Synopsis


Save the Last Dance
In this romantic drama, two teenagers in love struggle to look past their differences. After the unexpected death of her mother, Sarah Johnson (Julia Stiles) moves to Chicago to live with her father. Knowing no one at her new school and not at home in a gritty, inner-city high school, Sarah has trouble adjusting, but she soon becomes friends with Derek (Sean Patrick Thomas), who has talent and street smarts but a checkered past. Sarah was an avid student of ballet before her mother's death sidelined her studies, while Derek has some serious hip-hop moves, and their mutual love of dance leads their friendship into something deeper. However, since Sarah is white and Derek is black, they have more to contend with than the average high school couple; Sarah gets static from Nikki (Bianca Lawson), Derek's former girlfriend, while Derek has to deal with his friend Malakai (Fredro Starr), who is still deep in the thug life Derek is trying to avoid. Save the Last Dance was directed by Thomas Carter, who previously examined the sociopolitical side of dancing in Swing Kids. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    The Hood bring out the best in white people

    This movie is okay, but falls in the same type of movies that came during that time...a white person going to the hood for a better life and a black person trying to leave the hood for a better life. Now there's nothing wrong with that concept, but when its done so much it gets boring. But top everything off little Onyx-Moesha's boyfriend-Bug, from Ride-Q from Sunset Park-Fedro Starr is trying to be a thug. Okay can we get another out-of-work rapper play a better thug, what about Craig Mack

    Ok teen movie

    This movie falls into the entertaining but predictable moves category. If you are not expecting much and just need a fun movie to watch to escape the real world for two hours, this would be the movie to watch. Besides that, the acting is not the greatest and Julia Stiles is not a convincing dancer at all.
