  1. Pleasantly modest, endearingly etched and briskly set to a pounding beat.
  2. What's infectious about Groove is the friendly, almost innocent way that its brat pack of digital-age bohemians seek liberation in a world where there is nothing left to rebel against.
  3. 70
    As a musical feast, Groove works well. As a celebration of tribal ritual, it's even better.
  4. 60
    What gives the movie its coltish charm is Harrison's scene-setting feel for the indomitable brio of kids.
  5. 50
    I liked the music. I would rather have the movie's soundtrack than see Groove again--or at all.
  6. 48
    Its characters and plot are almost wholly negligible. It's just a party.
  7. 25
    But there's nothing in this amateurish movie that the opening credits of last year's "Go" didn't do better.
