Displays atypical laziness and tone-deaf direction for a feature concerning the electric boogaloo secrets of the underprivileged.

Even if the picture breaks no new ground, the verve of the actors and their fancy footwork is half the battle.

January 1, 2011
Clichéd dance movie with some fun moves.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 17, 2010
The dance numbers are high octane, and the characters are likable enough to make us want to hang with them through a plot we've seen so many times before it's like movie muscle memory takes over.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
February 14, 2008
Predictable dance melodrama with little to recommend it.
Full Review| Original Score: 1/5
September 14, 2007
For the movie--and audiences--the good news is that both Tatum and Dewan are just enough to best the bum script. They are likeable and their dance talent is undeniable.

The TV spots claim that it "captures the voice of a generation," and if that's the case, then the voice of the youth hasn't changed at all in the five years Save the Last Dance lit up the box office.

April 8, 2007
Tatum and Dewan have none of the chemistry of Astaire and Rogers, but with help from a good supporting cast and talented choreography, the movie rises slightly above the usual cookie-cutter dance-movie fare.

March 1, 2007
Fletcher shows no real talent for the dramatic scenes.

...this is lowest-common-denominator stuff.

Hood hooks-up with dancing debutante for across the tracks romance.

Mesmo que falhe como historinha de amor, o longa consegue levar o espectador a sair da sala com a sensação de que ao menos em seu aspecto musical o projeto não decepcionou.
| Original Score: 2/5
November 30, 2006
It's the usual case of great dancing, bad acting and even worse dialogue in this very guilty pleasure for fans of the genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 30, 2006
While Tatum has rough charm, Dewan is more dancer than actress.
October 28, 2006
...a miscast Rachel Griffiths looks uncomfortable in her role as Principal Gordon and spends her few scenes looking like she's wishing she was somewhere else.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 28, 2006
This is a cliche-ridden movie by people to whom formula is clearly mother's milk.
October 24, 2006
Debut director Anne Fletcher fails to put a new spin on umpteen romantic hoofers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 23, 2006
This unimaginative, by-the-numbers teen drama never says anything new as it blends dance styles and cultures in innercity Baltimore.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 5, 2006
Stealing freely from Save the Last Dance but unintentionally nixing the wicked dance moves, this teen turd doesn't even have the logical sense to remove its hunky lead's shirt.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
August 31, 2006
