White Men Cant Dance

White Men Cant Dance

Synopsis

This film White Men Cant
Dance is a family oriented story based on hope, inspiration, dancing,
morals, dignity and ultimately God is brought into this film. A large
part of this film is based on a true story. This film White Men Cant
Dance is about a very close family that go through some very tough and
emotional struggles. The story takes place in a little home with the
husband, wife and precious little girl, which the father Pete works at
a development company. His office is very comical, but yet, they all
work together as a family. Pete is very close with his parents, but
only has a mental relationship with his father. His dad is an inventor,
a genius that everyone calls, Einstein 2. One day at the office Pete
gets a call from the hospital, his dad is on the way to the hospital
and his mother will meet him there. Immediately, Pete leaves the office
right in the middle of a very significant investor meeting, which is
crucial to the companys existence., But Pete needs to be at his dads
side, torn, he leaves the meeting regardless of the reluctance of his
boss. At the hospital his father dies in Petes arms waiting for a
surgeon that never comes. (based on a true story)
This devastates Pete and his family.
Almost in a zombie state, the next day Pete goes to work at his job,
trying to keep his mind busy and food on the table
After his dads funeral Pete finds out that his precious little girl is
dieing. She has to go on a waiting list, do to the lack of kidneys, not
to mention the expense. After insurance, what little they have, Pete
has to come up with $50,000 more to pay the hospital. They dont know
what to do, after his dads death they were strapped, his dad had no
life insurance of any kind. After a few days Pete is back to work, the
guys in the office try to talk Pete into going out to a club just to
change the scenery, make him forget for a few hours, with his wifes
blessings, they take him out.
They get to this club Rox and there we see this black guy dancing, Ice
Man he is an incredible break dancer. The guys are freaking out over
his abilities, but Pete wasnt impressed. Pete got up to go to the mens
room and does a little move, Ice Man came up to Pete and said that he
remembered him. He said he remembered how good he used to be, but now
he is too old and fat, a pushing match started. During this shoving
match Pete sees a banister saying, Dance Competition $40,000 first
place. He tells Ice Man that he will see him at the competition. The
guys break up the shoving match and are wondering what that was all
about. After being escorted out by the bouncers, they take Pete home,
wondering if they did the right thing taking him out. Pete thanks them,
and tells them that this was the best thing that could ever of
happened, it must have been Gods plan.
At home Pete finds some of his old dance tapes of him and his partners,
inspired, he calls his old dance buddies to ask them if they could help
him get in shape one last time for the competition of his life? Of
course to save his daughters life.
They agree and the intense working out starts, (like when Sylvestor
Stellone did in his movie when he went to Russia to work shop,
preparing for the fight of his life) so Pete is now struggling to get
back into shape. He would slip out at night to go work out with his
dance partners. His wife was starting to wonder if he was having an
affair. As a result, she gets her best friend involved as a scout for
her to find out what is going on. Next day Pete walks into work finding
out that he is fired. A fellow worker steals his invention saying pete
was stealing it from him. So Pete is fired.
Now, it is the night of the competition, Pete goes to his daughters
room and kisses her on the forehead after tucking her in, praying to
God, very emotional scene. He goes up stairs to the attic and opens an
old door where his old dance shoes are hanging, all dusty. He pulls
them out, brushes them off and goes out the door to the competition.
Meantime, his wife freaking out, calls her best friend and says ok
follow him now, on that pre-planned, non trust investigation. She
follows him to the competition. At the competition all these dancers
are stretching sizing up one another, trying to psyche each other out.
We see the judges, two of the four judges are Ice Mans dance buddies,
so we know which way this competition is going. The dance competition
starts, after 30 minutes it is down to two competitors, Ice Man and
Pete. They go back and forth, the crowd is slowly changing from their
Iceman and start screaming for Pete. Then, in nervous retaliation,
Icemans two dance partners come out on the dance floor and join in
dancing.
So, Petes dance partners, moon walk and slide out on the dance floor
with him to make things even. But one of Petes dancers gives the DJ his
own CD on the way out there. The DJ immediately puts it on.
They all are going at it, it is incredible, very physical and intense,
then the last move. Pete runs up Ice Mans back, doing a double flip
down to a split on the floor waving out his arms to a stop. The crowd
goes nuts. After a nervous and very quite five minutes, you could cut
the air with a knife. The judges announce the winner, it is Ice Man,
and there are a lot of boos and screaming.
A little pause and then, Iceman raises his arms and there is immediate
silence. He calls out to Pete, stopping him, he turns and looks at
Iceman. Iceman says, you won this competition old man, I cant win it
this way, you deserve it, the check and the trophy are yours.
Very emotionally but with a little smile, Pete says, I will take the
check, but I am passing the torch to you, you are a champion and a
gentleman.
They embrace, quietly in Petes ear, Iceman said, I heard about your
little girl, I hope she is ok, dont let anyone know I said anything,
that would be uncool. Pete smiles and turns, his little girl comes
limping across the floor and Pete picks her up in his arms lifting her
in the air, his buddies cheering in the background.
It is a very touching moment, then his wife looks at him with a look
of, I should of trusted you all along, but never saying a word, comes
over to congratulate him, she says I love you, lets go home.
Pete says no, I have to go strut one last time. We see Pete burst out
the side door and start strutting down the cobblestone street with
smoke emanating out of the man holes. His two dance partners come in
off camera from the sides to on camera. All three are now strutting and
smiling lifting there arms with one finger in the air.
Fading out and then to the room where Pete got his dancing shoes. In
stead of hanging his shoes back up, he goes to the window and throws
them out the window. In slow motion, they fall to the ground, bouncing
a few times. The credits are rolling with music, we see this little
black boy that we saw sneaking in the competition. He sees these shoes
and then he looks up with a big smile noticing that they are Petes
winning shoes, he picks up the shoes and puts them over his shoulder,
like they are gold, wearing the biggest smile ever. Meanwhile Pete is
giving him a thumbs up.
In the back ground we here, Gregory, Oh Gregory Hines Jr. get in this
house right now.
Coming mama.
