Shall We Dance?




I have been thinking about movies that put me in the mood for Valentine's Day and this one is definitely at the top of the list. I loved it! Maybe it is because I am an old married person(fifteen years this April!) and so are the characters in the movie. Richard Gere's character has a great life, good job, nice wife but something is missing. He starts taking dancing lessons not necessarily to "be" with the beautiful instructor but he is somewhat hypnotised by her. It is a funny movie with great music and good and bad dancing (this is a perfect role for Jo Lo, her dancing is great). The writing is good and I guess I liked it because it is about choices, hopefully making good ones. It left me with an all around good feeling, and wanting to go home and kiss my hubby. Guess that is why I actually bought this one, something I rarely do unless it is a kid video!

The sound track is also really fun.

My kids LOVE dancing to the soundtrack and were really dancing their little hearts out Sunday before church(that would be the explanation for Brittany's pj's and curlers!). So see, it is even good for a little cardio-exercise in the winter!

I loved that movie too, it was wonderful that it didn't turn ugly, and stayed sweet and innocent.
