One of My Favorite Movies
29 December 2003 | by jomp525See all my reviews

I honestly cannot remember where or when I first saw this movie, but it has always been one of my absolute favorites! I love the music, I love the story and I was madly in love with Popeye! I wanted to be one of those kids on the dance show! This movie made me laugh, cry and dance! I highly recommend it! I was so excited when I found the tape on the "previously viewed" sale rack at a video store so that I could watch it whenever I wanted! :)
