Make It Happen is amazing! It is up there with Step Up for me, and it is definatly better than Step Up 2.
The story is a typical dance movie story, but is still good. I just thought that the dancing was so good! I read a review from a newspaper giving it a 1/5 because they thought the dancing was rubbish! I'd like to see them be better!
The acting was alright, and the music was great. I also thought that the dances in Ruby's club were creative, like with the umbrellas, the spinning circle etc.
Overall, an uplifting movie which makes you get out there and fight for your dream until you get it...

This seems to be a 'modern' remake of Flashdance, but lacking the pace and the style. Not a bad film though, and it's enjoyable as everything about it is done well (acting, photography, dancing), but lacks sparkle. Maybe because it's in the shadow of the original 'dancer wannabe' movie?

I first saw this at the pictures and enjoyed it so much that I bought it on DVD. It has the same story line girls wants to dance but has to do it another way because she can't get into the school of her dreams but the dancing is amazing and the acting isn't too bad either.

Format: DVD
This tells the story of a small town girl who goes to audition for entry to a prestigious dance school in Chicago. She is rejected, on the grounds her style is not feminine enough. Unwilling to concede defeat, she applies for a job in Chicago, working as the book keeper at a burlesque night club. One night, when she thinks everyone has gone home, she dances on stage, but is spotted by the music director, who then persuades her to take on a dancing job. As her skills grow, she feels confident enough to take another shot at getting into the prestigious school she applied to.

This film is a pretty good dance flick, and has a very upbeat, varied soundtrack. The storyline of the small town girl trying to make it in the big city is an age old one, and thus has tremendous appeal. This is one for dance flick fans (e.g. Save the Last Dance, Step it Up), but might be a little shallow for non-dance flic fans.

The best dance film ever- a mixture of Coyote Ugly, Save the Last dance and sliced with Step Up! A must have for inspiring dancers like me!
I wanted to just get up and bust a move right in the aisle of the cinema, luckily i didn't.
The music is very ghetto but I am down with that, it is just how i roll.
See if you like anything with dance in it.
and remember.... if you have a dreama dn a goal, don't let go of that dream or goal and maybe one day your dream and/or goal will come true
Love and peace, and keep on dancing
MOLLY Elizabeth

A brilliant and vibrant film full of fast dance and a few home truths,the moral of this tale is that sometimes you have to do what you need to,success is down to you and your hard work and dedication is what gets you there,the film tells you how a young girl has a dream and she goes off to obtain the dream that she has had since she was a young girl,there are many pit falls along the way and there are things that happen and get in the way but sometimes you have to push past adversity and this is what happened.
This is a great film and has plenty of dance mixed in,sometimes you shed a tear at the sadness but well worth the watch!

For a start Mary Elizabeth Winested is not a very good dancer so it is pretty hard to believe a prestigious dance school would shortlist her for an audition. So when this fails she gets a Job at Ruby's, a modern burlesque style bar, doing the bookkeeping and happens to fill in for one of the dancers one night. Surprisingly the audience love her performance and she becomes one of the favourite dancers. After about 2-3 dances in the bar she decides try out again for dance school, so she does and gets in,even though she has not developed as a performer and does a similar routine to the first audition, this time involving a ladder and jumping on a piano. The whole movie seems ridiculous as she can't dance and everything is just handed to her. They have included a back-story of her losing her parents which I feel they put in to make us feel sorry for her as I doubt many people would care if she got in or not otherwise. It also doesn't make sense for her to be an urban dancer when she is from the sticks. The Blu-ray quality is only up to dvd quality.

If you like Save The Last Dance chances are you'll like this, sad back story and wanting to be a dancer but not quite giving enough to succed, good acting and believable story helps it along as you will her to find that extra passion she needs, final dance really good.
