Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I'd say Love 'n Dancing felt like an after-school special about overcoming disabilities and being the best you can be, but I fear I'd be doing a disservice to after school specials."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Seems more like a dance studio's infomercial than a romantic comedy."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"The bottom line is that a few pretty dances aren't enough substance to make for a fulfilling, or even moderately entertaining movie when the rest of the material is so weak."
‑ Sean Gandert, Paste Magazine
"Instantly likeable, especially if you like dancing and this originally jazz-derivative but now pop/rock driven style"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"From the acting, to the music, to most importantly, the dancing everything feels amateur in this film."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Everyone moves beautifully, yet director Robert Iscove keeps such a coolly professional distance from the dancers that we never feel their heat."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"If you cut the extraneous parts of Love n' Dancing -- you know, all the ones except for the dancing scenes -- it might not be a half-bad movie."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"It is unfortunate when someone with a history of staging musical numbers and directing musical sequences can't make dialogue scenes flow."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"The film starts out as an empowerment story, gravitates toward romantic drama, has bits of lame comedy, and, of course, there's the dancing. Something for everyone, presumably, just none of it very good."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"How did it wind up in theaters? Even as a limited release? That's a mystery far more intriguing than anything on screen."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
