Movie review: 'Leap!' trips over its sloppy story

The animated feature "Leap!" pirouettes onto screens this weekend, hoping to snag the attention of young audiences during the dog days of summer. This Canadian production, originally titled, "Ballerina," finally hits U.S. theaters equipped with a Carly Rae Jepsen summer jam, "Cut to the Feeling." But you'll spend an hour and 27 minutes waiting for the film to cut to that tune because the ramshackle storytelling leaves much to be desired in this tale of a young girl finding passion and purpose through dance.
