Emily arrives in Miami with aspiratins of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean, a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate flash mobs, call "The Mob." When a wealthy business man threatens to develop The Mob's historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.
Drama Musical Romantic - Like the previous three films, this is a dance-driven film aimed
primarily at teen and young adult moviegoers. Story is not the draw
but elaborate dance numbers, which like the third film are enhanced
by the 3D. There is some suggestive dancing and mild language but on
the whole is safe viewing for older kids.
PROFANITY: The S-word is spoken once. There are 11 other profanities spoken. SEX/NUDITY: Some brief, clothed sexy dancing between young men and women. VIOLENCE: A man punches and tackles another; men grab each other. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol drinking at bars and clubs; some cigar smoking. ACTION: None COMEDY: Comic banter and wisecracks, nothing off-color; some cute kid humor.
