Best Dance Movie

I think a lot of you are young and dumb enough to think movies like Hairspray qualify as one of the best dance movies of all time.

You would be dead wrong (that’s ‘crowd booing/throwing stuff’ dead, by the way which is REAL dead in the dance movie world).

I want to know if there is a movie out there I’ve missed that upon completion of watching it makes you feel like starting a dance battle…or one so well done that you’ve seen it 500 times and practice the moves over and over.

For instance, anyone who calls themselves a man should know by now that You Got Served quite possibly single handedly changed pop culture world wide. The ‘Step Up’ trilogy doesn’t become such a popular movie franchise for the hell of it.

So, what movie slapped the shit out of you and made you pay attention?

PS, If you don’t mention the name “Channing Tatum”, a guy with blades for arms will be by shortly to remove what is left of your testicles.

Stomp the yard.

There was a movie, very old, called Fast Forward, I watched it when I was around 7, big influence at the time because break dancing and similar styles were really popular in my neighborhood.
