Review by anonymous (posted on 27-Dec-2006)

I completely adored this movie, The movie is real, and about real things that people go through not to mention all of the eye candy. I think that they are both extremely well dancers and would be delighted to watch it over and over again. I think that this is just the start of a much longer career for the both of them and really would love for a sequel. This movie just spoke to my heart, it is a movie that you can sit and watch with the whole family and still enjoy very much what you are watching and that is hard to find these days. In my opinion the mix of the dance styles made a beautiful movie and I already own it and watch it quite regularly.
