Filled with dance routines and Big Apple magic - and starring Louis Gossett Jr. and Vondie Curtis-Hall - this touching family drama shows that you're never out of luck when you have a dream.
My Thoughts

Breaking Brooklyn is the inspiring story of two young brothers. Aaron has dreamed all his life of being a dancer and Albee is looking for love. The pair have been struggling to get by, and when their dad walks out on them, they are left to fend for themselves.  They soon find themselves living on the streets of New York. Then they happen upon a dancer named Miles who decides to help them out. He gives them a home and teaches Aaron all about dance in true Broadway style.

This a great movie filled with music and dance that will have you tapping your toes. The touching story line proves that there is always a chance for dreams to come true if you work hard enough. This is a great movie with a good moral. It's the perfect choice for family movie night because kids of all ages will enjoy it, and so will their parents.
