Step Up: All InClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Step Up: All In -- the fifth installment in the popular dance-flick franchise -- stars several leads from the previous movies (think of it as Step Up: All Stars). Like the other Step Up movies, there's a little bit of romance and a whole lot of over-the-top dance sequences. Most audiences by now understand that these movies aren't known for their performances or plot lines but for the dancing; this one has the added bonus of featuring some fan favorites from the past few films. This franchise targets tweens and teens, particularly those interested in hip-hop and dance crews. Expect some swearing (one "f--king," plus "s--t," "d--k," etc.), social drinking by young adults (once to the point of tipsiness), kissing/sexual tension, pushing/shoving, and a healthy dose of product placement.
- Sexual Content
- Sexual tension between two of the dancers, who finally share a big kiss at the end of the movie. Another set of dancers are an established couple who live together and kiss a few times. A few other couples kiss as well.
- Some pushing and shoving, a bar room brawl, and several harmless dance battles.
- One "f--king," plus occasional use of "s--t," "ass," "a--hole," "d--k," "douchebag," "bastard," etc.
- Social Behavior
- The life of a dancer is difficult but rewarding, and friends should watch out for one another, not let differences grow into resentment.
- VH1 is heavily featured as the cable network that's sponsoring the competition. Other brands featured include Adidas, Nike, Range Rover, Google, and many Las Vegas hotels.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- The dancers, who all look to be in their early to mid 20s, drink socially and -- in one case -- get a bit tipsy.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
