What is the best dance scene in movie history?

Brought to you by MyOmniPass

From Singin' In The Rain to Step Up, everyone has a favourite.

Cinema loves a good dance.


There is something inherently eye-popping about a well-choreographed dance scene, but there are so many different types of dance scene.

You have the pre-ordained dance set-pieces, like in Magic Mike or Step Up, or the incredible opening scene from the movie that caused The Big Reviewski gang to ask this question in the first place, Hustlers.

Or you have the more impromptu dance numbers, where the characters spontaneously burst into a fit of dancing (and probably singing, too), because the emotion of the movie has led them that way.

The Big Reviewski gang have provided their answers below, kicking off from 02:25:


Justine went with (500) Days Of Summer, when Joseph Gordon-Levitt imagines a huge, street-wide dance-scene to help him celebrate landing the lady of his dreams. Of course, we all know how it ends for him in reality, but it is nice to indulge in a little bit of fantasy every now and then.

Paul chose the iconic dance between John Travolta and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, as they get up in the middle of a retro diner in order to win a big trophy. This is Pulp Fiction, we don't need to tell you what happens here!

Rory decided to go with something a little darker, but no less cool: the unnervingly perfectly timed dance scene from Ex Machina, when Oscar Isaac and his assistance put on a little show for Domhnall Gleeson in a horror-red room.


And finally, Eoghan went with the Twist & Shout scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but because The Beatles are zero craic, we couldn't use any of the music from that scene in this week's show.

Somehow, none of us went for Showgirls, but here we are.

So, let us know on Twitter or on Facebook, what is the greatest dance scene in movie history, and why?
