Story revolves around a young boxer, Izzy Daniels, who trains to follow in his father's footsteps by winning the Golden Glove. When his friend, Mary, however, asks him to substitute for a team member in a Double Dutch tournament, the young man discovers a hidden passion for jump roping
Absolutely the worst movie.
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
The film may be flawed, but its message is not.
This is a disgusting piece of garbage. Simple as that. The acting is horrifyingly wooden, the direction is woeful and the script? I just wanted to kill myself every time the characters opened their mouthes. The situations were amazingly UN-realistic, i mean how many people seriously go to a skip rope competition? And why is everyone such a stereotype? Who seriously even would laugh at that, or tease someone because of that? Are these teenagers or 5 year olds? It was just a supremely irritating film, and highly advise anyone with half a brain cell to avoid this at all costs. Now excuse me while I swallow a bottle of painkillers.
It's fun to watch the Jump Roping scenes. It's amazing to watch these kids do what I could only dream of doing. I'm too old to be jumping like that now. I don't know what would have happen way back when. Corbin Bleu is very talented and is the reason why the film works so well.The story is your standard sports inspirational film. It's filled with touching moments and reconciliation between arch rivals. There is some romance and the typical father who wants his son to be just like him but understands when he wants to change his interests in life.Not a bad film. Wouldn't add it to my library but it might be worth a rental. After you watch both 'High School Musicals' of course. If you don't want to sit through the whole film, go to the bonus features and watch the music videos with some 'Jump In' Highlights.
The movie was the BEST movie I've EVER seen! Not only does it have me hero/idol Corbin Bleu in it but all the actors had such great chemistry! In less then 3 days I watched it 9 times because I have it on my DVR. They all worked so hard to learn Double Dutch(well most of them) and it really shows! The music fit every part perfectly,and I think this is a really good movie for people of all ages! You can tell the passion for Double Dutch every time it's mentioned and Corbin(Izzy) never had even thought of doing it before. Not only is the Double Dutching AMAZING but the actors are amazing also! They really look like they have the drive and ambition as needed to come off as someone who really has a major passion for Double Dutching! It's almost like they've been doing it the entire lives. I hope everyone gets a chance to see it and I'm sure you will enjoy it!
I hope it comes out with a sequel! It was the best movie EVER except for HSM and HSM 2! The Double Dutch is amazing and it is all actually Corbin Bleu! His real dad plays Izzy's dad and the 'rememorable quotes' section that saying, Corbin and his dad said that is almost real life for them! Keke Palmer is really good at double dutch too! But one girl on their old team is really mean. As I was saying Keke Palmer does a great job but some of her smiles are slightly unrealistic! If you like some of the background music, check out the soundtrack! Corbin is a great singer! As well as Keke! They did a great job and I hope there will be a sequel!
