Factual errors

Plot holes 

A major plot point is John's realization during the dance competition that his wife and daughter are in the audience, meaning they have discovered his secret. However, the idea that Bobbie would hear someone in the crowd yelling "Go, Dad!" over the music and would assume it was John's daughter is preposterous. Even more preposterous is the suggestion that a couple in a dance competition would break their concentration to have such a frivolous conversation.
