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
