'Stomp The Yard'
(Columbus Short, Meagan Good, et al / NR / 91 mins / Sony Pictures)

Overview: An expert street dancer heads to Georgia to attend college, but there's this step-dancing competition that gets in the way of his studies and his love life.

Verdict: Let's say you're white, sheltered and have never seen School Daze. Then you probably don't know about "step" competitions. They're a type of dance competition that some African-American university students participate in. And according to this movie, it's a cutthroat world of brutal one-upmanship and chiropractor-employing moves that involve crashing to the floor — ribcage first — in a crumpled heap and then immediately rebounding from that death move by leaping up over people's heads, executing a triple-axle and landing on your nose. I think it's probably exactly how they say it is because I have no good reason to disbelieve them. So let's all think of it as a documentary.
