Movie Info

Set against the exciting backdrop of competitive ballroom dancing, Musical Chairs is about Armando (Bonilla) a Bronx-bred Latino who aspires to be a dancer but whose only way in is as handyman at a Manhattan dance studio, and Mia (Pipes), an Upper East Side princess who is the studio's star performer. Though worlds apart, their shared passion for dance promises to bring them together until a tragic accident changes Mia's life forever, and she finds herself wheelchair-bound at a rehab facility, with her dreams of a dance career shattered. Fortunately, Armando has enough dreams for both of them and, when he hears about a wheelchair ballroom dance competition that will soon be held in NY, he sees a way to return something to Mia that she thinks is lost forever. -- (C) Paladin

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.

Audience Reviews for Musical Chairs

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.
