Is it wrong of me to love this movie?


I'm 26 years old, never was into the tu-tus and ballet slippers, more likely to play dodgeball than try a pas de deux, but... this movie is simply captivating.

The story is familiar: Jodie is a beautiful dancer, but can't quite keep up with the talent at her prestigious dance school. Her best friend is a rebel. The best dancer is a nasty snob. Jodie falls for the wrong guy, and then the right one, and everything works out in the end.

But... the dance sequences are beautiful (probably because most of the characters are played by dancers, rather than actors). The dialogue -- which, the first time I watched this movie, I thought was clunky, is actually honest (again, maybe because nobody is "acting" so much as living the story). I love the moment after Jodie runs out of rehearsal and is crying in the hallway. Charlie runs after her and convinces her to come back in, but she blurts out: "I can't, I'm all splotchy."

So... in conclusion, and I might be a little bit embarrassed to say this... this is one of my favorite movies.

very funny movie!


The things I like about this movie, are the way the main couple keep their cool at all times. In addition, they are always in control of the situations that come up. I love the parts where Mommy is showing baby daughter, her Dad foiling bank robbers!All in all, good clean fun.

I loved it!


I loved it! Thought the characters and the dialogue were fantastic...very clever... Wonder why Hollywood continues to feed us junk these days instead of creative writing like this! Would definitely recommend...especially to anyone who has lived in a big city before!

IF YOU WATCHED GUMBY IN THE 80s+ YOUL LOVE IT


All these other reviews down this dvd so much, i grew up with gumby in the late 80s early 90s and i cant notice a difference in music or voice quality, which is what everyones complaining about, i do notice in the early episodes, there voices are different, but thats obviosly how they started out. This dvd is true to the era of gumby in the 80s. This is the best box set i have ever owned, and will be treasured for ever. I reccommend not thinking twice about buying it, think once and think yes. This is a classic to show the kids, and they will love it as much as you did. This is a great buy, and i give it 5 stars.

The only gay movie from East Germany!


This is a wonderfull movie. The action is in Berlin in 1989, just before the wall fall. The plot is a love story between Mathias ( a 19 year old who has attempt suicide in the begining of the film), and Philipp, a young school teacher who is in denial of his gayness.
It is very interesting to see the gay lifestyle (and lifestyle in general) of East Berlin in 1989. The country is still a communist state at that time. There are profunds dialogs.
I really enjoyed this movie and I believe that it is one of the best gay movie ever made.
An absolute must seeing for all gay men!

OUTSTANDING!


I was delighted with this upbeat look at life for an English boy coming to terms with his sexuality and libido. There are some true comic moments and almost all the performances are refreshing and energetic.
Fans of "Beautiful Thing" may like this film. However, I felt the sexual tension between the young geek and the school jock were a bit too campy and their relationship lacked a certain chemistry.

familiar themes with a new perspective


The subject matter is universal, as much as we may hate to admit it: spousal abuse, rape, gang activity, unempolyment, alcoholism, and so on. We can all relate. I know many women who struggle like Beth to have a decent home for their children despite near poverty. I know many men like Jake whose own worth as a man is questioned by losing a job, and who turn to violence to feel a semblance of control. I know many children who fall prey to the dangers of living in such a volatile environment. And I know many families for whom it takes a profound tragedy to illicit positive change.
We could all learn a lesson from this movie. The most important things in life are not the things we can buy, but the ways in which we treat one another. And we should always embrace our culture. In the ways of our forefathers, we find the strength to perservere through our own lives. Times change, but strength is always there.

what we are missing


This dvd may be simple, but for $16.99 you can't beat it. All these videos are great, although sometimes corny. I can't believe what people in the U.S. are missing... blur is more than that "woo-hoo" band. My only complaint is that it is missing the 'Music is my Radar" video, and the menus are somewhat confusing.

Not for the Novice Anime watcher!


Oh my god, this is the funniest anime that I have ever seen! I laughed so hard that my stomach hurt, and I almost wet myself. It's about an absent-minded 8th grade girl who happens to have inherited the awesome powers of the greatest swordsman in the land, but she doesn't even know it. I admit, it does sound kind of cheesy, but the overall humor makes up for any flaws that the series might have. Ah, I laughed, I cried (from laughing too hard), this is definately the greatest anime that I have ever seen.

Atta boy, Luther!!


This is one funny comedy!! I was freaked out by the haunted house some, since I was watching at night by myself. The organ at night was scary too, but the title music is actually kind of funny.
The star is Luther Heggs(Don Knotts) Who is a type-setter who wants to be a reporter, so he stays at this house on the 20th anaversary of the murder/suiside of Mr. and Mrs. Simmons. He soon writes a report on it and got a court summon soon after by the owner of the house, Nick Simmons, the Simmons' nephew. Well, I won't spoil the ending but I gotta say that "Atta boy Luther" was a great running gag suggested by Andy Griffith!!
