Dumped by his partner just before a major dance competition, gifted hoofer Scott Hastings (Paul Mercurio) is forced to take a graceless neophyte (Tara Morice) as his new partner. But much to everyone's surprise, Scott soon turns his unpromising protégé into a topnotch dancer.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's a bit of cursing, some drinking, and one brief scene with a half-clothed couple (not the protagonists) in bed. Younger kids may need a little help understanding why Fran's father is so outraged over his grown-up daughter's platonic friendship with a personable young man. The "mockumentary" format and the exaggerated, over-the-top humor might leave younger kids lost, but teens and sophisticated tweens will enjoy it.
