Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights is an embarrassing film when placed side by side with the original 1987 Dirty Dancing. For serious folk, the original had plenty of moral issues that were dealt with in very ambivalent ways, indeed objectively contrary to Catholic moral teaching. But you cannot fault the dancing!

Havana Nights was a disappointment on every level. And the dancing wasn’t good at all. They should have spent a little more money and blown us away with dancing that could delight audiences. This one, with its attempt to create a political backdrop, tried too hard to do too much and in the end didn’t do anything.

Too bad!
