Awesome movie!
31 January 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Loved it- why had I not heard about this movie?! (my mate picked it up randomly in a sale!)

Big hair, leotards and leg warmers- dirty dancing meets fame, meets flash dance, meets many other cheesy 80s movies! I am now seeing SJP and Helen Hunt in a whole new light- they can dance! And Sarah Jessica Parker is HOT! Also, the soundtrack is brilliant...

Perfect for a night in with the girls with a bottle of wine!

If you haven't already BUY THIS MOVIE- you'll wanna see it more than once, and make sure all your friends see it too!

:-D
