Salsa (1988)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Disco-gone-Latin, that's what's happening in Salsa, where a grease monkey who's sick and tired of knuckle-busting lives for his nights on the dance floor where he gyrates to the salsa beat. Not much plot but plenty of dancing is the fare here, as the lead guy (Robby Rosa) is out to show he's the Travolta of the Latino swing scene.

Audience Reviews for Salsa


One of my favorite 80's movies! Loved the music and dancing, with great music. Fun back in the day movie, when Salsa was it. :D Kenny Ortega is the choreographer to this cool dance movie.

Super Reviewer

A favorite.

Leo L

Super Reviewer

There is barely a plot to this cliche'd movie. Shallow and forgettable. The dancing is okay, but if it's a movie about dancing, it needs really great dancing to pull it off. The acting is fair, good music though.
