If you are familiar with Vlog Squad, you must’ve heard Liza Koshy and seeing her in the trailer quickly attracted me to watch this movie. This movie is about Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter) a straight-A student that dreamed to enter Duke University. Liza Koshy in the other hand, played as her bestfriend who’s very talented in dancing and she’s part of the dance group called Thunderbirds which led by Julliard Pembroke or prefer to be known as Isaiah (Keiynan Lonsdale). During Quinn interview for Duke, she lied to someone at Duke Admission that she was part of Thunderbirds so she could be accepted into Duke.
Desperate to be part of the Work It dance competition, she audition for Thunderbirds however she didn’t make the cut and decided to form her own dance group with the help of her bestfriend. She convinced Jasmine to quit Thunderbirds and put together her own new dance team called “TBD”. Down the road, she also met a Jake Taylor – who you may recognize from another Netflix Original, To All the Boys: P.S. I Love You, Jordan Fisher. Jake Taylor was a hotshot dancer that helped them to choreograph their dance moves.
The movie is quite entertaining especially with Liza Koshy in it. Although the storyline has been done a thousand times before but it’s refreshing to see new faces in the movie and a perfect movie for teenage slumber party. Overall, I know some may hate it and some may love it, but for me it’s a decent movie to watch and I really love the part where Quinn and Jake dance! It’s truly beautiful.
