Very Funny, great dancing and music.. really enjoyed this film.
10 January 2011 | by jonmdivitoSee all my reviews

This was a very pleasant surprise. This movie was a dynamic combination of many of the great 80's movies paired with Glee, Napoleon Dynamite, etc. The movie was very funny from the beginning. It was a classic story of a football star leaving the team to start the first Boyband before New Kids On The Block. It was funny to see them try to invent a concept that hadn't been done before. The slapstick scenes were hilarious. One scene they broke into the head cheerleaders house to steal back a video tape. During which one of the guys decided it was a good time to "poop" in her bathroom. Of course she comes home, he can't get up... I was on the floor laughing. Then we get to the development of the Boyband. They started off and it they were not great, but they turned into a very good band. The singing, dancing, and break dancing was awesome. There is also a very talented young cast. This movie will blow out the box office if someone releases it across the country. A+ all the way. A Classic teenage movie for the 21st Century!
