Review B-

August 11, 2006|By CHRIS KALTENBACH | CHRIS KALTENBACH,SUN MOVIE CRITIC

Bad boy meets good girl; boy cleans up act; everyone goes home happy.

Scholars aren't sure, but many think this may be the oldest plotline in drama; certainly, the redemptive power of a good woman has been a dramatic staple since Beauty was first civilizing her Beast.

Step Up (Touchstone Pictures) Starring Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Mario. Directed by Anne Fletcher. Rated PG-13. Time 98 minutes.
