Chicago has successfully reignited the song-and-dance craze, and while the Oscar winner may seem to have it all, it can’t lay claim to any of the following: a guy break-dancing in a chicken costume, pregnant women pop-rocking in a maternity ward, and such timeless battle cries as ”Electros rule the dance floor now, sucka!” But you will find all of those things in Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo. And, honestly, who needs Renee, Richard, and Catherine when you have guys like ”Shabba-Doo” and ”Boogaloo Shrimp”? While the story line–a bunch of breakers trying to save a community center from demolition–doesn’t have the same heat as a pair of murdering dames, it does allow Ice-T to bust out the very un-Ice-T rap of ”This is not a party, this is a demonstration/To try to counteract the city council’s legislation.” Only slightly less campy is the 1990 dirty-dancing epic Lambada, also starring Shabba-Doo (who apparently got tired of spinning on his head for a living). Chockful of major-league groping, cameras practically shoved up women’s derrieres, and the oldest-looking high school students ever recorded on film, it’s less risque than ridiculous.= In other words, you’ll love it.
