Stomp the Yard
Source: Catholic News Service
After his brother's tragic death, a Los Angeles street dancer (Columbus Short) relocates to Atlanta to attend a prestigious black university, where he is recruited by members of a fraternity impressed by his hip-hop moves to help them dethrone their campus rivals as reigning national champs of "stepping," a traditional style of synchronized dance popular among African-American fraternities. He falls for the girlfriend (Meagan Good) of his cocky competition (Darrin Henson) and, complicating the romance further, her protective father (Allan Louis) is the school's president. Directed by Sylvain White, the athleticism of the choreography and Short's charisma energize a flimsy and formulaic script. Some brief violence including a shooting and brawling, sexually suggestive dance moves, a condom reference, sexual innuendo, some crude language and a few instances of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
