But strangely, it's getting a good rating on IMDB, which I usually trust. Maybe we should reserve judgement til we've seen it.

Riiiiiight ... and people loved the stage version of Swing! too. That thing had some of the worst lindy hop I've ever seen ... ballet dancers doing swingouts with ballet styling. Hell, I've seen better swingouts in a beginner lindy class.

Isn't this interesting?

The producers also extend a huge thank you to the fabulous
San Francisco Bay Area swing dancers who participated
enthusiastically in the filming of this movie.
Without their passion and commitment
this movie would not have been possible.

MBK- Blues all the way. But, they were a good blues band

Indigo- Classic neo chesse IMO. Especially the first CD. The later CD's took a different angle on neo, but still the 'classic' neo


Casey McGill - Rhythm is a good (for neo) song. Not a lot of Cheese factor, and not a lot of the rompin blaring horn sound of most neo big bands. However, the rest of the stuff borders on the spy vs. spy stuff and whatnot. (this is all from memory, my CD is at home, so I am not listening to it atm) They do have another song that is popular to play, and that fits the classic definition of neo cheese.
Jellyroll=crap(I thought these guys sucked in 1998 when I liked neo crap)
MBK=crap, (I diasgree on your assesment of playing good blues. When Sam Burkhart was with them they were all right, but besides that they play crap)
Indigo=crap
Casey McGill=crap
Indigo swing=some good boogie woogie songs, a few other good tunes, but also a lot of crap.

Do these people just need to money or do they not read the scripts?

Next time they need help for "LINDY: THE MOVIE," please boycott and stop dancing altogether so they can never finish it.

Criminy.

So this movie is out in theaters right now or did it come out and quitely went away? I ask because this is the first I've heard of this movie. Not that I care. It's just puzzling that I have not seen anything about this movie until I looked at this thread. By the way, Nell Carter died right? And that happened in Jan 2003 so that means that filming had to be in 2002. And now it is 2004 and they are just releasing it? Something is amiss.

I've seen the movie, and it is possibly one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. The acting is top-notch and Oscar-worthy, and the dancing rivals Hellzapoppin'.

It's easy to sit there and say you'd like to have more money. And I guess that's what I like about it. It's easy. Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting that money.

Okay, that's odd that there are reviews for a movie that's not been released.

Along this journey of self-discovery, which includes confronting his father's expectations and coming to the realization that he and his fiancé no longer share a common future, a young woman named Tina (introducing Constance Brenneman) keeps reappearing, a sure sign that Anthony is heading in the right direction.
Hey, it can't be that bad. :)

I know it was an indy flick, so it wouldnt be wide release. not sure if it was released yet.

All I know is that they were casting for dancers right when I was levaing SF, Novemberish 2002. They were casting in B-Way studios


OMG some of the dancers that made the cut were absolutely wretched. Not sure who got spotlight dances, camera time, etc.... but half the casting was appearance/costume and the other half was how hot you were.

Not sure how much weight they put into the dancing aspect of it.

hehehe



has anyone seen it at all?

I got pitched to go behind the scenes for this movie last year when I worked for E! They were filming in San Fran. I couldn't convince my bosses to do a piece on it. But I am curious to see how it is.
