Cute romance that is marred by homophobia.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Michael Dequina

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.

Not as good as the original, but enjoyable nonetheless.

It's rather cute, but only the truly girly will fall for the decidedly Officer And A Gentlemanly denouement that injects a belated sexy note.

The 1996 original is classier, deeper, more poignant. A Ginger Rogers to this Beyoncé.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

American studios are, quite simply, incapable of the subtlety and understatement that made the Japanese original such an unforgettable classic.

Time Out
June 24, 2006
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.

Os personagens vivem crises de identidade que soam reais graças às boas performances de seus intérpretes - e isto coloca o filme acima do que permitiria seu material.
| Original Score: 4/5
February 15, 2005
Shall We Dance? stumbles into a tight corner between comedy and romance, failing to satisfy on either count.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

...if you're not prepared to watch Richard Gere pulsate for 106 minutes, you're not going to have much fun with this picture.
| Original Score: 6/10

Looking Closer
December 23, 2004
American filmmakers have [again] hammered something beautiful down into unremarkable mush. Still, it honors marriage more than any film in recent memory.
| Original Score: B-

Possesses a sunny optimism that filmgoers don't regularly see.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

... a tuxedoed Richard Gere is still one of the sexiest men on the planet

This loose remake of the Japanese hit film is disappointing in many respects, including the acting.

Internet Reviews
November 12, 2004
The studio turned a cute little charmer into a slapstick sitcom.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
Sean Burns
Philadelphia Weekly
November 8, 2004
A sweet, well-meaning pass at a story that just doesn't translate --you're gonna get stuck watching it with your mom or your girlfriend every time it shows up on TNT.

'What woman wouldn't want a handsome husband showing up at work in a tuxedo, holding one perfect rose?'
