As you know, I am in the middle of the Summer Of '80s Movies, and this is the weekend when I decide whether to enjoy Breakin' and/or Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.
The question is: How ridiculous is too ridiculous? Do I want to see one breakdancing movie, let alone two? On the other hand, aren't they iconic, in a...well, in a "how ridiculous is too ridiculous" way? Hasn't every sequel made since 1984 been referred to as [Whatever] 2: Electric Boogaloo at some point? Haven't pop-culture writers (including myself) been leaning on the "Electric Boogaloo" crutch for so long that we almost owe it to the movie to actually go?
There's only one solution, and that's to ask you. To attend (and report upon), or not to attend (and report upon), Breakin' and/or Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo?
Feel free to cast your vote. Which I promise to ... take under advisement.
