Fast Forward 1985 and now 2006
23 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

21 years ago this movie was released and people are still watching and talking about it!! That is a success to me.

I feel this movie is worth, not only watching but buying or renting as well. I own it on VHS and I always have it playing while I am doing housework just for the good music in the background. With dancing being so popular now, ballroom, hip hop, and and other kinds of dancing, I feel this movie would do really well sold on DVD. If they can digitally master others then they can this one.

I consider it a "feel good" movie because they reach their goal in life. At the end of this movie you will have a smile on your face and be tapping your foot to the music. With Sidney Poitier directing how can you go wrong?

"Fast Forward" sends you a good message. Never give up!
