Not only is the cast terrific, but there is a conscious attempt to evoke the feel of the season

An immensely likable comedy-drama.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Hearts Dance


Bland comedy-drama which misses in several key areas. It's a stretch to begin with that anyone as smart and lively as Susan Sarandon's character would put up with the selfish jackass that Don Johnson plays let along long for him to return.

It was alright. Nothing spectacular about it but it didn't bore me to death either.
