Audience Reviews for Shall We Dance

  • Apr 02, 2012
    Fred Astaire--Ginger Rogers musicals, Shall We Dance casts Astaire as a world-renowned ballet dancer and Rogers as a musical comedy headliner. Rogers' manager Jerome Cowan concocts a phony romance between his client and Astaire in order to garner publicity for them both. Eventually, of course, the twosome falls in love for real, but not before a cornucopia of confusion, complications and misunderstandings. Highlights include a number performed on roller skates and Astaire's dance solo in the art-deco boiler room of an ocean liner. Not as good as "The Gay Divorcee" but has it's moments mixing comedy, humour and dance styles. Astaire and Rogers are a good fit together even when they don't want to be partnered with one another.

    It was a great move to have Astaire be a ballet instructor in the script, because his style is so ballet it's ridiculous. Their duets are so, so magical I never want the film to end. And they work together incredibly well, too - the dog walking scene is just adorable.

    This movie is funny and has a good number of stars. I don't really care for all the dance numbers, but if you like Fred and Ginger you will like this movie.
