    In truth, Musical Chairs is so simplistic it almost feels like a first film. show more

    Lightweight but likeably uncynical. show more

    Musical Chairs is about overcoming impossible odds and never giving up and chasing your dreams – all that afterschool-special stuff - but it's also charming and upbeat, and it's stuffed with great, vibrant, insanely catchy music. No Bee Gees, though. show more

    Outstanding and heart-rending story of an unlikely pair who work through the challenges of aspiring ballroom dancers......from a wheelchair. Terrific directing from Susan Seidelman......excellent acting....and fascinating characters. A movie that inspires commitment and love.
