    Vin Diesel is very good at doing what Vin Diesel does and he does it well in this movie.

    ★½

    This gets 1.5 stars only because the dancing was actually kind of good. Everything else about this movie was awful: the characters, the plot, the music, the fact that for some unknown reason the exterior scenes were all shot in NYC but the subway scenes were very obviously shot in a completely different transit system?!?

    Disclaimer: I watched this because of HDTGM, so I knew it was going to be bad, but oof. It was like a terrible combo of Coyote Ugly and Step Up, without any of the excitement or charm of either of those movies.

    ★★★½

    Clearly I'm at the "watch all the Twilight movies" stage of pandemic isolation.

    This movie is bonkers. The soundtrack is awesome, the makeup/effects are great, and Anna Kendrick steals the one bit she's in. But overall this movie is just ridiculous (in kind of a good way, I think, but honestly I can't be sure).
