Heel and Toe
Have you ever had the urge to shake your booty? What about going to a wedding and not making a complete fool of yourself out on the dance floor? I certainly have, but I have the self control to resist both urges. I have, however, also had urges to take up dance lessons. I think it may be fun. Im talking about the type featured in Shall We Dance, not the scary local dance schools who are infested by small children.
I saw this on a large screen in a small cinema. It was too close for me even. I like to sit mid cinema at the local Birch cinemas normally. Back on topic now.
JLo and Richard Gere: strange coupling. Thankfully it's not the typical romcom. A remake of a Japanese film, Shall We Dance suffers from a Hollywood do-over, but manages to play out satisfactorily. There's no Oscars needed. No one really stretches their acting chops, but what this film does is give you a fun film that plucks the right chords and doesn't challenge. If you aren't terribly critical of the world, you'll likely leave the cinema feeling a bit happier than you went in, and possibly have a slight bounce in your step. If you want good film making then I believe the original is worth seeking.
