Incredible dancing and awesome music fuel STEP UP, the exhilarating and inspiring movie starring Channing Tatum who sizzles as Tyler Gage, a rough and streetwise hunk with raw talent. When Tyler finds himself doing community service at a school for the performing arts, he also finds Nora, a beautiful and privileged classically trained dancer who's searching for a temporary replacement for her injured dance partner. Spying Tyler's smooth moves, Nora decides to take a chance on him. But as they begin training, tension builds, tempers flare and the differences in their backgrounds explode -- igniting this electrifying tale about not giving up on your dreams.

Critics Consensus: This trite teen romance has too little plot and not enough dancing.

Clichéd dance movie with some fun moves.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Step Up contains references to gang violence, racial unrest, and tragedies resulting from a life of poverty. Social classes are prevalent (the "privileged" and the "poor"), and lies and betrayal are part of the storyline. Tyler comes from a low-income foster home, and his life is all about parties, thugs, and criminal behavior, including a run-in with a chop-shop owner. There's some profanity and sexual innuendo.
