Step Up and Take The Lead

Earlier this year, I remember seeing ads for "Take The Lead," yet another movie about young dancers overcoming the odds while falling in love. It made an uninspiring $30 million at the box office with a cast that included Antonio Banderas and a cast of unknowns.

Now, I'm seeing ads for "Step Up," which not only looks 90 percent identical to "Take The Lead," but also features one of the same cast members: Jenna Dewan.

It's bad enough you're remaking a stale movie. It's worse when you don't bother to recast it.
