Alas, the dancers have to stop sometimes to allow the utterly unoriginal story to be told, and the romance at the center of it inspired Amanda Brody, the screenwriter, to produce dialogue so cheesy as to be laughable.

OK, OK. They're good dancers, and well-choreographed. You can see the movie for that and be charitable about the moronic plot.

Anyway. Here's what matters: The dance scenes are great. While no more revolutionary than the "political" plotline, the flash-mob concept does allow for more creative choreography than this series has seen in some time.

The film's frantic cutting style makes it difficult to simply enjoy bodies moving in space.

More is not necessarily better, even when it comes to hot bodies and smooth dance moves.
