  • John And Beverly Clark
    1,264 words
    You expect a 'comedy' to tickle your funny bone so you can walk out chuckling. Yes, Shall We Dance does raise laughs. But - it also raises some interesting questions. The DVD says it's 'A New Comedy About Following Your Own Lead' and a pun like that is bound to appeal to the individualistic age we are supposed to be living in. It does indeed - and yet, what is happiness and contentment? Is it a lovely, loving and loved spouse and all the trappings of a comfortable settled life? Can there be a se...

It gives us a lot of insight in handling different challenges faced by administrators. There were a couple of interesting points that struck me while watching the movie. I especially liked the line at the start of the movie - "Discipline is not the enemy of enthusiasm". This line is very true.
