Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights - Comments and Message Board

Granted Luna's physique does not resemble Swayze's, nonetheless he is still engaging, sexy, and moved like a cool breeze off a smooth ocean. Never mind the fact that he is Mexican, speaking in a Cuban dialect...Clearly a point overlooked by this critic. Though initially I didn't care for the match of Romola with Diego, you have to give her credit for her efforts in pulling off an American accent when she is so very English! Despite the critics' attempt to dispel the dancing chemistry between these two due to her size, their charming playful antics made you laugh, and then they slay you with accomplished, graceful and sensual beauty together. The event of the competition takes your breath away as they finally show you what they've learned. Getting to know the characters, though it is brief, you discover Katie’s Mom gave up dance when she became pregnant, but who cares, this story was not about them, but about two young people coming of age and the part "dancing" plays in getting them there. The character Javier was dedicated to being a useful member of his family in the absence of his father, and under the austere eye of his radical brother. As for Katie, she was placed so high on a pedestal she had no direction other then that of a snobbish demeanor. However, she displays a compassionate heart, something her comrades’ lack, rendering her able to except the native folk, their simple joy of life and the pleasure dance has brought to her. She and Javier were endearing together and one gets the pain of their force separation. The critic should watch the movie again; it appears he/she definitely missed it!
