''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 Renée, 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.''
