Trivia

"Dedicated to Our Friend and Collaborator, Gene Kelly", who acted as a choreography consultant (uncredited) for the film shortly before he passed away in 1996. Kelly's cement hand and footprints at the Grauman's Chinese Theater forecourt are clearly seen in the opening musical number in Hollywood as a tribute (even though he didn't place his there until 1969).

its my favorite animated movie
26 March 2006 | by alimacuSee all my reviews

this movie is great-- i watched it when i was small, and i've loved it ever since! my favorite characters are Danny and sawyer... i just thought Danny was so cute and the sparks between Danny and sawyer were adorable!!! well, i guess my real favorite character would have to be sawyer, she's a great dancer and has some really good songs. my ultimate favorite scene was in the last number "nothing's going to stop us now" when they were in the "venice" scene...i thought it was the cutest, even if it was only a few seconds long! but it definitely was a cute movie, and my favorite of all time. this was a great movie. everyone, of all ages, should watch it.
