This is cooler than cool. Probably a guilty pleasure, as the movie appears to be a thinly-veiled remake of Flashdance starring Jessica Alba, but it swings like a narcissistic cat. Missy Elliott (who cameos in the film) lures us in with "Hurt Sumthin", and it just gets better from there. Tweet's "Thugman" is delicious, Nate Dogg's "Leave Her Alone" is beat-perfect, and Erick Sermon and Redman's "React" causes you to do just that.

This is cooler than cool. Probably a guilty pleasure, as the movie appears to be a thinly-veiled remake of Flashdance starring Jessica Alba, but it swings like a narcissistic cat. Missy Elliott (who cameos in the film) lures us in with “Hurt Sumthin”, and it just gets better from there. Tweet’s “Thugman” is delicious, Nate Dogg’s “Leave Her Alone” is beat-perfect, and Erick Sermon and Redman’s “React” causes you to do just that. Best of all is “Closer” by Gospele, which slinks and purrs like nothing since Brandy and Monica’s first hit (keep up, kids). The pure R&B answer to 8 Mile, it drips and oozes in all the right crevices. Sweet.
