While the plot of this Australian film may seem a bit familiar (The Ugly Duckling meets Dirty Dancing), the whimsical tone and superb dance sequences will make you forget the movie's predictability. Scott (Paul Mercurio) is a champion ballroom dancer who wants to dance "his own steps." Fran is the homely, beginning dancer who convinces Scott that he should dance his own steps... with her. Complicating matters are Scott's domineering mother (Pat Thompson), a former dancer herself, who wants her son to win the Australian Pan Pacific Championship (the same contest she lost years ago), and a conniving dance committee that is determined that "there are no new steps!" The dancing is enjoyable, yet not overwhelming, and the movie strives hard not to take itself too seriously (the beginning of the film is even styled as a pseudo-documentary). Strictly Ballroom, while not so subtly imparting its moral ("A life lived in fear is a life half-lived"), is a laughable romp that's sure to be a crowd pleaser. --Jenny Brown
Saw the movie years ago. Looked everywhere for it. Loved it. Happy I was able to find it.

This was a film that I had never heard of until a foreign friend hosted a showing. It is not new but the story never gets old when it is unrequited love. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Victoria M. Lamkey
I love this movie. It is quirky and fun. Even if you aren't a ballroom dance fan, you'll like this movie. It's not really about ballroom, perse. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Theater Geek
