    What does "what's cracking" mean?

    Hello.

    I found the sentence "what's cracking?" on a movie.

    Is this used as a greeting like " What's up? or how things going?"


    Thank you for the time ^_^

    What would you answer to the question "What's cracking"?

    Re: What does "what's cracking" mean?

    The same thing you would answer to "What's up?"

    Normally something like "Not much, what's up with you?"

    Unless you had something really important to announce or were in some strange situation that required an explanation of "what's up?"

    Thank you so much!
