Story A Bit All Over the Place, but Not Boring
Overall I enjoyed the movie, but IMO it was too slow getting off the ground. Luckily, I DVR'd it so I watched it in my spare time while eating here and there.. In addition, the characters could of been developed more fully. The main character seemed to do a 180 degree turn for no reason and there was really no build up to that. Also, Bun B's character and the incident that caused the climax was a bit random as well. The only consistent character was the Director (the cutie from Training Day) who chose the video girl to begin with. If the goal of the story was to deter young girls form making bad decisions or choose another career besides dancing in Hip Hop videos- I didn't get that. What I got was a small town girl who got an opportunity of a lifetime, but blew it by biting the hand that fed her and ultimately making poor choices. Were her choices a result of what happened in her family, was her boyfriend abusing her? That's where more character development could of come in..
