Two friends in South Central LA (Marques Houston and Omari Grandberry) divide their time between a red-hot street-dancing crew and mule service to a local drug lord in this hokey hip-hop musical. The performers all move a lot better than they talk, which is bad news for the insipid melodrama but good news whenever the characters hit the floor in furious competitions between rival crews. Street dancing seems like a tricky form to shoot because, despite the synchronized movement, there are bursts of chaotic improvisation; the production numbers here are frequently electric despite the dim lighting and timid camera angles. Christopher P. Stokes, a manager of hip-hop talent, directed his own script; with Jennifer Freeman and Steve Harvey. PG-13, 115 min.
