This past weekend I wasn't feeling well and apart from a day of bad horror movies on Lifetime I spent some time watching movies. Then since today is my day off and I'm all alone (good time to see movies that no one else in the family wants to watch) I decided to watch one that was recommended to me through Netflix the other day. It was a movie from 2005 called Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School, rated PG-13 (for "mature situations and language".) This is the product description for this movie on Amazon:
"FRANK KEANE IS A BAKER BY TRADE BUT NOW A MAN CONSUMED BY HIS WIFE'S DEATH. WHEN FATE INTERVENES, HE PULLS OVER TO HELP A STRANGER IN A CAR WRECK, A MAN NEAR DEATH WHO URGENTLY DISCLOSES A PLANNED REUNION, A MEETING WITH A LOST CHILDHOOD LOVE AT A SCHOOL FOR BALLROOM DANCE."
It may not sound interesting but it was a cute movie and one that I was glad I took the time to watch. I was surprised at all of the stars that kept popping up in the movie, right down to the very last 5 minutes--John Goodman, Marisa Tomei, Sean Astin, Robert Carlyle (Full Monty!), Camryn Manheim, Donnie Wahlberg, Mary Steenburgen, Miguel Sandoval (Medium), Danny Devito, Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), David Paymer, Adam Arkin (Chicago Hope, Sons of Anarchy)...you get the idea. It was only 1 hour & 45 minutes long so even if you don't like it you won't have wasted much time. It's listed as a drama, but there is humor in there too. Let me know what you think if you watch it!
