Musical Chairs (2012)
Set against the exciting backdrop of competitive ballroom dancing, Musical Chairs is about Armando (Bonilla) a Bronx-bred Latino who aspires to be a dancer but whose only way in is as handyman at a Manhattan dance studio, and Mia (Pipes), an Upper East Side princess who is the studio's star performer.

Fortunately, Armando has enough dreams for both of them and, when he hears about a wheelchair ballroom dance competition that will soon be held in NY, he sees a way to return something to Mia that she thinks is lost forever. -- (C) Paladin … More

Critic Reviews for Musical Chairs
Most of "Musical Chairs" settles for being simple, familiar and ineffective, though I suspect it'll warm a few hearts.
A feel-good romantic fantasy that is likely to inspire a hollow laugh among some people in wheelchairs.
The little-known art of wheelchair ballroom dancing is a worthy subject, but this clumsy romantic comedy is like a partner who keeps stepping on - or rolling over - your toes.
By the time the mirror ball finally spins, we have long since lost interest.
Seidelman's unflagging enthusiasm, which extends to her buoyant cast, winds up giving this superficial story a bit of unexpected depth.
Charming and upbeat, and it's stuffed with great, vibrant, insanely catchy music.
While Susan Seidelman's musical drama is contrived and formulaic, it gets a free pass mainly for being such a charming romance that at least tries to break its predictability.
Having been a dancer for a good part of my life, I found 'Musical Chairs' quite inspiring.
Simpatico if shallow, struggling to be a life-affirming, feel-good fantasy.
It's a square genre picture that's just unassuming enough to be moderately diverting.
Would-be 'triumph of the human spirit' saga set among wheelchair-bound dancers blows it through shallow concept and characterizations.
An endearing romantic drama about a creative young Puerto Rican with a passion for dance.
The schmaltzy and benign tale of a ballroom dancer who accepts and transcends her unexpected disability through the power of art and love.
