Movie Reviews

Where's the rest of the movie?

"I bought this VHS for my daughter, who is starting gymnastics lessons on the fall. While it was a good introduction to gymnastics for her, I can't help but feel really cheated. There is a LOT missing from this VHS version! There are scenes that abruptly cut off without explanation. There is a nice scene in the beginning where Nadia meets another little gymnast, they do an impromptu gymnastics routine together and lie on the mat and talk. That entire scene was cut out, so you're left not even knowing that they are friends. The was a lot more missing - more towards the end, that I realized after the film was over. I'm not sure why they didn't just release the film in its entirety, but it left the viewer with a feeling that character development was rather shallow, and it was more like a quick after-school special than a "bio", which is what the original version was. I would suggest waiting for this to eventually reappear on cable, rather than buying this version if you want something complete."
A must see !! Nadia is Great !!

"Nadia has been my favorite movie (and her my idol) since the 1st time I saw it at the age of 6. In reference to the other comment about the movie being edited, it's not. I have the original tv broadcast on tape that I recorded, and a copy I bought here on They are both the same.The VHS version does have Nadia and Teodora doing their friendship routine when they first meet. This movie is an inspiration to anybody, even if they're not in gymnastics. My favorite part of the movie is that they actually show Nadia's uneven bar routine from the Montreal Olympics (in slow motion)so you can see just how perfect it was! This movie is a must have. I just wish it was on DVD. My tape is really getting worn out."
Great movie!

"This is one of my favorite childhood movies. Although my mother still has the original movie recorded of TV from 1984, I was able to purchase a copy of this VHS cheap a few years ago. It's nice to see it without having to fast forward through the commercials.

Before the recent Olympics (2004), I showed this movie to the young girls I nanny for, and they loved it. With this movie and then watching the current Olympic gymnastics, they both signed up for classes and are gymnastics nuts now. They even have dolls that they have play Nadia and Teodora and do all the tricks with them. I would recommend this movie to anyone with young daughters.

P.S. In response to the review below, my purchased VHS has no cut scenes. It is exactly the same as the version my mom recorded off TV. It has all the scenes in it that she mentioned were missing from hers, so I'm not sure what happened with hers."
