This 90-minute production is one of the most hilarious films of 2011, and fans of comedy movies are in for an absolute treat with Dance Fu. The movie revolves around the story of a young man named Chicago (played by Kel Mitchell), who is an aspiring dancer. Chicago is an energetic, talented dance enthusiast who believes he can dance his way out of any problem. However, his aspirations get challenged when he meets local martial arts student and upperclassman Bruce (played by Cedric the Entertainer), who doesn't appreciate art.

The plot starts off with Chicago participating in a dance competition, with the hopes of winning a prize that could help him cater for his grandma's medical bills. He performs incredibly well, but things take a turn when he accidentally knocks out his opponent. As it turns out, the competition was run by a shady organization that forces participants to enter into a vicious martial arts tournament with no attire, leaving the participants highly exposed.

Desperate to help his grandmother, Chicago agrees to take part in the martial arts tournament. However, with no prior knowledge in martial arts, Chicago faces an uphill task, and he's not sure whether he will be able to endure the rigors of the tournament.

To make matters worse, Chicago's ruthless ex-girlfriend decides to compete against him in the tournament, and she's determined to knock him out of the competition. In an attempt to help Chicago, his best friend convinces him that dance and martial arts are similar, and he proposes that they train Chicago in the art of 'Dance Fu'; a combination of dance and martial arts so that he may have a fighting chance in the tournament.

Enter Bruce (Cedric the Entertainer), an upperclassman and respected martial arts student known for his toughness, who hates Dance and sees no value in art. Bruce teams up with Chicago's ex-girlfriend in an effort to end Chicago's hopes of winning the tournament. Nonetheless, Chicago perseveres, and with the help of his friend, he combines martial arts and Dance in a new style.

As the tournament progresses, Chicago's street-style Dance Fu techniques unsettle his opponents, who've never seen anything like it before. His unorthodox style bewilders his competitors, and they can't keep up with his flimsy dance moves. In Dance Fu, the audience can expect to see a lot of traditional martial arts scenes, mixed with hilarious dance moves and humor.

As the tournament progresses, the tension heightens, and the audience is left wondering if Chicago will win against all odds.

This family-friendly movie will leave a smile on your face while delivering the message of following your passion and dreams.
