enjoyed Shall We Dance. Nice story and just enough sexual intrigue
I had the privilege of seeing the original Japanese version back when it was released. Absolutely loved it then. Recently saw it again and loved it once more. I was willing to give this English version a try and did. Sadly, I'm speechless! The quiet longing, grace and style of the original has not been captured in this 2004 remake at all. The changes made to this version does nothing to enhance an already mediocre and weak remake. It's not that the cast don't try; they try too much that at times it really seems like a great effort on their part ,and requires a lot of effort to watch. The original is an effortless joy filled with one exquisite scene after another. Go see the original - to see how it's really done.
a good movie, staring Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopezin the main rolls of the story, would reccomend to others
Nice movie, no rubbish good to see middle age, Jennifer Lopez was good, very surprising to see her dance so well.Nice movie to watch.
This film, it's horrible plot and complete lack of logic, not only make me feel regretful for having rented it, but I also fear that it may just be stuck in my plasma and sperm count, thus dooming my grandchildren to a lifetime of wondering why people let Jennifer Lopez make films. Go rent American Gigolo instead.
What a beautiful movie .. I was pleasantly surprised by JLo's performance in this movie and the dancing was superb !! What a pity that ballroom dancing isn't as popular as it once was.
Beautiful feel good family movie.
Richard Gere seems to carry this part so well, just as he did in Pretty woman.
Would recommend to anyone.
If you are of an age where you recognise the romance of classic ball room dancing then you will enjoy this.
Richard Gere is great, Jennifer Lopez is reasonable, but the dancing and the music are worth it all.
Nice romantic comedy to watch with the missus
It is so nice to see a movie in which the couple concerned is middle aged - and at the end of the movie they still love each other. Very enjoyable.
Have ordered this one too! A really feel good picture!
A great movie for all the family.
This was a wonderful movie.. one for the girls, the guys may like it too.
Very good film.well acted.
Loved it. Good humour, good insights.
Genuine great music and dancing. You really have to see this. I loved it. Might even add to my private library. Thanks!
Thought this was a good light movie, probably more of a chick flick. Richard Gere was really good, thought Jennifer Lopez was a bit average.
A lovely feel good film that will make you want to take up dancing lessons.
Dreadful. Where is the original?
Excellent movie. Really enjoyed the story behind it. Some great characters and well acted by all.
First half very slow .. second half most enjoyable. Movie should have about 20 minutes cut.
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS MOVIE, WELL ACTED AND GOOD STORY LINE
really enjoyed the movie. this is a ladies movie,my husband,son and grandson said it was too girly for them. story line was good,easy to follow. i am a fan of Richard Gere,
never used to like richard gere but he has grown on me in later years (mine not his)
I watched this on a rainy day. The kids were at school so i got to watch it without interuption. I loved it. A nice romance without all the rubbish.
A good movie with some great moments.
This is a great movie, I really enjoyed this one.
A believable story about believable people, told against a backdrop of beautiful music and ballroom dancing.
A really moving film! Loved it!
Six times so far! 8-)
What a great movie - really a shining story well told and with great music.
Took a while to get used to the characters but eventually they proved to be excellent - a really nice movie.
What a gorgeous movie, even if it is just to watch Richard Gere come up the escalator with a single rose - WOW!!!!!! He is so gorgeous......A really nice movie, clean, funny, makes me want to start take dancing lessons. Thoroughly enjoyed this one, both on the big screen and the little one!! High Recommended.
well acted, i was even impressed by jalo. definitely a movie i have recommended to my friends
Mundane life is usually the norm with the long hours of work commitments. This movie gives new light to realize that not much is needed to brighten things up in ones life ' that's if you have the energy'!! Very light hearted, and pleasant viewing. I'm sure dance studio numbers went up when this movie came out :)
Very sweet and romantic movie
beautiful, funny, sweet movie..
Fantastic, easy to watch movie.
LOVED IT! I really connected with this movie. I Laughed, I Cryed, and I Danced. Not a fan of Richard Gere but he was superb in this flick. It's great to sit down and watch a movie without violence and bad Language. A fantastic Feel good movie.
A very entertaining film, well acted by a strong cast
A touching story but nowhere near as good as the Japanese original. Jennifer Lopez is nothing special.
The original Japanese version was much much better
a real "feel good" movie. great for a girls' night in.
A sweet film. Good values promoted, especially about marriage & family - commitment, sacrifice for the person you love, supporting the person you love.
Susan is always very entertaining. Richard hasn't lost his touch and combine it with J.Lo this movie is something to dance for.
A real girly movie. Very enjoyable, great to watch with a few close girlfriends. bring out the tissues!
Okay if you like Jennifer Lopez but I think she is an ordinary actor. Richard Gere is lovely!
The story is predictable, and the dancing not that great. As he ages Richard Gere looks more and more like a ferret, and Jennifer Lopez has the acting talent of a store dummy, but to my surprise I found this film entertaining.
A heartwarming portrayal of Love, Life and happiness.
Excellent feel-good movie.
The most magical piece of cornball fluff I've seen in years. I watched this alone, late at night and found myself smiling, giggling and crying just like when I was a kid and used to watch the good old days of movie making on TV.
Good romantic comedy. Good music and some funny scenes.
Although I am not a dancer, I did enjoy this movie. Athough my daughter-in-law predicted that after wathching the movie, I would be inspired to go to dancing class, I think that she might be wrong this time.
The movie is good, but it's not that good.
Thoroughly enjoyable--great music!
