Most of "Musical Chairs" settles for being simple, familiar and ineffective, though I suspect it'll warm a few hearts.
A feel-good romantic fantasy that is likely to inspire a hollow laugh among some people in wheelchairs.
The little-known art of wheelchair ballroom dancing is a worthy subject, but this clumsy romantic comedy is like a partner who keeps stepping on - or rolling over - your toes.
By the time the mirror ball finally spins, we have long since lost interest.
Seidelman's unflagging enthusiasm, which extends to her buoyant cast, winds up giving this superficial story a bit of unexpected depth.
Charming and upbeat, and it's stuffed with great, vibrant, insanely catchy music.
While Susan Seidelman's musical drama is contrived and formulaic, it gets a free pass mainly for being such a charming romance that at least tries to break its predictability.
Having been a dancer for a good part of my life, I found 'Musical Chairs' quite inspiring.
Simpatico if shallow, struggling to be a life-affirming, feel-good fantasy.
Injured dancer learns new moves in inspiring, trite tale.
It's a square genre picture that's just unassuming enough to be moderately diverting.
Would-be 'triumph of the human spirit' saga set among wheelchair-bound dancers blows it through shallow concept and characterizations.
Nice heartwarming original story. It was a little slow at times but picks up with little comedy and coming off she live story. Is with seeing for those that like dancing especially.
