The strong performances by Garai and Luna, the story's acknowledgement of Cubans' political struggles of the 1950s and the movie's unflagging sincerity help it get by.

In the 1987 Dirty Dancing and 2004's Havana-set remake, the settings of the stories are virtually the same except in their particulars.

Tries to add Cuban flavor to a familiar plot but comes up with nothing more than a bubbling stew of cliches.

I can't recall a single [movie] that crashed and burned as badly as Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights does in its last 15 minutes.

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights does have some sexy music and a few good dance sequences in a steamy nightclub, but the story is terribly contrived and the lead actors have zero chemistry.

You can definitely put this movie in the corner.

...a lukewarm and harmless fairy tale...
February 28, 2004
This is all straight-up unintended comedy, and a lot of it grooves like one of the film's many jampacked nightclubs.

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.

Havana Nights makes us long for the days when Patrick Swayze lived on Hollywood's A-list

It is hard not to smile at a movie as simple as this one. It's like a children's story, but with more rhythmic pelvic thrusting.

How do you write a review for a movie that unashamedly craps on the memory of its deservedly famed and beloved predecessor? The answer: with venom.
February 27, 2004
... even as the prosaic script gets lost in the intoxicating fantasy of the bloodless revolution, the hot heartbeat of the music drives the film with pure energy.
February 27, 2004
Superficial but entertaining.
February 27, 2004
How precious Hollywood resources ended up being diverted to this effort is a dark mystery
February 27, 2004
Definitely not a sequel and not exactly a remake, Havana Nights adds some fiery Afro-Cuban spice to the mix, but it remains a bland recipe nonetheless.
February 27, 2004
A routine Hollywood high school morality play.
