All Critics (46) | Top Critics (14)

The real creative opportunities lie in visual and choreographic options, and Haines doesn't miss a beat in either department.

The use of Plowright as a middle-aged frump wanting to get in on the sexy action is deeply patronizing.

What is it about dance, that most joyous of arts, that inspires so many bad movies?

Although the movie bubbles occasionally, it never boils.

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.
