I'd say Love 'n Dancing felt like an after-school special about overcoming disabilities and being the best you can be, but I fear I'd be doing a disservice to after school specials.
From the acting, to the music, to most importantly, the dancing everything feels amateur in this film.
It is unfortunate when someone with a history of staging musical numbers and directing musical sequences can't make dialogue scenes flow.
Seems more like a dance studio's infomercial than a romantic comedy.
Everyone moves beautifully, yet director Robert Iscove keeps such a coolly professional distance from the dancers that we never feel their heat.
The film starts out as an empowerment story, gravitates toward romantic drama, has bits of lame comedy, and, of course, there's the dancing. Something for everyone, presumably, just none of it very good.
The bottom line is that a few pretty dances aren't enough substance to make for a fulfilling, or even moderately entertaining movie when the rest of the material is so weak.
If you cut the extraneous parts of Love n' Dancing -- you know, all the ones except for the dancing scenes -- it might not be a half-bad movie.
How did it wind up in theaters? Even as a limited release? That's a mystery far more intriguing than anything on screen.
Instantly likeable, especially if you like dancing and this originally jazz-derivative but now pop/rock driven style
Bland as its title, Love N' Dancing extends the cliches of the dance-and-romance genre -- so overplayed that it's targeted for a Wayans brothers spoof later this month -- to the world of West Coast Swing.
The costumes and dancing were great, but the rest of the movie was pretty underwhelming.
I am amazed at this movie. I had no idea what to expect, and I ended up really, really liking it. Betty White showed up for a minute, and had a one liner that absolutely cracked me up! Billy Zane was very funny and very charming. It has been a really long time since I have seen him in a movie that he played that kind of character. That man is timeless. I dont think that he ages at all. The whole quality of this movie is really great.
I couldn't enjoy this "Energetic Filled Melo-Drama that isn't sure if it is Dumb Enough to be "Dirty dancing", or smart enough to survive as Original, Like" Save the Last Dance".
Another dancing movie but this one seemed to win me over..I am a big of Amy Smart...Billy Zane did a great job too.
