With a plethora of flashy cameos by artists Missy Elliot, Tweet, Ginuwine, Jadakiss, and Sheek, Honey feels like an extended hip-hop video with an inspiring, socially conscious message about ambition and the bittersweet taste of success. New York City dancer-choreographer Honey Daniels (Jessica Alba, of TV's Dark AngelL) hopes her talent will soon be recognized, but for now she's working three odd jobs: in a record store, as dance teacher at the local youth centre, and bartender in a Manhattan dance club. Hot director of music videos Michael Ellis (David Moscow, Just Married, Big) spots an amateur video of Honey cutting a rug after work, and gives her a shot at the big time when he asks her to choreograph videos for Ginuwine and Tweet. Just as the big bucks start rolling in, Honey gets a nasty dose of reality when she rebuffs the director's sexual advances and is blackballed by the industry. Honey throws herself back into her community work with a vengeance and helps two of her most talented students Benny (Lil' Romeo) and Raymond (Zachary Isaiah Williams) stay out of the hands of local drug dealers. Honey is a 21st-century version of Flashdance or Fame--an infinitely entertaining urban dance movie that gets viewers' feet tapping with high-energy choreography and strings of catchy, cutting-edge tunes.
After a brush with the law, Maria Bennett (Katerina Graham) has returned to her gritty Bronx roots to rebuild her life with nothing but a talent for street dance and a burning ambition to prove herself. She finds refuge in the place that made her feel most alive as kid—the dance hall where Honey’s exuberant classes first ignited her passion for dance. Keeping on the straight and narrow means living with Honey’s mom Connie and holding down a job just to make ends meet. But a rare night out at a local dance club gives her an opportunity to let loose with a joy and energy she had almost forgotten. Seeing a chance at creating a new and meaningful life, Maria pours her heart and soul into dance and begins training the HDs to compete on a television dance competition.
