Flashdance and Showgirls, both for totally different reasons of course.

Breakdance came out at the same time as Breakin', both cashing in on the breakdancing craze. Only one was good enough to garner a sequel, however.

Kind of like Lambada and The Forbidden Dance, or the competing Macarena movies.

Dances with Wolves was pretty damn good. I don't remember much dancin', though.

My favorite dance scene in the movies of all time has to be in Band of Outsiders when the three stars do the Madison for like 5 minutes.

What, no love for Dirty Dancing? Shame on you guys.

For me, it's Footloose with Save the Last Dance right behind it cuz of Julia Stiles.

It's a tossup between Strictly Ballroom or Staying Alive.

Without a doubt my favorite "dance movie" is "Tap".

Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr, how can you go wrong.

Billy Madison

Favorite part is when Adam Sandler dances to I'll Tumble For Ya for no particular reason.
