TOO MANY MISSTEPS Stomp the Yard comes alive in its dancing scenes, but trips up in meaningless subplots like the romance between Short and Meagan Good (pictured)

Details Release Date: Jan 12, 2007; Rated: PG-13; Length: 114 Minutes; Genre: Drama; With: Meagan Good and Columbus Short; Distributor: Screen Gems Inc.

The latest arcane, MTV-icized group activity to receive the loud, busy, generic music-video treatment is stepping, a choreographic tradition of Greek campus life at black universities. In Stomp the Yard, one handsome former L.A. tough (Columbus Short) finds his feet — and a welcome reason to take off his shirt — among other similarly shirtless-worthy Atlanta fraternity brothers. The shallow frat-on-frat rivalry and the poor-boy-loves-rich-girl subplot don't mean a thing. But the stepping does got that swing. C+
