Why do girls like movies about dancing?

That's a very good question. I would answer it, but I'm too busy watching a movie about dancing.

My favorite is Strictly Ballroom...Baz Luhrmann's first feature film, even before Romeo + Juliet. The Australian accents are so thick you can barely understand them, but who cares? It's about the dancing, people.

Here's an extremely cheesy Cyndi Lauper video/dancing montage from the film:

Is it better than footloose?

LOVE dancing movies. and cheering movies. even if the plot is mostly crappy... just show me a bunch of dance numbers and I will be satisfied.
Also, David and I have been taking ballroom lessons!! It is so much fun. We've learned a lot so far... rhumba, tango, foxtrot, waltz, swing, and salsa.

And and D are dancin'!?! That's so very cool. Can't wait to see your sweet moves.
