This sweet, sometimes clunky chick flick is a likable teen romance, but not likely to arouse the giddy swoons Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey generated back in '87.

Aside from the triteness of the dialogue, the mathematical predictability of the script and the muddling of numbskulled politics, DD: HN is a fairly enjoyable experience.

Provides entertainment sophisticated enough to entrance a sophomore in high school.

It's just about what you'd expect from a dance movie: Not much of a plot, terrific dancing and enjoyable music.

It's not nearly as groovin as the 1987 original, but 13-year-olds will probably find a lot to like. BTW, what's up with all the petite leading men?

White boys can't jump, but some white girls sure can dance.

If it was absolutely necessary to re-do "Dirty Dancing," it could be worse. Seriously.

Superficial but entertaining.

Solid dancing and a catchy soundtrack. But expect to have the time of your life again and you'll most likely be disappointed.

Looks good, sounds good and delivers what most Dirty Dancing fans are likely to expect.

Jansen might not be the best storyteller, but she's a wonderful choreographer, adapting the styles of her stars (both nondancers before the movie) to complement each other beautifully.

You may not have the time of your life, but Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights is a perfectly serviceable date movie propelled by some electric dancing and tangy salsa music.

You may have problems with the obvious, cliched story, but the dancing is incredible.

[I]t's an amiable diversion [for] those looking for a romantic movie that doesn't require too much from the audience...

You'll find the hokey material in Havana Nights strangely familiar, but it doesn't matter.

The movie made me smile. The stars have genuine charm, and the script is smarter about their relationship than one might expect.
February 26, 2004
With its likable young couple, Caribbean locales and great Cuban music, Havana Nights knocks the original Dirty Dancing off the dance floor.

Garai is lovely and sensitive, but Luna ... sparks their relationship with a radiant personality and a killer smile when they dance.

[Garai and Luna] deliver the real emotion of a first love while remaining good examples for the tweenie crowd
