The cast is warmly appealing, but with the loss of cultural context and addition of big-name celebrities, this American version loses the nuances of the original.

Offers attractive, inoffensive characters and a smattering of broad laughs, but it fails to use its potential to explore weightier themes such as John's mid-life crisis.
Under the clunky direction of Peter Chelsom, while forced to mouth inane dialogue by Audrey Wells ... a swell bunch of troupers get mangled in a monsoon of clichés.
There are so many appealing performers in Shall We Dance? that it's a crime the director, Peter Chelsom, and the screenwriter, Audrey Wells, haven't given them more to do.
Occasionally charming but ultimately forgettable bit of fox-trot fluff.
Takes a small, exquisite Japanese movie and turns it into a big, stupid American movie. Still, it must be said that as glossy and overproduced as the thing is, it's a good Big Stupid American movie.
Turns a sweet, lilting story into a clunky, clichéd and tedious movie sitcom.
"Shall We Dance?'' celebrates marriage, self-renewal, the benefits of acting on impulse and the courage to dance to your own mambo beat. Audiences susceptible to its charms will be dancing down the aisles.
But there is nothing even deliciously bad or even fun bad in Shall We Dance, you won't find a moment of emotional truth, anywhere, nowhere, not in Richard Gere's twinkly demeanor, or in Susan Sarandon's googly eyeballs.
Cute romance that is marred by homophobia.
Touches to make 'hip' what should be an unabashedly square story--such as the casting of Nick Cannon in a supporting role and an out-of-nowhere cameo by Ja Rule--more jar than gel.
This excellent and acclaimed cast is shoved into a film whose screenplay should have alerted them that it's not ready to go before the cameras.
Inevitably this film will be compared to its predecessor, and it simply can't win.
Richard Gere ruined this film. That is all.
This movie made me want to attend ballroom dancing lessons! lol! Anywhoo, I think Gere looked sweet, hes always charming anyway, but the contrast really showed when he was dancing with Lopez, I thought she was too much of an intense dancer to be partnered with Gere. Mwahaha, all guys should learn how to dance, its so cute hahaha!
Any good in this film is pretty much drowned out by the predictability factor. It's cinematic fluff that hits all the right buttons to impress it's target audience which it does very well. Satisfactory acting, a few laughs and ridiculous moments of going "AAAWWW" mean you know within 4 minutes if this is a film for you.
