Strictly brilliantBy Waterboy (34 reviews) from Hertfordshire , 26 Mar 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]A brilliant parody of the world of 'comepetition' dancing . From the opening minutes humour is woven with a romance that out dances and provides more real passion than Dirty Dancing ever could. Funny, stylish and entertaining, even the predictable ending inspires, when it could have disappointed. My number one feel good film, whether you are Scott or Fran, watch this with a broad smile and laugh out loud as your eyes fill with tears of joy, and then see Muriel's Wedding.

Has its tongue firmly in its surreal cheekBy Bassman71 (617 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 19 Sep 2011Male maverick dancer, wants to win Dance Championship, partner dumps him for another dancer, pairs up with frumpy girl, guess what happens.
Predictable but extremely entertaining Australian film which has its tongue firmly in its surreal cheek.
You know within the first ten minutes how its all going to pan out but its done so well with plenty of laughs along the way that youre drawn in by it.
Cast are excellent and almost cartoon like at times with my favourite being Barry Otto as Scotts slightly damaged Father.
The dancing is great too with a mixture of ballroom and latin and the scene with Frans Spanish parents one of the many highlights.
Very funnyBy DanceOK (3 reviews) , 12 May 2011A fantastic Baz Luhrmann film. It is very funny and a wonderfully romantic story. The music is quite good too. A must see if you are a fan of more recent Baz Luhrmann films.
Strictly BallroomBy a customer from Nottingham , 14 Oct 2010I've always like this movie and did so again this time around. Can't remember how many times I've seen it but I always find something in it that I hadn't noticed before. Fun movie.
One of my favourite films!By lawney from derby, uk , 10 May 2010I've seen this film so many times and I always enjoy it - one of Baz Luhrman's best.
Strictly BallroomBy lightpainter (2 reviews) from Bradford , 08 Aug 2009A fantastic film. Don't be put off by it's title. I saw this in the cinema when it was released; it's the only film I've been to where the audience applauded at the end. Definitely worth watching. Doug...... my favorite character!
