Quotes

Perry Parker: You know I... I talk to my teens about love, and I always say "This crazy thing called love, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry...but hey, man, it's what makes the world go 'round." Now, dying for love? Whoa! That's too momentous! I mean it's good for the books, but not for teens. Now, on the other hand, there's nothing wrong with a teen king or a teen queen FEELING like you could die for love. That way, you'd cherish every dance and you'd never waste a kiss.

One of My Favorite Movies
29 December 2003 | by jomp525See all my reviews

I honestly cannot remember where or when I first saw this movie, but it has always been one of my absolute favorites! I love the music, I love the story and I was madly in love with Popeye! I wanted to be one of those kids on the dance show! This movie made me laugh, cry and dance! I highly recommend it! I was so excited when I found the tape on the "previously viewed" sale rack at a video store so that I could watch it whenever I wanted! :)
