Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The real creative opportunities lie in visual and choreographic options, and Haines doesn't miss a beat in either department."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"Although the movie bubbles occasionally, it never boils."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Upbeat dance-romance is fine for tweens and up."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Sparkles just like an old-fashioned musical--it's beautifully designed and skillfully directed."
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
"A great big summer cheeseball of a movie that mildly entertains but doesn't stimulate."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"The use of Plowright as a middle-aged frump wanting to get in on the sexy action is deeply patronizing."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, Time Out
"Throughout the film, Haines treats...banal moments as epiphanies, telegraphing every feeling and thought with annoying coyness."
‑ Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times
"For every cliché embraced in its entirety, another is subverted just enough that you're pleasantly surprised."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A quality film."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Competent but predictable soap opera."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"What is it about dance, that most joyous of arts, that inspires so many bad movies?"
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Although Dance With Me disappoints on almost every level, it still leaves you mildly elated..."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Too insubstantial to rise above being anything other than feel-good fluff..."
‑ , Film4
"When it turns its attention to bodies in motion, writhing across the floor to a salsa beat, the film is a joy to watch. When drama takes center stage, which is all too often, 'Dance' drags its feet."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Two hours-plus of melodrama and dancing dancing dancing danczzzz zzzz zzzzzzzz...."
‑ Christopher Null,
