Move over Dirty Dancing, take a hike Save the Last Dance - it's Honey's time to groove! This new feel-good, butt-shaking flick is sure to have ya groovin'! Check it out!
Honey Daniels (played by Jessica Alba) is an NYC girl who teaches dance at the local Youth Center that her mom runs - that is, when she's not auditioning for music vids. Honey's got mad skills but she can't seem to catch a break - until someone films her dancing with their video camera and it catches the eye of a big-time music video director. Then everything - from her bank account, to her love life, to her goals - changes for Honey.
Honey: Hip Hop Hurray!
Honey is filled with killer music and stylin' dance moves. Lil' Romeo is awesome as Benny, a 'hood kid with some stylin' moves, but major 'tude. And, Mekhi Phifer is adorable as Chaz, a cutie barber who's got the hots for Honey. The total scene-stealers are Raymond (played by Zachary Isaiah Williams) and Gina (played by Joy Bryant). Gina is Honey's loud-mouthed but good-hearted best friend and Raymond is Benny's little bro with the big hair. The movie's awesome dance moves are only topped by its killer soundtrack. You'll be hearing Jadakiss, Missy Elliott, Tweet, Blaque and more - and you'll be seeing some of 'em too. Major cameos in this flick!
Honey: Not So Sweet
Honey's only draw back is the not-so stellar acting on the part of Jessica Alba and David Moscow (who plays Michael Ellis, the video director). Luckily, because of Jessica's moves and style, and the whole vibe of the flick - the bad acting doesn't actually matter much.
Honey: The Last Dance
If you're into feel-good films - or movies with dance themes - this one rocks. You'll be dancing in your seat!
