Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights

What a fun movie! With comparable dancing, an equally kick-ass soundtrack, and all of the cheese of the original Dirty Dancing, this was a very entertaining movie. It had a similar vibe, but wasn’t so identical as to feel formulaic. Patrick Swayze has a cameo in a couple of scenes, reprising his role as Johnny Castle, dance instructor to the rich and beautiful (although Swayze isn’t as beautiful as he once was). And newcomers Romola Garai and Diego Luna do an amazing job of fooling the audience into thinking they were child dance prodigies (neither had danced before this movie). If you are feeling nostalgic for the first one, go see this movie and have the time of your life all over again.
