| Would've loved this film even more as a kid
This was a very cute film. Corbin Bleu reminds me of Lil Fizz from B2K. Handsome young man and I loved the flirty thing going on with him and Keke Palmer's character Mary. This movie came out in 2007, but I don't watch the Disney channel or Disney movies much so I'm late to the party on this one. The movie is about a young boxer (Izzy) who has a crush on a double dutch enthusiast (Mary). Giving her a hard time -- as all teenage boys do -- and having to drag his little sister out lead to him finding out about a double dutch competition. As with all sports movies, one team member quits and they need someone else to fill in. Izzy, being a boxer, already knows how to jump rope but doesn't understand the point of a double dutch competition. Chances are if you've seen a sports film you already know how this one goes. It's predictable but adorable. I loved all the G-rated flirting Mary and Izzy did. The movie also had a little bit of edge with Izzy's rival who's father isn't around and who comes from a poor family. I like the way the movie mentioned his rival's circumstances without relying on them in a "whoa is me" way. And Izzy's two sidekicks cracked me up, especially Mr. "I'm a be sick." That dude reminds me of so many guys I grew up with. He was actually my favorite to watch for comedy relief.

Side note: This film made me remember how much fun I used to have jumping Double Dutch. I wasn't nearly this nice but I could hang and I used to always be outside jumping with other girls. Only reason I didn't give this movie 10 stars was because I thought more would come of the crushes. Then again, this was a Disney film so I guess that wasn't supposed to be a big part of it.

It was fun to see a bunch of African-American actors doing a positive film that both young boys and young girls could relate to. I wish there were more of those out now for kids to look up to instead of reality TV.
