Move over, power of love. Step aside, power of cheese. If Honey is any indication, the power of dance represents the last hope for humanity. Take Honey Daniels (Jessica Alba), a dreamer looking to make good through the magic of hip-hop choreography! She uses the neighborhood center to teach munchkin criminals how to dance to Ludacris by day, then works nights at a club waiting for her chance to become—remember, kids, aim high—a backup dancer on MTV. Soon, she meets a big-time producer, but (spoiler alert!) he wants to sleep with her. Now it’s Honey time! We’ll be first to admit that Alba’s bare midriff is sufficient premise for a movie, even if Master P’s kid keeps dancing around it. But before we could decipher her ham-fisted use of ghetto slang like “peoples” and “wil’ out,” we were lobotomized by enough inspirational pap to drive us back to the “electric slide.”
