I can tap-dance. You wanna see me tap-dance?
I really hate tap dance scenes. Natalie Portman in Garden State. Susan Sarandon in Elizabethtown. Even Kate Winslet doing this. Its annoying and very Manic Pixie Dream Girl. I hate that they are pitching Blue Valentine to be another Wimpster meets MPDG scenario because from all reports ITS NOT. Preview makers suck don't they?
For every rule there is an exception - Jamie Bell can tap dance anytime he wants.
I should also mention that musicals are the exception to this rule - this is about non-musicals films that just throw in some tap dancing jus' for the cutesy factor and often its like 'your tap dancing totally sucks anyway'.
