PG13 90min 2009
When a bored-with-life English teacher meets a West Coast Swing champion dancer, they have an instant connection. Both feel that the other can fulfill what was missing in their lives. But Jessica’s got a workaholic fiancée who’s not a bad guy when he’s not on his Blackberry, and Jake’s got his former partner Corinne, who just won’t let Jake away from the dangling carrot of a rekindled relationship. Jake and Jessica must try to elude all obstacles, romantic or otherwise, to stay focused on the goal – winning the World Title and winning each other. Will they give in to the pressure or come out like champs? Written by lndguy
This is a great film that teens and adults can watch and appreciate together. This is the spirit of what independent films are about. Telling an interesting story without all the Hollywood drawbacks. Love N’ Dancing is entertaining but also had a message to it.
A nice change of pace for Amy Smart. This role complemented her where as the dancing progress either make-up or the dancing did bring out a glow in her. Bring out a natural sexiness to her. It one of the things that makes this film work her transformation.
Love N’ Dancing has an great message about fulfilling one’s potential despite a disability. It showed that you have the ability to overcome if you work for it. A great message for everyone out in the world.
Although it a romantic movie it doesn’t pigeon-hole itself as a “chick-flick”. If you have an appreciate for dance then you will like this film. It you like an obvious love story then it for you. Love N’ Dancing is a film you can enjoy with tweens and older.
I give Love N’ Dancing 3 out 5 Gs.
