Make Your Move (formerly called Cobu 3D, also known as Make Your Move 3D), is a Romeo and Juliet-inspired 2013 South Korean-American independent dance film starring K-pop singer BoA and ballroom dancer Derek Hough. The film was directed by Duane Adler who wrote the script for the movies Save the Last Dance (2001) and Step Up (2006). Hough took season twelve off of the show Dancing With the Stars to star in the film, which was shot in New York City and Toronto during the spring of 2011. Aside from the lead stars, singer Yunho from TVXQ has a cameo appearance. The film was choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo, Yako Miyamoto, and Nick Gonzalez.

    Sara Stewart of the New York Post gave the film one out of four stars, saying "The dancing’s fine here, but there’s little else to distinguish Make Your Move, an entirely generic drama in which two characters actually say to one another, 'What if this doesn’t work?' 'It has to.' It doesn’t."

    Inkoo Kang of the Los Angeles Times said "[Make Your Move]'s core dance styles are a wonderfully frenetic fusion of tap and hip-hop and a truly novel blend of Japanese taiko drumming and K-pop girl-group choreography. Whenever actor Derek Hough and BoA stop leaping and twirling, though, Make Your Move is an underwritten mess."

    Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter said "Undemanding young audiences will hardly mind the one-note characterizations, formulaic storyline and banal dialogue even as they’ll relate to the frequent nods to text messaging and YouTube videos gone viral... Hough’s dancing is far more impressive than his acting, and BoA, despite her perky sexiness, is an even less compelling screen presence. But they certainly move well together, and that’s pretty much all that matters here..."

    Stephanie Merry of The Washington Post said "Although the bit of bedroom footwork was more laugh-inducing than anything, some of the dancing really is spectacular. Scenes from the competing clubs include impressive choreography and gravity-defying moves. If only the poorly delivered, trite dialogue and predictable plot aimed as high."
