Steve's Church-less Movie Of The Week ...

Get ready for some wack 1980s breakdancing, bad dudes!

Enjoy ...

Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia monster ...

"Breakin', released as Breakdance: The Movie or Break Street '84 in some countries, is a 1984 breakdancing-themed film directed by Joel Silberg. The film setting was inspired by a 1983 German documentary entitled Breakin' and Enterin' set in the Los Angeles multi-racial hip hop club Radiotron, based out of Macarthur Park in Los Angeles.

Many of the artists and dancers, including Ice-T (who makes his movie debut as a club MC) and Boogaloo Shrimp, went straight from Breakin' and Enterin' to star in Breakin'. Ice-T has stated he considers the film and his own performance in it to be 'wack'. Jean-Claude Van Damme is a backup dancer in the film.

The music score featured the hits 'Breakin'... There's No Stopping Us' by Ollie & Jerry and 'Freakshow on the Dance Floor'. Breakin' was followed by a sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo which was released the same year as its predecessor.

Breakin' was the final Cannon film production released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. After Breakin' was released, MGM and Cannon Films dissolved their distribution deal, reportedly over the potentially X-Rated content in John Derek's film Bolero and MGM's then-current rule of not releasing X-Rated material theatrically, forcing Cannon to become an in-house distribution company once again. Because of the demise of the distribution deal, Breakin' is considered to be the final financially profitable film released by Cannon Films."
