Less than avarage
22 August 2018 | by fyniainaSee all my reviews

The lack of knowledge of dancing that the main character had was cringe worthy for me. The storyline was very predictable and avarage and the overall delivery of the movie was just not good enough for a movie that had potential in my opinion.
