A real feel-good movie
23 February 2003 | by DaysFan79See all my reviews

A real, feel-good movie. A movie that one may like to watch when they are feeling sad. But make no mistake, one may also like watching this because it's just a great movie all around. One of my personal favorites! This came out in the wake of 'Flashdance' which was very successful. However, I think this one is much better. I think we can all relate to this in some way as it is about following your dreams with a touch of romance added in. It's a cute yet low-budget Canadian film, but they make it work anyway. The ending is classic and this is one film that is truly unique in every sense of the word. The actors were good, the music is good, the story is good. I can't say how much I love this movie! This is one worth checking out. If you enjoy cheesy yet lovable movies like Girls Just Want To Have Fun or Teen Witch, this is one for you!
