I loved this it was great

This movie was very good. I loved it. I am 13 and it does deal with a lot of problems many teens face in the world. But the ballroom teacher helps them to see how to deal with their problems and to lead a better life. I would defently say that this was a great movie and a movie that you should see. It was great.

The best movie ever!

This is the best movie ever! In this movie, a real-life story teacher teaches ballroom dancing. Problem is, the kids are rebellious and it is hard to get them to learn. Swearing is frequent, but that is the only problem. Recommended to everyone.

Great movie funny, and overall great.

This is a great movie and inspite of some sensual dancing, the content wasn't that bad either:) Its heart warming, it'll make you smile, might even get a few laughs out of you. I highly advise that you watch this movie, and that inspite of an underdeveloped plot, the end saves it anyway.

Great Moves & Great Message

Loved It! What fun...we laughed, clapped, and groved throughout. My 14-year-old daughter, her 15-year-old friend, and I LOVED IT! Language was a problem for me with 3 GD's by one student.

Anger leading to redemption

It was only half way through the movie that I remembered that these kids were actors - not real "rejects" in a hell of a NYC school. Despite their burned-out principal and hostility from other teachers, Antonio Banderas succeeds in turning these kids' lives around. Completely unsentimental and gritty - and amazing, amazing acting. To think that so many kids have lives like this with no hope offered. MUST SEE.

LOVED IT ! ! ! !

This was a very good movie I'm not being generous by giving its 5 star rating. But what brought the movie down was all the violance.
