Pros: intriguing dance steps, tight choreography     Cons: ...     The Bottom Line:   “Ooh...Verbal vomit...I keep one on it  Not the scrill but you can call me ebonics  Sideshows goin nutty dumbin out”  ~E40     I can’t say I was completely enthralled with Stomp The Yard but I certainly found it interesting.

Pros: Dance, dance, dance, acting.      Cons: A few cliques.     The Bottom Line: Stomp The Yard's message of unity and brotherhood is universal.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. It’s not often that I take the family to see a just released film, let alone that has been open less than a week, but Stomp The Yard was an exception. My wife and I had seen previews of the movie during Dreamgirls …
