HONEY 3: DARE TO DANCE REVIEWED
“Honey 3” completes the Honey trilogy by reinventing itself in South Africa. That doesn’t sound right. “Honey 3” drops Alba about a decade ago and keeps lingering on home video. Closer to the truth. About the film? Well, a young girl puts on a dance show in public because she can’t pay her school tuition. Mickey Rooney used to make movies out of less.
If you’re really super into dancing, then this will be enough to keep your interest up. That being said, it’s 97 minutes of international teen melodrama mixed together with low budget dance numbers. I never would’ve thought that I’d be clamoring for high level complexity of “Honey”. But, it’s a new era and that’s where we reside. If your loved one makes you watch the film, be glad in the fact that the immersive sound field will cover your snoring.
For some reason, you stay a fan of this franchise…I’d recommend revisiting the two prior flicks. It’s been weird to see a niche franchise take a sharp turn in its third iteration. But, Jaws and Halloween did the same. Learn from the best, I guess.

The Plot Thus Far
At a prestigious South African school, Melea and her boyfriend imagine a hip-hop version of Romeo and Juliet, but Melea’s dreams are dashed when she’s unable to pay tuition and is forced to leave. Determined to fulfill her destiny, she does the unthinkable – persuades the community to support her artistic and unique vision. When adrenaline-filled rehearsals cause dance crew rivals and egos to get in the way, everything falls apart. Once again, Melea dares to dream and risks it all to put on a performance you’ll never forget. From the director of Honey and Honey 2, Honey 3 is full of dance, romantic love triangles and heart-pumping music you won’t want to miss.
