Indiana girl Lauryn wants to be a dancer, so she tries to audition for a Chicago dance school but fails to impress them; they tell her to return for the second audition a few weeks off and try to do something different. But in the meantime, her car gets towed; not wanting to return to Indiana and a brother who doesn't exactly support her, she gets a job at a burlesque club and discovers a different kind of dance.Written by
Mary Elizabeth Winstead was shocked and flattered to be offered the role out of the blue and eagerly accepted, as dancing was one of her passions. She's been dancing since she was 4 years old. See more »
When Lauryn dances onstage at Ruby's for the first time, as she goes into her starting post, she realizes that she is too far to the left (viewer's left, her right) of the stage and adjusts herself so her silhouette (outline) is right in the middle of the sliding stage door (at the line where the doors meet). But the very next shot shows her silhouette to the right (viewer's right) of the middle/door split. See more »

This film is about a young woman who works against all odds towards achieving her dream as a dancer.
"Make It Happen" is a predictable feel good movie. It has got all the ingredients to be a cheesy film. It has trendy danceable music, cool dance moves, great looking people, the jealous enemy; even the obligatory shopping scenes! As for the plot, there is no beating around the bush. Just six minutes into the film, there is already a dance audition. The pacing is fast, but it does not feel rushed. The dance moves are energetic and vibrant, which makes it a joy to watch.
"Make It Happen" gives the right youthful energy which makes viewers feel good. It is a great popcorn flick to turn your brain off. Just forget all the clichés, sit back and enjoy it.
