I am planning to design a lesson plan around this movie for high school. The students are inspired by the athleticism and teamwork of stomping. Talk about working to do your personal best regardless of supremely difficult obstacles! Great movie... will there be more?

Wow! It brought back some of my own College memories of fraternity and sorority parties! Yes, the plot was somewhat predictable; however, nevertheless, it was quite entertaining. I sum up this experience as clean wholesome fun for the entire family with a message about perserverance, brotherhood and love....I plan on buying the movie and watching it with my nieces and nephews.

The New York Times
A strange and at times strangely compelling mix of black fraternity recruitment video and inspirational tale about a hip-hop boy in a stepping world. Full Review

USA Today
Given its predictable story, the only reason to see Stomp is for the rhythmic step dancing. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Stepping is everything in Stomp the Yard, and, dare I say it, a stepping stone to DJ's redemption. The movie itself is redeemed -- slightly -- by its almost touching devotion to the hoary Hollywood traditions of college movies with battling frats, as well as its earnest endorsement of education. Full Review
Justin Chang
The dancing is more dynamic than the plotting in Stomp the Yard, an energetic if formulaic underdog tale about warring black fraternities specializing in an intensely competitive style of step dancing. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
As the central character in this musical melodrama about step dancing in black fraternities, Short displays an uncanny dramatic sensibility to go with the eye-catching athleticism of his dance moves. Full Review
