Time Out says

Disney-flick chaste and fresh as an episode of Fame, Step Up takes innocuous movie uplift to a new level. True, the happy-footed, mushmouthed protagonist, Tyler (Tatum), is a Baltimore ghetto kid who swipes cars, but the instant he’s sentenced to community service in an arts academy, you know things will turn around. Do they ever: He lands an upper-crust hottie (Dewan) and a spot in her senior-dance showcase, as well as an apparent free ride at the school. Someone has to pay, naturally, and a comic-relief would-be larcenist is on hand for fourth-act carnage. Those unmoved by sloppy, Janet Jackson--style hoofing routines might envy his fate.
