Seductive performance from Jada Pinkett-Smith, endearing performance from Channing Tatum, inventive dance sequences, naturalistic/spontaneous banter, ultra-buff men, spirited finale.

  • CRITICS DON'T LIKE

    Bumpy, overlong, shambling, directionless. Several long/pointless/drawn-out scenes, messy/muddled subplots, one-note characters, disappointing ending, loose editing, lacks energy, too much build-up, not enough payoff, faintly demeaning.
