Since I saw the trailer for this movie, I have wanted to go see it. I was too little to see the original movie, but I would occasionally get a peek at the TV series shows that spun out of that movie. I even owned the soundtrack. I loved that sound track, and can still sing most of the lyrics to the songs. I wanted to be a dancer. My body had other plans, but deep in my heart I am a dancer. Unfortunately, the movie did not meet up to my expectations. While all the characters were wonderful the audience just wasn't given a chance to fall in love with them. You will be surprised by Naturi Naughten performance, who plays the character Denise, a young woman who is a trained classical pianist who is held back by her parents. I do hope to see more of her because she has the most amazing voice. The movie was too dis-jointed which took away the energy or the ability to get emotionaly attached. The soundtrack was updated to the sound of today, and was equally wonderful. Sadly, I wished I had waited for this to come on DVD. Safe your money.
