Makes your heart dance!

In my opinion the best movie by far for 2007! Although not quite as campy as the original the music and clever lyrics make this a more preferable choice for me. For some reason my friends and I just fell in love with this movie (and we are all over 40). It was just righteous, happy fun with lots of good dancin'. It was such a nice change to see over the other HEAVY, DARK movies of 2007. There is some adult humor so I'm not sure if it would be good for kids but I think the humor is subtle enough that children and early teens wouldn't understand. I bought the 2 DVD set just to see the behind the scenes work and tend to watch it almost as much as the movie itself.
