Kids these days

OUT NOW! An X Factor-style dazzle of youths in STREETDANCE ALL STARS showcases not very much.

If you believe that the youth today wear baggy neon clothes, travel exclusively on day-glo BMXs and take breaks from popping and/or locking to stare in cartoon bafflement at LPs or dabble in freestyle rap, this will confirm it all. If, however, you suspect that the truth is simultaneously lamer and less wholesome, give this sweet-natured effort – set in the friendliest shabby-chic London you’ve never seen – a miss. Mark Heap’s pantomime moustache is wonderful, though.

Streetdance All Stars | Directed by Ben Gregor (UK 2013) with Akai Osei-Manfield, Theo Stevenson. Starts January 2
