Drama/Musical: Dancers who perform together as a "flash mob" oppose a developer who wants to demolish their Miami neighborhood and build a massive, mixed-use development in its place.
In Miami, a mysterious group of flash mob dancers who call themselves "The Mob" have been disrupting public gatherings with their elaborate, staged routines. Their leader is Sean (RYAN GUZMAN), a waiter at one of the city's posh resorts who dreams of the group winning a $100,000 Internet video prize and avoiding humdrum, dead-end jobs. The Mob includes his best friend, Eddy (MISHA GABRIEL), who is a whiz at computers; special-effects guru Jason (STEPHEN "TWITCH" BOSS), who is also an insanely good choreographer; street artist Mercury (MICHAEL "XENO" LANGEBECK), who never speaks; and Penelope (CLEOPATRA COLEMAN), one of the best DJs on Miami Beach.

The Mob regularly hangs out at the salsa bar and nightclub in their neighborhood owned by Sean's uncle, Ricky (MARIO ERNESTO SANCHEZ). But a powerful real estate mogul named Anderson (PETER GALLAGHER) threatens that neighborhood with plans to bulldoze the district and erect a massive, mixed-use development that will include hotels, condos, and retail.

Anderson's daughter, Emily (KATHRYN McCORMICK), meanwhile, has come to Miami and dreams of being a professional dancer even though her father wants her to work for him. She meets Sean and is immediately taken with The Mob. The two fall in love and opt not to tell the rest of the group who she really is. But their secret eventually comes out, threatening not only their love affair, but the future of the Mob and their dream of saving their homes and businesses.

Yes, especially teenagers. There is a youthful vibe running throughout the film. Teens who enjoy "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing With the Stars" will have much interest, as will those who are fans of the earlier "Step Up" movies.
For some suggestive dancing and language.

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!!!
