Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (boom mic visible): When Pierre is talking to a student in his dance studio, a boom microphone can be seen in the window behind the two characters.
  • Originally, Antonio Banderas turned down the part of Pierre when he looked at the script and realized the whole film was about ballroom dancing. The producers begged him for a few minutes for them to explain the story. After hearing this, viewing a documentary on and meeting the real Pierre, Banderas signed on.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): At the dance competition Dulaine lets Rock borrow his Tux coat. Dulaine is much smaller than Rock however, the coat looks over sized on Rock when he's on the dance floor.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Since the students in Pierre's class had never competed before, they would be automatically in the newcomer category, whereas the students from Pierre's studio would be competing at higher levels of bronze, silver, gold or open syllabus. Also, the students would be disqualified from dancing moves that were non-newcomer/bronze syllabus, which several of them did.
