Musical Chairs Reviews

March 29, 2012
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.

[The film] has its heart in the right place, but with default-setting characters, loudly telegraphed emotional beats and lack of any real sizzle to enliven its maudlin moralizing, it all feels like a cursory run through a well-trodden routine.

In volleying between sitcom saucy and melodrama maudlin, all that's missing are a braying laugh track and feigned tears.

All would be forgiven if Seidelman weren't so damningly dispassionate about dance, cutting up and away from movement and devaluing the thing we'd countenance so much cheese in order to see.

Seidelman's reverential treatment of her performers, and their acutely warmhearted efforts in return, makes you wish all involved had a slightly stronger showcase for their talents.
