Ohhh nooooo
23 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are just some transgressions that cannot be forgiven.

I am not a picky movie-watcher - in fact I think i am probably one of the most easily entertained individuals in Western culture. I am both an avid movie fan and dancer. I have impressive credentials, and have worked with Gary Kendall of Jabbawockeez and many others that have appeared on SYTYCD and ABDC. I'm not saying I'm as good as them, but I know how good dance should be.

Unfortunately, there is nothing in Honey 2 to make me feel any pride toward hip-hop or dance.

I get that dance movies are generally "bad", but usually the star power or choreography/talent in them makes up for it enough for me to enjoy it. This movie made me want to vomit. The lead is hard-hitting, but honestly worse than me at hip hop (I'm a contemporary dancer) and I would venture to say worse of an actress. One of the lead males is greasy, the other looks like a failed Abercrombie model. The choreography scenes are simply terrible. Dance should never be portrayed in such a condescending manner as in this movie. I would venture to say that Disney's "Shake it up" can satisfy any viewer's dance mojo better than this movie and at least the cheesiness and bad acting can be forgiven.

Still a major fan of Quest, Fanny pak, sup3rcrew etc. that appeared in this film. Unfortunately, all the primary stars just made me realize why everyone else hasn't yet caught on to the awesome-ness that is dance.
