Step Up

So last night I watched Crazy, Stupid, Love which I feel like is my life perfectly right now… except for that whole happy ending thing. My life is the really messy, crap part in the middle. I was basically depressed after watching that movie that I needed to watch something else to cheer me up. 

Did I pick Frozen? Nope. 

Did I pick The Goonies? Nope. 

Did I pick Brave? Hell no. For so many reasons. 

What did I pick? I picked Step Up. The original because come on that’s the best one. 

While watching one of the best dancing movies of all time (add Center Stage, Dirty Dancing, Save the Last Dance, The Company, and Black Swan to the list) I realized how much Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum are like the perfect couple. Can they be my spirit animal couple? 

I mean seriously. P-E-R-F-E-C-T. 

And how Step Up is one of the best romantic movies of all time.

Remember this? 

Or this?

Or please tell me this part didn’t make you feel something.

Ugh so beautiful. 

After watching Step Up I realized a couple things. 1) I need a night out dancing real bad. Like real bad. 2) I need to take a dance class this fall 3) I need to do what makes me happy 4) Where has Mario been for the past however many years? 5) If you want something you fight for it or you don’t really want it 6) Every girl deserves a guy who would give up the thug life for her (or his bachelor life, thug life was just more applicable in this situation 7) Finding the perfect guy is like choreographing a dance that perfectly combines hip hop and ballet, difficult and frustrating, but when it happens, damn it makes whole audiences want to stand up and cheer. 

Can Step Up happen in real life please? I guess it would like this…

Even the fake leaf drop is perfect. 

What does Step Up make you want to do?

    Ugh, for real though. Step up always has me thinking I can dance… until the next time I go dancing and I remember that I can’t actually dance. Maybe I should look into taking a class!

    I love Step Up! I was a dancer in high school and we would have marathon dance movie nights (complete with all the junk food you can imagine) while we gorged ourselves through Center Stage, Dirty Dancing (oh my don’t even get me started on when Havana Nights came out!) and of course who can forget Stomp The Yard 😉 hehe Still now, Hubby get immediately irritated when those movies come on!
