    A pelvis-gyrating, ponytail-releasing, shirt-unbuttoning good time.
  2. Even as the prosaic script gets lost in the intoxicating fantasy of the bloodless revolution, the hot heartbeat of the music drives the film with pure energy.

    The plot construction here is especially lazy. The whole movie is built toward the dance competition.

    Luna and Garai struggle to look like they're having the time of their life. But the movie, more wan than wicked, proves you can't go home again.
  5. It's disappointing the film is so sketchy and underdeveloped. The filmmakers may have sold their story short.

    In the end, they are only moments, and even at a merciful 86 minutes, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights feels formidably long.

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