Quotes

Dave: [watching Sue dance with Tony] If she can experience, I can experience.
[He walks over to Jackie]
Dave: You always stand like that?
Jackie: Only when I feel my energy being drained. Standing on one leg doesn't allow the energy complete flow. You can lose it in the floor. Would you like to dance?
Dave: Well, uh...
Jackie: Yes! You would.
Dave: Yeah, O.K.

Enjoyable multi character film
12 August 2004 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

If you like multi character movies, this will not disapoint. The mainly unknown cast are all rather likeable folks. and Paul Jabara is very good in his only screen role. YOu will be touched by the scene of him and a lovley young girl who are locked in a stairway but end up boogooing anyway. I especially love the plot about the fat guy and the tall thin schoolteacher who are mismatched by a dating service. Except for a few drug scenes, this is a terrific family picture, too. And the best you will ever see Debra Winger on screen. She looks soft and pretty. The music is very good, strong voices and tunes, much better than the dance music of the last 20 years. Check out this movie for some good light entertainment.
