The entire feature feels poorly motivated and low on energy. There's clearly something missing.

Feels engineered the way women's magazines too often do: to deliver the feel-good without burdening us with too much feeling or thought.

An unwieldy mess that gives every impression of having been made under a mandate to fill the Miramax crowd-pleaser slot.

Too bad the title Lost in Translation, which aptly describes much of the story of the Shall We Dance? remake, was already taken.

Shall We Dance? gives us characters whose lives are transformed by the beauty and joy of dancing without ever showing us how.

There are good movies about the transformative power of dance, but all this one does is parade stock characters around and hint at tiny changes they've made in their lives.

The new Dance is a lukewarm Hollywood T-ball game, where the only goal is to please every potential audience member out there in the great unknown.

Shall We Dance? never seems to rise above its syrupy premise and ballroom antics.

The best parts of Shall We Dance have more in common with Best in Show than Strictly Ballroom.

Turns a sweet, lilting story into a clunky, clichéd and tedious movie sitcom.

A sugarcoated American remake with all the same charms, but also the same flaws.

Offers attractive, inoffensive characters and a smattering of broad laughs, but it fails to use its potential to explore weightier themes such as John's mid-life crisis.

Shall we Dance is a chick flick jack-in-the-box. In the beginning it elicits wide appeal...then suddenly morphs into Lifetime fare...

[Gere's] need to telegraph sappy good-heartedness with every shot drains away all trace of eroticism.

Jeffrey Westhoff
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

The original is about the restorative power of dance. The remake is about working a rap number into the movie so kids will buy the soundtrack.

Instead of class, we get crass. Instead of living characters, we get lazy stereotypes. Instead of light effervescence, we get a lead balloon.

Shall We Dance opens so promisingly that it's a big disappointment when the picture suffers crucial missteps that throw off its entire rhythm.

Audrey Wells' badly flawed adaptation of the original screenplay tries to bridge [the] cultural gap but it doesn't work

Director Peter Chelsom pulls off the unexpected and actually produces a passable, if not entirely successful film.
