What is it about dance, that most joyous of arts, that inspires so many bad movies?
New York Times:
Although Dance With Me disappoints on almost every level, it still leaves you mildly elated...
Los Angeles Times:
Throughout the film, Haines treats...banal moments as epiphanies, telegraphing every feeling and thought with annoying coyness.
This film's storyline couldn't be more pedestrian if it tried.
As far as feel-good movies go, this one works in spite of a bloated running length (over two hours) and a plot that could use an injection of originality.
The movie sees Ruby, the Williams character, clearly and with surprising truthfulness; she has a depth associated with more serious movies.
The use of Plowright as a middle-aged frump wanting to get in on the sexy action is deeply patronizing.
The real creative opportunities lie in visual and choreographic options, and Haines doesn't miss a beat in either department.
