c me dance

Do you ever make it to the final credits of a movie and wonder WHY did I just spend waste an hour and a half watching that? Maybe you keep watching, thinking it just has to get better, but it never does? Or maybe you keep watching because it’s SO bad and you’re laughing hysterically at how horrible it really is.

I just watched a movie like that. Browsing the dance titles on Netflix, I chose “C Me Dance.”  The movie opens with an odd highway scene, cutting between the terrified driver of a car, a baby in the back seat, and the front grill of a truck barreling down the road.  I had to pause the movie, thinking I had accidentally started a weird horror flick because it surely didn’t seem like a dance movie.

I had the right film. I should have moved onto a different movie right then and there, but if I had done that, I wouldn’t be writing this blog post, you lucky people.

First of all, I’m sure there’s someone somewhere that was blessed or touched by this movie. I am not one of those people. This is one of those films that gives Christian media a bad name with its sub-par acting combined with a ridiculous script. Before I started watching, I didn’t even realize it was a religious piece. Jesus lyrics blaring at the shopping mall–that was the giveaway.

I liked the dancing and most of the music was pretty good too.  During one of the scenes, I thought I recognized a couple of the dancers. I thought, no, it can’t be. Well, maybe it could be. Then I saw their names scroll by in the previously mentioned credits. Well, I’ll be! Hot diggedy dog. It was the Ballet Magnficat dancers. They were the best part of the movie.

The story line was absurd and unbelievable. I leave you with the official trailer so you can see for yourself.

  1. WHAT??!! I…uh…who… ugh, I just don’t know what to say. Horrified, maybe! It’s bad enough we have to screen even the PG movies, but the Christian ones, too? The trailer was scary to me. Maybe their goal was to give us a visual of how the “realness” of it can be for some who have shared a story like this. I don’t know. I was distracted and remember more of the evil scenes than the good. Who had the spotlight? Christ or Satan? The trailer seems to show the latter. You summed it up nicely with the 2 words: absurd and unbelievable (I’m just adding SCARY!).

  2. I couldn’t really figure out what the plot is supposed to be from this movie. So, we’ve got a young girl who just wants to dance ballet. We’ve got a scary dude who might be Satan. We’ve got someone diagnosed with something that sounds pretty bad, and I’m guessing cancer, but I don’t know which character it is. The girl? Her mother who doesn’t really make an appearance in the trailer? Oh, and we’ve got someone telling the girl that God has chosen her, but for what I don’t know, and we’ve got a car accident scene possibly caused by the scary Satan dude. Not sure how it all ties together…
