    In the end, they are only moments, and even at a merciful 86 minutes, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights feels formidably long.
  2. About three-quarters of the way through, Havana Nights suddenly becomes laugh-out-loud awful, with dreadful, lame lines delivered painfully badly - as if a different screenwriter and director had taken over for the movie's final act.

    If you can't find a more scintillating brand of dirty to enjoy during your own nights (Helena or Hoboken), you're not trying very hard.

    Despite being set in 1958 Cuba, Havana Nights sticks to the formula. This would be perfectly acceptable if the dancing was "dirtier" and if there was a spark between the young couple.

    This cinematic train wreck reminds me of when Hollywood decided to cash in on the success of “Chinatown” by making a sequel...

    Silly, misguided, formulaic and largely a piece of trash, but it's not quite a disaster. There's the dancing and the music and the sunlight.

    It's one of the rare films for which a blooper reel would be redundant.

    The movie is still a routine Hollywood high school morality play.
  9. This belated "reimagining" is as beguiling as a dried-out palm tree.
  10. Has some good music and hot dancing -- filmed choppily -- but it completely lacks the magic of its predecessor.

    Havana Nights es mucho frío -- the only titter of excitement comes in a cameo from a strangely reptilian Patrick Swayze.
