Diverting if inconsequential dance drama about a street punk (Channing Tatum) who splits his time between break dancing and stealing cars, and who finds himself doing community service at an elite performing arts academy, where his flashy dance moves catch the eye of a ballerina (Jenna Dewan) who is desperate to find someone to replace her injured partner in preparation for the big senior dance showcase, leading to predictable opposites-attract complications as he gives her routine a hip-hop makeover. Despite a hackneyed script, director Anne Fletcher's formulaic, but relatively clean, teen romance is buoyed by some lively dance sequences (choreographed by Fletcher) and appealing performances. Some suggestive dance moves, a scene of vandalism, brief gun violence, including an off-screen shooting, and a few crude expressions, fleeting racially charged rap lyrics and some innuendo, limiting its appropriateness to older adolescents and up. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
