Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984)

dir. Sam Firstenberg

The title that launched a thousand memes. Three street dancers attempt to stop the demolition of a local community centre that the big bad establishment want to turn into that hive of greed and vice, a shopping mall. Obviously this is a standard tale of the little guy facing the man, and using the power of community spirit – not to mention, of course, hip dance moves – to overcome the man’s evil. Oh, and Ice-T is in it. The movie quite obviously does believe in the story it’s telling, as basic and generic as it is. It’s just endearingly goofy in its sincerity. About as goofy as the title Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.
