Do you dream of becoming an actor, a singer, a dancer or a musician? Are you willing to endure the grueling, exhausting, rejection-filled road to stardom? Then you can relate to the characters in the new movie Fame.


Performing Arts School

Fame, a teen musical set in New York City, is a remake of the 1980 film with the same name. The movie, which spans four years, follows a group of artistically talented students on their journey through performing arts school. Many of the students immediately appear promising, while others aspire to learn and hone their artistic skills in order to make it big.


Artistic Obstacles

The teens face serious obstacles, from rejection and injury to scam artists and unsupportive parents. One student learns that the future doesn’t always turn out as planned. For some students, their big break falls into their lap. But for others, a career in the arts means endless work for little or no reward.


The Cast of Fame

While most of the cast are budding actors, but you’ll definitely recognizes a few familiar faces. Kay Panabaker, who played Debbie Berwick on Phil of the Future and Nikki Westerly on Summerland, stars as an insecure singer/actress. Also, you’ll recognize Kherington Payne from So You Think You Can Dance season 4.


The Bottom Line

Dance movies are a dime a dozen. And while some leave you with butterflies in your stomach and a smile on your face, others leave you feeling a little bit underwhelmed. Fame was definitely the latter. There was far too much hype about this movie, and Fame just didn’t measure up. There were too many story lines. And with four years condensed into less than two hours, time progressed too quickly.
