Review by Steve Rhodes
1½ stars out of 4

Let's hope that HONEY, by music video director Bille Woodruff, isn't intended to be autobiographical, since Michael Ellis (David Moscow), the music video director in the story, has only two things on his mind. While on the set, Michael spends most of his time playing with his Game Boy. When he bothers to look up, he issues only vague commands such as, "Something is missing. I don't know what." Besides his electronic toy, the only other thing that interests him is getting into the pants of his latest star discovery.

Honey Daniels (Jessica Alba), whose mother wants her to be a ballerina, has a dream -- to dance in a music video. Once she achieves that, thanks to the lecherous Michael, she instantly moves from the chorus to center stage, and, within a week, she is offered the opportunity to do the choreography as well. She, of course, never suspects that Michael might harbor some ulterior motives for his generous support of her career aspirations.

This hip hop version of FLASHDANCE is tolerable during the brief music video numbers but insufferably pretentious and downright dumb the rest of the time. The film's only successful scene occurs in a traditional music video number that runs in a window to the right of the closing credits. Save your money and have a lot more fun by watching MTV instead of this turkey.

HONEY runs a long 1:33. It is rated P-13 for "drug content and some sexual references" and would be acceptable for kids around 11 and up.
