Hot Topic Thursday: Step Up…to Pay Nine Bucks for Another Dance Movie?
“I love being a Greek!” exclaimed a friend of mine after she saw “Stomp the Yard” last weekend. The movie, which is about the substance of sorority and fraternity life, along with impressive stepping, is causing quite a stir on campuses. But is it just another dancing movie in disguise? Fancy footwork doesn’t always mean a quality plot.
The movie features the new actor turned heartthrob, Columbus Short, along with R&B crooners Ne-yo and Chris Brown, among others. Aside from the eye candy, it’s got an invigorating plot. So will it only measure up for sorors and frats who can relate, or actually break through that “Save The Last Dance” cutesy curse?
