Despite all the bad reviews...

I liked this movie! I've watched it many times, and honestly, I'm in love with it. Yes, the story line is kind of unrealistic in some ways - but I thought it was interesting to see how everything unfurled - especially if you paid attention to the parts of the story that weren't directly mentioned in the movie. I liked all the dance moves, of course, too and I liked how she was a quiet private school girl who eventually made her way to the top, earning the prize and some friends. Yes, yes it's predictive to see that they won at the end - but what if they hadn't? You would have been amped up on the edge of your seat, only for them to drop the loser ball and have you feeling like crap afterwards. Then you would have been wondering what would happen to her afterwards, given that she didn't win the money to go to med school, etc. Then they would have had to make a sequel.
Overall, I love this movie - and after about 5 years, I definitely ordered the DVD.
