QUICK TAKE:
Dance drama: A plethora of young performers converge on Las Vegas to compete on a dance competition TV show.
PLOT:
After winning the contest in the last "Step Up" movie, The Mob dance team has had a tough time trying to make it as full-time dancers in Los Angeles. The group's leader, Sean (LUIS GUZMAN), vows to stick it out at all costs ... especially now that he has nothing to lose since his girlfriend from the last film has left him. But best pals Eddy (MISHA GABRIEL HAMILTON), Jason (STEPHEN BOSS), and the rest quit and go back to Miami. Determined to prove them wrong, he sees an ad in the trades for The Vortex, a team dance competition TV show hosted by Alexxa Brava (IZABELLA MIKO) that's now accepting video auditions for its upcoming new season.

Sean sets about forming a new team, first recruiting his old buddy Moose (ADAM G. SEVANI) who has become a husband and a full-time engineer since he last danced competitively. Together, they recruit a team that includes Andie (BRIANA EVIGAN), a dancer who previously hurt her ankle and has turned to fashion; Chad (DAVID SCHREIBMAN), a dance teacher eager to stop teaching older women how to do the cha-cha; Violet (PARRIS GOEBEL), a tough waitress eager to quit her go-nowhere job and take a chance on her skills; Jenny (MARI KODA), an Asian-American dancer with a sunny attitude; and several others.

Their main competition is the Black Knights, a team led by the arrogant, but super-talented Jasper (STEPHEN STEVO JONES). Sean also has his past to deal with when Eddy and the rest of The Mob show up to compete and are hurt that he has moved on and formed a new team. They all come together for a spectacular finale after finding out that Jasper and Alexxa are in cahoots to rig the contest.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, especially teenagers who are fans of such shows as "So You Thing You Can Dance," "Dancing With the Stars," "Dance Moms," etc.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some language and suggestive material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
