I had to be really really bored to sit through this whole thing
21 September 2009 | by doerfler1321See all my reviews

This movie was full of horrible acting even by the few prominent actors that were in it. I expected that a movie called steppin would have more steppin in it. All this movie did was showcase a bunch of bad writing, a bunch of actors with dead eyes, and very little not so great steppin. The insertion of well known actors was ridiculous and were obviously just stuck in to get people to come see it, but the writing was so bad that even the good actors were bad. Maybe if the director listed wasn't dead while filming it might have turned out better. I think that it was a good idea, just not well thought out. If you are really bored and there is nothing else around to watch then and only then would I recommend this movie.
