One of the original film to blend love with dance in the modern-day millenium era. Stiles and Patrick Thomas' on-screen duo floats gracefully like any other partnered dance routine. The script, though predictable, still provided emotion to bring you to your feet. 4.5/5

A classic dance film! The cast is amazing and the story is very realistic and truly heart wrenching that things like this really do go on in violent neighbourhoods in America.

Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas make a perfect couple in this romantic movie containing happiness as well as problems and sadness.

Cliched, contradictory, stereotyped, contrived and boring. Absolute bile and worryingly popular among kids.

A classic in it's own way.

I just found this to be extremely predictable and cheesy. It was an obvious attempt at a modern fairytale, in which the main character pursues her dream. The acting is extremely bad and alarmingly moody. I just felt there was no reason to enjoy this movie.

A very good film that mixes a lot of different ideas. Imagine a melting pot of Romeo & Juliet, Bring it on and Boyz n' the hood. It's a good story with a talented young cast and a great feel good film.
