Review of ‘Work It’ Movie on Netflix
The film seems more of a pilot episode. Other characters are barely introduced in the movie scenes. There is a sweet screenplay shared by the leads Sabrina Carpenter and Fisher. The cast of the film is wisely chosen by director Terusso as it matches the concept of the film(jukebox dance-comedy).
The film’s moral is a bit confusing as it depicts ‘be yourself’ quote to achieve great heights in life and it also doesn’t focus or give importance to the academic aspect of the teen.
