Some bad movies are simply bad because of incompetence or miscalculation; here is one that begins with the distinction of confusion and follows through with it until the last befuddling frame.

It's too actively poor to accuse it of being "boring".

Audience Reviews for Lambada


J. Eddie Peck is a high school Math teacher at a Beverly Hills school by day and a lambada dancer by night. He gets involved with some under-privileged kids and gives them lessons on how to do the Lambada--a hot new Latin dance! Not as good as "Footloose" or "Dirty Dancing" but the dance scenes are exciting and provocative.

I forgotten how cheesy this early 90's movie was, but can't help but to watch again.

There's something incredibly disturbing about Melora Hardin doing the dirty dancing.. Were this two separate films pieced together at editing?
