Mad Hot Ballroom: enjoyable, but not one of my favorite documentaries.

I got Mad Hot Ballroom from NetFlix a few weeks ago but hadn't made the time to watch it, so I made it this week's Date Night movie along with a Dublin Dr. Pepper and a fun size Twix.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I'm not sure it would have been as good for anyone watching it with me because I let the occasional admonition slip during the competition pieces. I know they can't hear me, but I told kids to stand straighter and get their feet together anyway. *wry grin*

Overall: great story, okay cinematography. Some of the subtitling is hilarious in a "what dialect did the translator hear that in?" way.
