Brek It Down (PG-13)

Genre: Dance flick

Troubled teen ‘September Katz’ (Ellen Page) just doesn’t get on with her parents (Drew Barrymore & Kevin Bacon). They want her to follow in their footsteps & take up Swing Dancing on ice – but September only has time for her urban, hip hop, step dance crew.

One night, as her parents drive home from the national Ice Swing Dance semi-final, their car is involved in a tragic accident. Both are killed but the family dog (Mr Boogaloo) is thrown clear & survives.

September is devastated & decides to take her parents place in the final (much to the disgust of her crew) but she needs to find a partner she can trust… & it must be someone familiar with her parent’s complicated routines?…..step forward Mr Boogaloo!

With only a week till the final, will they be able to pull it off?


How Slappy Got His Groove Back (PG-13)

Sports rehab drama starring Will Smith and Drew Barrymore.

Steve ‘Slappy’ Browne (Will Smith) is a successful professional football player, who after an on-field accident is forced into months of agonizing rehab. Whilst in rehab, he meets Dr Frances Pope (Drew Barrymore), who helps him through some tough times. In those months, the two develop an affection for each other… blah blah blah…

Climactic scene: In the pouring rain, Will Smith (in tears), sitting in his wheelchair, has decided to roll himself off a bridge into a river. Dr Pope pleads with him not to do it (“Don’t do it Slappy!”). Just as he is about roll over the side, he stands up (for the first time in months) and heaves his chair into the flowing river below. The doctor and Slappy embrace.

Possible racy love scene to follow.
