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.

Seems more like a dance studio's infomercial than a romantic comedy.

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.

From the acting, to the music, to most importantly, the dancing everything feels amateur in this film.

Everyone moves beautifully, yet director Robert Iscove keeps such a coolly professional distance from the dancers that we never feel their heat.

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.

It is unfortunate when someone with a history of staging musical numbers and directing musical sequences can't make dialogue scenes flow.

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.

How did it wind up in theaters? Even as a limited release? That's a mystery far more intriguing than anything on screen.

The costumes and dancing were great, but the rest of the movie was pretty underwhelming.
