Critic Reviews of "Shall We Dance"Time OutJune 24, 2006
Offers attractive, inoffensive characters and a smattering of broad laughs, but it fails to use its potential to explore weightier themes such as John's mid-life crisis.New York ObserverOctober 21, 2004
Under the clunky direction of Peter Chelsom, while forced to mouth inane dialogue by Audrey Wells ... a swell bunch of troupers get mangled in a monsoon of clich√©s.Salon.comOctober 19, 2004
There are so many appealing performers in Shall We Dance? that it's a crime the director, Peter Chelsom, and the screenwriter, Audrey Wells, haven't given them more to do.Washington PostOctober 15, 2004
Occasionally charming but ultimately forgettable bit of fox-trot fluff.Washington PostOctober 15, 2004
Takes a small, exquisite Japanese movie and turns it into a big, stupid American movie. Still, it must be said that as glossy and overproduced as the thing is, it's a good Big Stupid American movie.USA TodayOctober 15, 2004
Turns a sweet, lilting story into a clunky, clich√©d and tedious movie sitcom.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Cute romance that is marred by homophobia.TheMovieReport.comDecember 29, 2008
Touches to make 'hip' what should be an unabashedly square story--such as the casting of Nick Cannon in a supporting role and an out-of-nowhere cameo by Ja Rule--more jar than gel.Urban CinefileOctober 18, 2008
This excellent and acclaimed cast is shoved into a film whose screenplay should have alerted them that it's not ready to go before the cameras.Movie HabitOctober 18, 2008
Inevitably this film will be compared to its predecessor, and it simply can't win.Laramie Movie ScopeSeptember 04, 2007
Not as good as the original, but enjoyable nonetheless.Empire MagazineDecember 30, 2006
It's rather cute, but only the truly girly will fall for the decidedly Officer And A Gentlemanly denouement that injects a belated sexy note.
