Further proof that a great cast -- and there's a lot of talent here -- does not make a great movie. Sentimental, whimsical, slightly quirky. Slight.

Cute, not the deepest movie ever, though the story had the potential to be, but a rather lackluster and banal script let it and the great cast down. Robert Carlyle is a phenomenal actor but he didn't get too much of a chance to show his range here.

Excellent story. Hard as it was for the characters, it was great to see men expressing emotions with words. John Goodman's character had a clever twist at the end. I loved the metaphors about how dancing can you show you how to live.

It was sweet !
Did not expect to see John Candy in such a role, but he pulled it off.

Just F.Y.I. ...that's John Goodman not John Candy. Have a good day.

Would have preferred Adam Arkin or Ernie Hudson in the role of the main character, Frank Keane. Too many good actors were relegated to side characters, so didn't get enough screen time. A cute but inconsistent story, so I gave it only 2 out of 5 stars.

I enjoyed Robert Carlyle but both Arkin and Hudson are very good actors.

A sweet and generous labor of love on the parts of the entire cast. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves, even Danny DeVito in a last-minute and entirely cameo which can only be attributed to pure love of the script.

What a lovely film1 But Shall We Dance was first a Japanese film.

This wasn't a remake of Shall We Dance? it was a feature length adaption of a 10 or 12 year older short film. The remake of Shall We Dance? starred Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon and Jennifer Lopez.
