In maybe 8th grade or so every kid in America used to have to take a class where they’d teach you how to write checks and not get caught up in Ponzi schemes. The latest SYTYCD reunion movie is an upbeat and brightly colored movie for people who never took that class. It’s a dance movie for people who don’t know how rent works.
The bad guy wants to buy properties that are for sale, that’s just the kind of bad guy he is. But his daughter and her boyfriend don’t want him to buy those properties and they are going to make their point through… dance! Because dancing usually solves real estate disputes.
I’ve never had a problem that would be made better by me dancing, so I’m kind of at a loss here. But the dancing is amazing and the flash mob, Improv Everywhere style is fun. Miami looks incredible and if you’re not going there this summer, you can at least drop by for 90 minutes or so. And if any kids in the theater seem overly worried about the outcome for our cinematic heroes, you can explain how grown-up stuff works and put their minds (if not their dancing feet) at ease.
