Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A slick, disposable soap opera about a poor white boy and a spirited Korean girl who fall in love despite hailing from rival corners of Brooklyn's club scene."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"Scenes from the competing clubs include impressive choreography and gravity-defying moves. If only the poorly delivered, trite dialogue and predictable plot aimed as high."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"Star-crossed dance romance doesn't have the best moves."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"The average person's enjoyment of this dance flick can best be gauged by starting at the feet and progressing upward, with the brain coming in last."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
""Make Your Move" shows us the whole dancer. These sequences really move in a way that feels organic."
‑ Sheila O'Malley,
"A soapy, flashy confection that juxtaposes Mr. Hough's tap dancing with the Japanese drumming style Taiko, tossed with liberal helpings of contemporary hip-hop moves."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"It's cheesy fun for sure, but fun nonetheless."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"[...] The irresistibly dopey Make Your Move drops the spectacle endemic to most dance films in favor of a forward-thinking sweetness. [...] What the film lacks in authenticity, however, it makes up for in good intentions and simple pleasures."
‑ David Ehrlich, The Dissolve
"Doesn't move nearly as smoothly as anyone on screen thinks it does, but at least it takes us along with it."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"A fantasy with dance and PG-13 sensuality, making it easily digestible, but its familiarity is deflating, making the movie feel about as impulsive and energetic as a dance step diagram."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Whenever actor Derek Hough and BoA stop leaping and twirling ... "Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"An entirely generic drama in which two characters actually say to one another, "What if this doesn't work?" "It has to.""
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"Here is the central reason why dance movies work so well: They cannot be faked."
‑ Witney Seibold, Nerdist
"The plot is completely shallow and endlessly derivative, but the performers manage somehow to pierce through the cliché-ridden morass and offer some charm...Make Your Move delivers a reliably good time."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
