It made me feel ok
11 June 2003 | by (berlin) – See all my reviews

I liked this really well done. It made me feel like I danced it (how many can you say do that!!) What was best was the dancing and also when she (Ninny) did those backflips. You know what I mean. Even though its primarily a film about dancing it makes you feel totally victorious. Its a shame the sequel made in 1986 was never released.
