The pitch: It's Drumline meets Happy Feet!
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just because a movie is flawed doesn't mean it can't be entertaining. Which is why it amazes me still that there are movies pumped out of Hollywood again and again that seem determined to do anything but entertain.

"Stomp the Yard" is a mess. I'll give the filmmakers and actors a nod of respect for at least appearing to have tried to make a decent flick, but as a wise old Jedi troll once said: "Try not. Do or do not, there is no try." Just because you try to put on a decent movie doesn't mean it's going to be; and "Stomp" most assuredly wasn't.

I equate films like this to chick flicks. While this wasn't a chick flick, it mimics that awful genre in damn near every way. Leading character suffers tragedy of some sort (of varying degrees, depending on the movie's intention--make you cry, make you happy, inspire you, etc.), experiences a change of scene, begins to flourish, is reminded of tragedy and begins to fall apart again, is uplifted by new friends to overcome tragedy, and ultimately become a better person. For chick flicks, insert love interest for "new friends" and you've got yourself a real tearjerker.

I'll admit, the stomping moments of the film were cool. Had this been a documentary about that whole stomping culture, I know I would have enjoyed this a whole lot more. But since all the cool stomping parts are buried under a lot of sappy, seen-it-all-before filler, "Stomp the Yard" ends up labeled as one of the duller movie-going moments in my life, and will be filed away in my memory banks as such.

Remember kids: It's not a black or white thing--it's a sucky movie thing. Can you dig?
