Dance movies. Love them or hate them, they are a major part of pop culture and they probably aren’t going away any time soon. There have been some hits and there have definitely been some misses, but even some of the most farfetched dance movies are still highly entertaining. Here’s a list of 7 dance movies (some classics and some that are so bad, they’re good) that all have one thing in common: Ridiculous storylines.

7. From Justin To Kelly

After competing against each other in the first ever American Idol, way back in 2002, winner Kelly Clarkson and runner-up Justin Guarini went on to co-star in this musical, romantic comedy. Set in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, From Justin To Kelly tells the story of Kelly Taylor, a singing waitress from Texas, and Justin Bell, a college student from Pennsylvania who is visiting Florida over Spring Break. Not only did this movie win a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst “Musical” of Our First 25 Years at the 25th Golden Raspberry Awards in 2005, but the film was considered so bad that the commercial soundtrack was never officially released!

6. Make It Happen

In Make It Happen, Lauryn Kirk dreams of becoming a professional dancer. Unfortunately, there are no dance schools in her hometown of Glenwood, Indiana, so she travels to Chicago to audition for the prestigious Chicago School of Music and Dance. After an unsuccessful audition where she is told she lacks femininity, Lauryn is asked to return in a few weeks to try again. She regroups at a local diner and, to make matters worse, her car is towed! Not to worry. She moves in with the friendly waitress she just met, who introduces her to the world of burlesque dancing. Lauryn begins working at the night club, helping out with the books, but she soon finds herself on stage. With the help of her new friends and her musically talented love interest, Lauryn begins to discover a whole new side to the world of dance.
