Movie Info

In this frothy drama, the "heavenly bodies" belong to Samantha (Cynthia Dale), a woman determined to open a dance instruction school, and the people who come to learn dance there. Once the deserted warehouse-cum-dance-studio is refurbished, Cynthia's first class already has as much finesse as Fred Astaire at his apogee, so when Cynthia's ideal world is threatened by the owner of a rival health club, it is fairly easy for her students to come to the rescue with their deft dance routines. Life never seems to delve much below the balletic, athletic, or aerobic surface as the adventures of Cynthia, and her students continue along a self-absorbed course.

Critic Reviews for Heavenly Bodies

All Critics (2)

A trite and plotless cult musical about aerobics mixed with a tepid romance story that's directed by Canadian character actor Lawrence Dane.

Audience Reviews for Heavenly Bodies

Awful Flashdance rip off. Plot, characterizations, acting skills, choice of soundtrack muisc, cinematography all suck the big one. Why do I still give this turd a 40% rating and not lower? Star Cynthia Dale. She is so smoking hot. 90% of this movie is her doing aerobics wearing flattering, very revealing 80's spandex, leg warmers, and other body hugging outfits. And she has the sweetest smile, and is so good hearted, her charm could melt the hearts of the most jaded of viewers. The climax of this movie, where she battles other dancers in an aerobics marathon, she's a dynamo. Like the Energizer bunny, she keeps going and going, pouring with sweat. It's like the "Maniac" workout scene from Flashdance, only 10 times longer and 10 times more intense. This chick is in shape.
