Is this a bad movie? No I don't think so. Would I ever want to watch it again? Same answer.

It is really really family friendly stuff. Like the whole family can sit down on a Sunday night and watch this. Or like you can stick it on to keep the kids happy during Quarantine or the summer holidays.

Did I find anything in this movie remotely funny? No but I'm not a 9 year old so maybe they would. I sometimes struggle to tell if a younger audience would find stuff funny. When I was a kid would I have found this movie funny, no probably not.

So it's easy watching and like "feel good" I guess. So you could stick it on your children and maybe watch it with them unless you have something better to do.

This is defintly Sofia Carson at her best. Her character in this movie is so unlikable and mean, borderline the villain in fact, which is a nice change from the teeny bopper DIsney Channel characters she usually plays. I would actually like to see a movie where she is 100% villain. I know she was Sandman's daughter in that Spider-Man episode, but I want a full movie where she's like a full psycho evil classic villain.

Ok, so plot-wise, this is pretty much beat for beat (no pun intended) School of Rock, but with dance instead of rock band, but not nearly as funny. It's predictable, yes, but still enjoyable. it feels very 90s in some parts, but I think that was kind of the point. The young kids in this film also give very believable performances. I thought this was a fun movie. Netflix lied about the rating, though. They have it listed as TV-G, but it is definitely a PG-13. Mild language, some suggestive content, some...teenage situations, let's say. It's about the same level as School of Rock (which is also PG-13) in terms of content. I hope Sofia gets more roles that show her range. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, cast her as a villain. (Evie from Descendants doesn't count. She wasn't actually a villain, she was just vain.) Grade: B 8/10 4/5 stars

It's hard to find a feel good film these days. And as a father of three young daughters I appreciate this film. It was fun, clean and beautiful!

This is a nice feel-good inspiring movie for the whole family.

Yes, it's another one of those "A former star helps misfits do *something* and they rock it" type of movie, but as if anyone cares, we're here to spend an evening eating ice-cream and trying to relax, nobody expects it to be an Oscar-material. And the movie just does its job as goof as possible. The kids are adorable and acting pretty good, the plot is cheesy and predictable but still cute, funny and not Hallmark-level predictable. The lead actress is gorgeous doing a great job performing a rather complex and unlikable character.

Really enjoyed watching it, actually almost didn't stop it to look at the phone, so would recommend it!

I like that the movie shows some real life occasions and stuff that I have never seen in this way in movies. Also I love the dancing in the movie and the IMPORTANT MASSAGE. Didn't expect to enjoy this movie that much.

Feel the Beat (3 out of 5 stars).

Feel the Beat is a cute fair family film. When big shot dancer April (Sofia Carlson) blows an audition that turns bad. She moves back home to a small town where she tries to teach and coach a bunch of young girls dancers. Soon enough, they make go on a competition tour.

The plot is cute and charming. It can be predictable with its story. April lost the big leagues in dancing. And teaches a group of girls that has yet to compete. The girls and April do not easily get along. When the girls are looking up to her. But April is critical. She also runs into her former boyfriend which she ran out on cause she wanted to move to the city. And he stayed in there home town.

The direction and script is cheesy. With cheesy dialgoue. Can be cringing with its direction. But it tries to have a lot of fun.

Sofia Carlson is good with the role. She is fun. Charming. And beautiful.

100 spoiler-free.

I have absolutely no idea how I ended up watching this film. I read the one-sentence summary on Netflix, saw the N for Netflix and 2020, and hit play.

This movie was surprisingly really entertaining, fun, and enjoyable.

The story actually made sense, as in, it was written well and properly. The event of the start of the film leads to what happens to the rest of the film and it made sense. I think the movie starts out "weak and superficial", whatever that means, but later the movie becomes truly meaningful and special.

The ending - was great and I could not be happier with it.

Sofia Carson - the protagonist; her acting and dancing skills were immediately apparent and made me curious about the rest of the movie. Her presence carried the film for awhile until the kids took over - they helped the movie really good. The supporting cast helped too.

Brandon Kyle Goodman - great addition to the film. Great acting; excellent character overall. I only wish the kids had had more interaction with him and vice versa.

Wolfgang Novogratz - good acting; good role overall.

Eva Hauge - played Sara; she did great.

*Shaylee Mansfield - played Zuzu; she did great. Just found out she is deaf in real life. In the film she states she can "feel the vibrations" and later when I found out she really is deaf I realized maybe that is why the movie is titled Feel the Beat. At first I thought the title was weak, but after this realization, it only feels right. Loved the addition of sign language throughout the film too. It all makes sense now.

The little kids - I thought they did great overall for their ages. Because of them this is a family-oriented film that can be enjoyed at home with the family.

The guy that plays father to two of the kids and/or Zuzu - could not find his name, but good job; he had a couple good scenes.

Supporting cast - they did fine; some better than others, but overall good enough to deliver a good film.

Music - I personally think that there was a good selection of music. I even added a couple of them to my personal library. For example:

"Always" by Francois Klark (& by Sofia Carson at the end of the film) "A little more" by Alessia Cara "Us" by Regina Spektor "Never forgive you" by Brooke Villanyi (21:14 - 21:52)

Director - Elissa Down - great job. Story writers - Michael Armbruster & Shawn Ku - great job. Cinematography - Amir Mokri - good job. Producer - Susan Cartsonis - thank you for helping make the film a reality.

And everyone else who helped make this film - you did a great job.

Conclusion: this was a well-written, fun, entertaining, cute, enjoyable, meaningful, and family movie about kids. It is definitely worth a watch, preferably with the family with kids, or not. Anyone can enjoy this film.

I personally feel that the acting was very realistic and the message was very clear. Very good movie with a bit of comedy and real life situations. 100% family movie.

I personally like movies when you have a plot, but not every single detail is predictable from the beginning. You can absolutely watch this with the whole family, even children and it'll leave beautiful messages to learn like: Be strong, fight for what you want without stepping over someone else and you will get it, leave all your problems aside when someone needs you and always give it all. It's totally worth your time.
