School of Rock, but dancing
This is defintly Sofia Carson at her best. Her character in this movie is so unlikable and mean, borderline the villain in fact, which is a nice change from the teeny bopper DIsney Channel characters she usually plays. I would actually like to see a movie where she is 100% villain. I know she was Sandman's daughter in that Spider-Man episode, but I want a full movie where she's like a full psycho evil classic villain.
Ok, so plot-wise, this is pretty much beat for beat (no pun intended) School of Rock, but with dance instead of rock band, but not nearly as funny. It's predictable, yes, but still enjoyable. it feels very 90s in some parts, but I think that was kind of the point. The young kids in this film also give very believable performances. I thought this was a fun movie. Netflix lied about the rating, though. They have it listed as TV-G, but it is definitely a PG-13. Mild language, some suggestive content, some...teenage situations, let's say. It's about the same level as School of Rock (which is also PG-13) in terms of content. I hope Sofia gets more roles that show her range. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, cast her as a villain. (Evie from Descendants doesn't count. She wasn't actually a villain, she was just vain.)
Grade: B 8/10 4/5 stars
