Viewing Notes

Given that I’m a middle-aged white boy from Arkansas who grew up in Illinois, I have a strange liking for breakdancing. It stems from watching live breakdancing competitions at a local Pizza Hut back in the day, and probably from the fact that my first date ever involved taking a girl named Jenny to see Breakin’ II: Electric Boogaloo.

(insert uncomfortable silence here)

B-Girl was a fun watch. The acting isn’t brilliant, but not bad either, and the plotline is take it or leave it. The draw here is the dancing. It’s just fun to watch B-Boys and B-Girls break, and they do a great job of it here on a small budget, especially lead actress Jules Urich (who you can also see in Step Up II: The Streets and You Got Served.

Probably not for everyone, but I enjoyed it.
