Practice English Speaking&Listening with: This Low Budget Movie Is a Disaster

Difficulty: 0

Welcome back to another episode of


since I've been making videos on Low-budget movies over the past couple of months

I've been getting this movie suggested to me a lot

it's called "Standing Ovation" it came out in 2010

It looks like sort of a High School Musically type movie

or like a Disney channel type movie

and I don't know if it was that popular among kids when it came out

so maybe some of you have seen it I don't know

But I got this movie recommended to me a lot

so I wanted to watch it and I did

*a pause that will cause someone social anxiety to double* 😏

and it's really bad

it's just this really weird movie totally based on these dance competitions

wear these kids sing and dance

but all the music is really bad

just lots of really weird plot details

wear things that they mention at the beginning of the movie

that you would think are going to come back

and they never do

and over all it just seems like a very lazily put together movie

I just get the vibe that the film makers didn't really care

when making this movie

they just thought ahh kids while watch it even if it sucks

and we will make money

and that is good

so this movie starts off with a little dance competition

or it's like a singing competition

or like a singing and dance competition

I'm not really sure what event it is

that these girls compete in

it's like a singing and dancing competition

wear they choreograph and write their own songs

uh, and then perform them

so it opens with these kids singing and dancing

and jumping all over the stage and it looks like the main characters are running a little late

because that's what under dogs do

at the beginning of movie

they show up late to things

we see them all hop out of a taxi

there's Britney that's the main character

and then her grandpa who's the taxi driver (for some reason) he wishes them good luck

(grandpa says) good luck you girls wish you the best

(girl) "A" i got amazing

"B" we're the best

"C" I told you, I told you

I knew the alphabet

(Danny) I told you I knew the alphabet

you didn't believe me

you thought, you thought

I didn't even know the letters of the alphabet

but look at me know

I got all the way to "C"

the music in this movie is really bad

so in this opening this random group dancing

but we do get introduced to a villain

because when they are performing we see this creepy man

back stage press some buttons on this circuit breaker.

(weird zap sounds)

and for some reason instead of turning off the lights

it just sort of makes them flicker and buzz

I'm not sure why flipping switches

on a circuit breaker would just make the lights flicker

and buzz like that

but never the less it ruins their performance

"a", "o", I smell a villain

my little villain sniffer

is sniffing a guy that's up to no good

so before were really introduced to the main characters

we're actually introduced to the villains

so I thought that these girls

were going to be the main characters

since it was introduced to them first

these are the wiggies

there called that because there always wearing wigs

there the daughter of this guy

who the richest man in town

and he owns a wig factory

so that's why there wearing the wigs

you may remember this guy

from a few seconds ago when

he fucked with the lights

( zapping sounds)

are you girls ready to kill some..

(girl interrupts) butt


do you have to be so crude Jeff

I'm trying to teach them to be ladys

(Danny) Jeff she's trying to teach these girls to be ladys

Do not tell them about butts

ladys are not suppose to know about butts

(Jeff) ladys I'm not raising ladys I'm raising what;

(song in harmony exempt for Jeff) superstars

(Danny) A, A (laugh)

what the fuck

god I think they should have turned the microphones down for that part

(Jeff) singing but weirdly

this movie has lots of really plot points

and lots of weird characters and bad writing

but it's weird production qwerks like this, that really put the icing on the cake

for this movie

like was nobody monitoring the audio for this scene

nobody noticed the bar like hitting the top

of the audio levels

because this scene is suppose to be shown off how good the rival gang is at singing

but instead it just makes them all sound like Sh**

Usually when movies have kid actors

there like the weak point of the movie

but in this movie I actually feel like the kids did a really good job.

there very cute

likable characters and it's all of the things the adults were suppose to do

in this movie that made it really bad

loser (sung by the Wiggies in harmony)

(girl from other gang says) yeah well at least we can sing

(girl from rival gang) what did you just say

O, Sh** what she should have said was at least we don't clip the microphone every time we harmonies.

so this is the first little altercation between the main characters and

the rival gang.

The main characters are called the 5 ovations

and the rival gang are the Wiggies

and is it just me or is there like way to big

of an age difference between the 5 ovation

and the Wiggies

because it says latter on the movie

that the 5 ovation are 12 and the Wiggies

look like there like 20

like what kind of league is this that there in.

what kind of dance competition

is putting 20 year olds against littlerly middle schoolers

how could these girls even stand a chance

(girl from wiggies aka the rival gang) you heard me you better watch your mouth girl

(random person) sss,sss do you want to do this or not come on no cat fights come

(wiggies be like making these weird cat noises)

(Danny laughing) okay fine

no cat fights but were still going to hiss like little cats
