This is a film that doesn’t get included in the list of great breakdancing films for some reason. We love it, but it does have a distinctly paler pantheon than most of those movies. Still, this movie is so much fun we can’t believe we’d never heard of it before.Picture Lorenzo Lamas not as a renegade cop, but as a renegade dancer. Now picture him covered in gold body paint and glitter and reciting unspeakably filthy lyrics to an audience. That’s this movie.
Most of the film is pretty tame, though. It’s a standard “naive person rises to fame and forgets his roots” story, only with breakdancing.
The movie is appropriately flashy and fun, though. The music is good. And while it’s more of a dance film than a breakdance film, some of the sets and choreography are genuinely creative.
It’s a really super fun movie. We had fun with it so, if you’re nervous about watching it alone, go get our audio commentary track so you can listen to us watch it with you. After that, go play outside, and don’t forget to wear your floor length leather duster, the one with your street name emblazoned on the back.
