First of all, I would like to ask those of you who voted for this picture, why you voted so poorly. This is not a bad movie.
I saw this movie recently and found myself liking into the first 30 minutes. Energetic music and exhausting aerobic dance scenes were quite enjoyable.
Although it is a typically daggy 80's film, it stills captures your interest from beginning to end. While most of the actors are basically average (not-famous otherwise), there were standout performances by both Lee Curtis and Travolta.
To add to the credibility of this film, the storyline is very engaging and does not lose its flow. Energetic, fun, absorbing. It has been under-estimated by many viewers, but at least there is one person out here that enjoyed it.
**** out of *****
