Honey Daniels (Jessica Alba of TV’s Dark Angel) dreams of making it big as a hip-hop dancer in this drama. She works two jobs and teaches street dancing to inner-city youth. Her mother and father, who operate a community center in a poor section of New York City, encourage Honey to see the world and not waste her life helping in the center. Honey becomes a professional dancer and gets her opportunity. Soon, she is choreographing music videos for top-selling rappers. But her career derails, leaving her out of dancing, when she refuses the romantic advances of her boss (David Moscow). Meanwhile, Honey has befriended a young boy whose family has been corrupted by drugs. She realizes that dancing could save youth from a life on the streets. She pays the down payment on an old building to turn it into a dance studio. A friend encourages her to hold a benefit performance to raise the rest of the money, but her former boss offers her another position as a dancer. She must choose between her career and helping at-risk kids.
Backed by good intentions, this film tries to send some positive messages, but it fails to hit its mark. The heroine has a heart to help street kids and takes time out of her busy schedule to look after children of drug addicts. Sadly, the script contains crude and obscene language and numerous scenes with scantily dressed women and men, including the heroine. Honey is not as sweet as it could be.
