Strictly Romance



One of the greatest, quirkiest, most romantic films ever....Strictly Ballroom.

Sigh. Swoon. Sigh. Swoon.

This film has got it all...hilarious humor, true romance, great music. It's in my Top 5 List (w/ Moonstruck, Aliens 2, Willy Wonka-the original, and Jaws).

This scene is one of the greatest final movie scenes ever. LOVE IT! Enjoy.



Hope you have a romantic Saturday. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for The Martini Club...Judith Arnold will be here talking strawberry daiquiris and funny bar scenes.

I Loooooove this movie. I will literally stop what I'm doing and start watching it anytime I find it.

Me, too! It is as close to perfection as possible for me....the romance, the kookiness, the music. And it's timeless, even though this film is from the 1980s. Still great!

This is my favorite, too. It always brings a smile to my face. Maybe I'll get out the DVD tonight. Thanks for the reminder!

Hi Donna! Get it! You cannot watch this one too many times. It's perfection.

There is nothing as gorgeous as great ballroom dancing.

Julia....I love how some of the dances in this movie are kooky, some are slow and romantic, some are funny. It has everything.
