I really really really love this movie. I rewarded it as my FAVORITE MOVIE.
And put it on 'A Must Watch. Recommended!!' category.
The Dances, The Songs, The Lights, The Costumes.
So attractive. So luxurious. So gorgeous.
Every scene of this movie stuck on my mind. After watch it, I feel like I wanna dance too. Hahaha. They moves beautifully beautiful. I feel like I watch a dance competition, not a movie. Really really really well done.

But, there is a shortfall of the movie. The story, the drama, was a very plain and common story. Without the dance, only the drama, it would be a very boring movie. But, the dance save it :D
Last but not least, Rick Malambri is obviously a new Kutcher. Even sexier ;p
I present to you Madd Chadd and Malambri. Wooohooo
Well, that's all. And remember that's a personal opinion. Why don't you watch the movie yourself then make your own opinion. Then let me know whether you like it too, or not.
Hope you enjoy reading my post. XOXO
Cheers and Beer,
