Ok, so the template mightn’t be as fresh as the original, the lass (Miko, of “Coyote Ugly” fame) stepping in for Julia Stiles mightn’t have the acting ability of her predecessor, and the script mightn’t be as gripping, but the dance sequences will undoubtedly shake the socks right off of ya! They’re terrific, possibly even more so than those in the first film. This time, we aren’t simply seeing a profusion of hip-hop infused dance moves, but also a sensational display of classical dance – and later, a profusion of both styles – that will grip any ballerina (like myself) to the screen. There’s some really impressive moves in this, and thought that won’t be enough to attract a mass audience, combined with the enjoyable storyline, it might be.

OK, so it’s about as necessary as a raincoat for a fish – but not every enjoyable bit of fluff needs to have a purpose, right?

Granted, films like “Save the last Dance” and now “Save the Last Dance 2” – being released direct-to-video, or rather, DVD – are aimed at a pretty skinny niche. The sequel, without its original stars (Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas) and Ice Cube-led soundtrack may even have a bigger fight for an audience.

Picking up where the first film left off, “Save the Last Dance 2” sees Sara (Izabella Miko) enter the prestigious Julliard dance school, where she immediately comes to blows with her instructor (Jacqueline Bissett) and her vintage lesson plans. With the help of a few new friends, Sara ultimately puts on a show demonstrating just how exciting ballet can be if you ‘mix it up’ a bit.

Ok, so the template mightn’t be as fresh as the original, the lass (Miko, of “Coyote Ugly” fame) stepping in for Julia Stiles mightn’t have the acting ability of her predecessor, and the script mightn’t be as gripping, but the dance sequences will undoubtedly shake the socks right off of ya!

This is one of the better direct-to-DVD releases in quite some time. Leave your tutu at the stage door, and enjoy!

Extras include a brief featurette on the making of the film, plus trailers of the first and second films.
