This movie is incredible. An underdog sports movie, somehow built around a dream team of the best dancers in America. That's right, a national search for our best breakdancers is part of this little-engine-that-could story about Americans trying to reclaim the world breakdancing competition after 15 years of losing to France and South Korea. This is a movie that opens with a businessman addressing his boardroom with the lines "I was at a concert this past weekend and I heard some high school kids saying that B-boying is no longer cool. That scared me." A movie featuring Sawyer from LOST as an alcoholic former B-boy channeling Coach Taylor. A movie in which there's about 20 seconds of reaction after a breakdancer admits he's Jewish. A movie with about a dozen incredible real-life B-boys - and Chris Brown doing cartwheels. The A.V. Club gave it a rare "F" in this spot-on review that details some of the obscene product placement (mostly for the director's previous film): www.avclub.com/articles/battle-of-the-year,103121
More along the lines if how did this awesome crazy thing get made? A sequel to one of the worst films is next level bonkers amazing. It turns movie making conventions on its head and laughs at all of them. It features George Clooney before that was a thing, plus Anthony Starke and John Astin. Full contact America's Cup!
Please please PLEASE do Mac and Me. I've just recently watched it for the first time since I was a kid and hoooo boy, has it ruined my memories. I felt so overjoyed at seeing how bad this was that I had to register on here just to recommend it. If you were looking to review a cheap knock of off E.T. with Coke and McDonalds product placement throughout, then look no further. This is simply, a classic. Keep up the good work, James.
