Having read quite a few bad reviews of the movie, my expectations of Step Up's storyline were decidedly low, so I wasn't too disappointed.

All the grooving was sufficient to keep me entertained throughout, envying the bodies which moved with such poise, ease and energy. There were some bits which made the movie a little slow and could have potentially made Step Up more than just a music/dance movie.

My favourite scene wasn't the final showcase but the mass dance in the club. The movie changed my bias towards techno/hip hop music and made hip hop dance absolutely cool. In contrast, ballet seemed somewhat boring. Combined, the dance was chic and stylish.

Channing Tatum's physique and ability to sweep a girl off her feet literally would wow any woman. Together with Jenna Dewan, they manage to pull off sweet sexy without the sleaze, but not much sizzle either.

Step Up - makes you want to step out and learn how to dance
