The directorial debut from Nick Cannon (TV’s “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out,” TV’s “America’s Got Talent”) features a who’s who of urban comedy kings including Bobb’e J.

High school freshman Jason (Thompson) has just found the girl of his dreams Anastacia (DeBarge), but there is one problem. She has no idea he exists. He is pretty sure he has found a solution though: join the school’s hottest dance crew, which will be no easy feat. Before he can get his shot he will have to overcome his battle-ax of a mom, survive Anastacia’s gangsta brother and pass the crew’s initiation; will Jason be able to get through all of these obstacles and get his shot with the girl?
