWAN) is a privileged ballet dancer attending Baltimore's ultra-elite Maryland School of the Arts and the only thing standing in the way of her obviously brilliant future is finding a great dance partner for her senior showcase. When trouble with the law lands Tyler with a community service gig at Maryland School of the Arts, he arrives as an angry outsider, until his skills as a gifted street dancer draw Nora's attention. Now, as sparks fly between them, both on and off stage, Tyler realizes he has just one performance to prove that he can step up to a life far larger than he ever imagined.

sure the storyline is a tad predictable, but i loved all of the characters in this movie and more importantly the dancing was sick and off the hook. my boytoy channing can really freakin move and i had a permanent smile on thru this whole movie. so going to have to own it when it comes out on dvd.

i give it 4 stars out of 5

He's OK. I think he has a nice body but his face is kind of generic. I'd have to see the movie. I love dancing films--have you seen Take the Lead?
