      Jake Nevins Guardian Step Sisters tries to straddle a similar line, and it has a lot to say about race, sorority life, and sisterhood, but its characters are not so much real people as mere vessels for different viewpoints. Rated: 3/5 Jan 19, 2018 Full Review Kimber Myers Los Angeles Times Hits its beats enough to make fans of the genre tap their feet along with the action on screen. Jan 18, 2018 Full Review Derek Deskins Edge Media Network Calling the jokes lazy feels like I'm giving them too much credit. Rated: 1.5/5 Mar 1, 2019 Full Review Eddie Strait The Daily Dot Step Sisters is especially disappointing coming from director Charles Stone III, who gave the world the joy of Drumline. No one would care about Step Sister's generic script if the dance scenes popped. Feb 7, 2018 Full Review Sesali Bowen Refinery29 There are other stories to tell about being Black on a PWI campus that don't involve racial injustice and trauma... Jamilah brought that narrative to life in Step Sisters, and honestly, that's good enough for me. Jan 24, 2018 Full Review Lea Palmieri Decider ...while the stigma of skin color starts to fade in time for the film to make its statement on different worlds (from race to gender to class) relating and bonding over what they have in common, it's just a bit too late.

      corkball Bad. I just plain don't care for musicals, but even by that standard this is embarrassing. Cookie cutter characters from better films, clunky racial justice dialogue inserted at random, and worst of all, the big dance number, while not horrible, didn't even live up to 'So You Think You Can Dance' levels. On the up side, the lead female character was likeable and empathetic enough. Take out the stepping and you are left with something like 'Revenge of the Nerds' Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review miriam s If you'd like a fun light-hearted movie this is the one. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed the movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I think the movie's consept is great! But the Caucasian Sorority is a little stiff. That expected of course. But it was a little cheesy. But overall a good movie, check it out Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Certainly had it's share of funny one-liners and the actors are giving their best effort. Still ends up being a fairly paint-by-numbers, "be true to yourself" story. I wouldn't call it bad by any means, but one would be forgiven if they found this movie forgettable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a snooze fest 😴... Horrible acting and embarrassing story plot... No originality...
