A documentary about black young people, from pre-teen to early twenties living in South Central L.A. and Inglewood that have eschewed gangs and violence for organizing troupes of dancing clowns, I kid you not. It was interesting and entertaining for most of the running time but ran out of direction for about the last twenty minutes, becoming somewhat dull. I couldn't help but think if these young people put the drive, energy and initiative into academic pursuits that they were putting into being a break-dancing clown, they would ultimately enjoy a far better pay off. They even misspelled the title.
