Step Up 2 the Streets
Andie (Briana Evigan "House of the Damned") is a troubled high school student trying to get over the death of her mother by spending her time with a crew of street dancers called the 410 who she considers her real family. When Andie's guardian gets fed up with her running in the streets and threatens to send her to live with an aunt in Texas, Andie has only one alternative: let her old friend from the neighborhood, Tylor Gage (Channing Tatum "Step Up") get her an audition at his prestigious school, the Maryland School of the Arts. Annie aces her audition, but the 410 crew doesn�t take kindly to her defection to the other side of the tracks, and Andie soon finds herself kicked out of the crew. Andie responds by starting her own crew, the MSA, with MSA�s star student, Chase (Robert Hoffman "You Got Served") in order to challenge her old crew to a street battle.

The movie finally heats up when Andie and Chase start assembling their own dance crew. The unlikely pair cobbles together a ragtag group of private school misfits to form their dance crew. The standout among the MSA oddballs is Andie's sidekick Moose, played winningly by Adam G. Sevani, a 14-year-old newcomer.

First time director Jon Chu cleverly used three different choreographers to create the dances. Hi Hat ("Bring It On") choreographed the 410 crew. Dave Scott ("Stomp the Yard") choreographed the MSA crew and Jamal Sims ("Hairspray") was supervising choreographer for the entire film. None of the actors were allowed to see their rival crews' performances until they shot their scenes, which explains the excitement during the competition sequences. But, this basically predictable film only comes to life when the attractive cast is dancing.
