An Entertaining Diversion for Fans of Musical Theater
3 August 2006 | by Isaac5855See all my reviews

LEGS was a relatively entertaining TV movie that revolved around the auditioning process for the legendary Rockettes, the world's most famous chorus line, focusing on three women auditioning for the famous chorus line for the first time. Deborah Geffner, Maureen Teefy, and Shanna Reed head the cast as the three hopefuls who seemed to have pinned their entire lives on getting into the Rockettes. Geffner, who was so memorable a few years prior in ALL THAT JAZZ, as Vicky, the dancer Joe Gideon only cast because he wanted to have sex with her and Reed are well-cast in this movie and are wonderful dancers. Teefy, a very talented actress but not really a dancer, just seems a little out of her element here. The film also benefits from appearances by former 20th Century Fox dancer Sheree North as a former Rockette and Broadway legend Gwen Verdon as the Rockettes choreographer. For those fascinated with anything dealing with musical theater and/or the dance, a must...others be forewarned.
