Cedric the Entertainer,
In order to achieve their dream of opening a recording studio, two friends (Omarion, Houston) must first win their city's dance contest -- a fierce competition that pits them against a group of tough street dancers.
1970s roller-skate jams fuel this coming-of-age comedy, as X and his friends, who rule their local rink, are shocked when their home base goes out of business. Heading over to the Sweetwater Roller Rink, they find their modest talents are, at first, no competition for their trick skaters and pretty girls who follow their every move.Written by

When X and his friends first go to Sweetwater's Roller rink Tori mentions "Emotion" by the Bee Gees, but in 1978 Emotion was performed by Samantha Sang. The song was written by Barry and Robin Gibbs, but it wasn't till much later the Bee Gee's released their version of this song. See more »
I think this movie was marketed wrong, when seeing the trailers I assumed the majority of the movie was about the roller skating, not quite enough to get me in to see it. In reality there are a lot of hearty story lines that attract you to the characters on an emotional level.
The Sweetness character is a hilarious disco stereotype and it couldn't have been played better.
I think a nod should be given to Bow Wow, who stands out as one of the few who crossover from singing to acting very well...especially for someone his age. Hopefully he plays some more serious roles and gains some more respect.
