Worth it for the dance numbers.
18 June 2000 | by (Lansing, Michigan) – See all my reviews

All in all, a less than impressive movie. Standard characters without any unique qualities and a story line that's been used in too many movies are what stand out in this bland romantic comedy. What saves the movie though are the dance numbers. Especially the famous Ann Miller scene where she's dancing amongst the musical instruments protruding from beneath the stage.
