The umbrella dance was originally planned with water dropping down like rain, with the girls dancing in water, splashing it around with their dance moves. However, the idea was scraped due to the fact that it would be too easy for the girls to fall while shooting the scene. See more »
In the scene were Lauren dances onstage at Ruby's for the first time, as she goes into her starting pose, she realizes that she is too fair to the left (viewer's left, her right) of the stage and adjusts herself so her silhouette (outline) is right in the middle of the sliding stage door (at the line where the doors meet). However, in the very next shot her silhouette is now to the right (viewer's right) of the middle/door split. See more »

Excellent, intelligent and enjoyable film that is well worth seeing.
I saw Make it Happen this morning and thoroughly enjoyed the film. I found the plot to be intelligent, original, interesting and emotionally engaging. I thought all of the characters in some way evoked my sympathy and the standard of acting was excellent. I enjoyed the romance and felt there was real 'chemistry' in those scenes. There wasn't as much dancing and music as I expected, but for me that didn't matter since I was more interested in the story. (Having said that, I enjoyed what dancing and music there was very much!) I don't see why anyone of a romantic nature (male or female) wouldn't thoroughly enjoy this film. It has everything I look for in a movie - and plenty of it. Highly recommended.
