Jump In!

This is one of those examples where studio execs catch on to a trend, usually to late, and run around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to capitalize on it. In this case they're dealing with skipping ropes and I will admit to finding the competition scenes interesting as they sure don't jump rope they way I remember as a kid. Paul Hoen is a veteran television director so JUMP IN! achieves what it's meant to which is a little afternoon film for the kids to watch after school. Corbin Bleu. who we saw in GALAXY QUEST provides the eye candy for the tweenie boppers and Keke Palmer, who we recently saw in CLEANER and of AKEELAH AND THE BEE fame easily carries the drama. One for the rug rats but as I mentioned, the competiton scenes will be of interest to all.
