But here's the dilemma: I also really loved the original Fame. The characters were just these fragile, but impassioned people — and there were pirouettes on cars! It will always have a place on my list of dance movies.
I still want to see this new version — 'cause basically I'll see any film that features Capezios — but I'm hoping that it's different enough from its predecessor so I can just enjoy it for what it is: a total guilty pleasure.
Are you going to check out Fame this weekend? Or will you wait until it comes out on DVD, so you can do your dancing at home?
