What can you say about a massively popular, celebrated band like TLC that hasn’t already been said? VH1 is attempting to answer that question by gifting the world with a made-for-TV biopic to add to their impressive roster of TLC-themed entertainment, which at this point includes the band’s episode of Behind the Music and the documentary The Last Days of Left Eye. CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story follows Left Eye (Lil Mama), T-Boz (Drew Sidora), and Chili (Keke Palmer) as they navigate their rise to fame and success in the music industry. I can only assume they’re going to milk Lil Mama’s amazing Left Eye impression for everything it’s worth and address her tragic death near the end of the movie as well. The film looks like a campy good time, if not a bit cheesy. Hey, this is VH1 we’re talking about. These are the good people who bring you T.I. and Tiny and a viewing of Showgirls twice an afternoon. So look forward to many a recreated music video, put on your silk pajamas and enjoy the ride. Check out the trailer after the break.

Magic Mike may be loosely based on Channing Tatum’s past as a male stripper (and Tatum proves it with his impressive dancing skills), but Tatum first burst onto the film scene in 2006 as a troubled kid from the wrong side of the tracks with some serious moves (even when he is keeping his clothes on) in Step Up. While Tatum has taken on drama (A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints), comedy (21 Jump Street), and being a romantic lead (The Vow), one thing has always been true – the guy can dance. Step Up seemed like your typical dance movie based on two dancers, the classically trained Nora (played by Tatum’s now wife, Jenna Dewan) and break dancing Tyler (Tatum), but the dance chops  and chemistry of these two leads made ended up making the film a surprise hit at the box office. Directed by Anne Fletcher (who is also an accomplished choreographer) Step Up’s story not only resonated, but the dancing on screen was fresh and exciting.
