Stomp the Yard

This hip-hop dance movie was written by one Gregory Ramon Anderson, then rewritten. The result: an LA street dancer (Columbus Short) loses a friend to gun violence, gets sent to Atlanta to stay with his aunt and uncle, attends the traditionally African-American “Truth University,” steals pouty Meagan Good from a snotty frat boy, joins a rival fraternity, and tries to whip his brothers into shape for a national step-show competition. Holding all this together would be enough of a chore even without the hollow black-pride message; the movie ends with a generic exhortative quote from Martin Luther King Jr., who probably wasn't talking about synchronized dancing. Sylvain White directed; with Harry Lennix. PG-13, 115 min.
