After watching this movie, i have to admit that it has become one of my sleepover classics. I make all of my friends watch it. They go home singing and dancing just as i did the first time i saw it. late night television is great for all those B movies youd never thought youd enjoy. this movie ranks as high as moulin rouge and center stage in my book. gotta love the 80's. and the dance off between the street dancers and the sandusky kids is great.

This film is so campy and cheesy that it grabs me whenever it comes on (the Encore channel runs it often). The hairstyles and clothes are fabulously dated, the acting is bad, and the dancing is hilariously Debbie Allen-esque. Eight kids from Sandusky, Ohio move to NYC hoping to gain fame in the dance world within about 2 weeks of getting there! There is a rival "bad" dance gang and some riotously funny dance sequences between the "good" and "bad" kids that are supposed to be the equivalent of a rumble between gangs (sort of like "West Side Story" meets The Solid Gold Dancers with an Adam Ant fashion sense).
If you love unabashed cheese, this is for you!

For some reason, the unabashed cheesiness and dated quality makes me enjoy this film. It's so innocent compared to today's standards. Whenever this movie would come on HBO, my eyes would be completely agog. The film is like a warped form of escapism for me. Watching 5 kids from the streets of Sandusky rise to the top in the Big Apple is just a sight for sore eyes. I love the music in the film, it's repetitive, addictive, and Fame-esque. My favorite song is at the end during the credits called "Long As We Believe." You people be sure to look out for that song because it will be a hit again. Concluding, I wouldn't recommend buying this film, but if you are ever up during the wee hours of the morning and happen to be watching cable TV, give this movie a chance!

I first watched this many years ago (early 90s) and had enjoyed its dance moves and its music in the movie. This is basically a 80s musical (a pity less and less musical movies these days). The music (OST) is great. Retro-hip yet the music composition is not of the conventional UK beats. It gives great mass dancing moves.
Overall the plot is encouraging and motivating and best of all, music and the dance moves me.
Enjoy!

I first saw this masterpiece while on vacation with friends. Its undeniably enjoyable cheesiness captivated all 6 of us. When we got home, all of us went home and bought the movie! I watch this movie every time it comes on TV! I highly recommend this movie, especially if you are a product of the 80s. Enjoy!!

This is a great movie. Some make fun of the cheesy story line but by the end of the movie you will be singing all of the songs! The dancing and choreography is so fun, you can't resist trying it yourself!

I originally found this musical gathering dust at the local video rental shop. Directed by *gasp* Sidney Poitier, it is a truly dated masterpiece as it follows a group of energetic small-town high schoolers seeking fame as a dance troop in the big city of New York. Not only are the original songs poppish and typical of any mid-80's Top 40 song written by Madonna or Rick Springfield, they are also highly addictive! So addictive you could bang your head against a wall a number of times before losing the peppy themes and your consciousness. I truly recommend seeing this movie after a bad day with a big bucket of popcorn and a six-pack of your favorite adult beverage. It will make you laugh and appreciate the evolution of man! Happy Viewing!
