Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School

Critics Consensus

Clumsily staged and brimming with melodrama and trite self-help cliches, this dance movie stays stuck at amateur level.

    Great movie. Good story plot that follows a grieving baker who connects with a total stranger's story about ballroom dancing. Great cast. Definitely worthy.

    Stars for having such a great cast. John Goodman plays a memorable character, and it has Ernie Hudson so you know you want some.

    I absolutely ADORE Mary Steenburgen but she is a horrible dancer. Carlyle was excellent. Rest of film was farfetched and flighty.
