beyond fred, ginger & gene

Has there ever been a dance routine in a movie as funny as the one that climaxes the high-school reunion in David Mirkin's loopy lark, “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion” (1997)? I think not.

Loopy is also the word for the inventive dance itself, performed gamely - and with much eccentricity - by Alan Cumming, Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino.

The number: “Time After Time”

The composers: Cindi Lauper and Rob Hyman

The singer: Lauper

The choreographer: Smith Wordes

The dancers: Alan Cumming, Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino

The cinematographer: Reynaldo Villalobos

The editor: David Finfer

The production designer: Mayne Berke

"I invented Post-Its!" Sorry - it's impossible to think of R&M without quoting that line.

I did not see the movie "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion" so that fanciful dance sequence was a new delight.
