Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average A six-word review is arguably all that's necessary for this movie: at least the dancing is hot. For the most part, it's a better film that its tepid 1987 inspiration - at least until the end. Sure, the storyline is unsurprising, but the acting is more elastic, the dialogue is less laden with clunkers, and the dance sequences arguably exhibit additional energy...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Why, then, do I give this movie two stars and the original only one? Because I have grown mellow and forgiving? Perhaps, but perhaps, too, because we go to the movies to look at the pretty pictures on the screen, like infants who like bright toys dangled before them. And "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" is a great movie to look at, with its period Havana. The dancing is well done, the music will sell a lot of soundtracks, and . . .

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 110 moviegoer opinions. They are quite mixed. Many enjoyed "Havana Nights" very much, but a significant percentage only rated it as average or below average.

Teen female is by far the biggest group of moviegoer opinions collected and this movie is primarily made for them. They loved "Havana Nights"! As the age of the females increases, their opinion of this movie decreases, but most still rated it as an enjoyable movie.

Most of the teen males enjoyed "Havana Nights." In fact, it appears they either really enjoyed it or didn't enjoy it much at all. There were very few in the middle. Like the female opinions, the male opinions go down as their age increases. The twentysomething group generally enjoyed it, giving it an overall above average opinion. Adult males were just slightly lower.

If you're teen and female GO SEE "DIRTY DANCING: HAVANA NIGHTS." Everyone else will want to be a bit cautious, but not too cautious because these opinions tell me that most will find it enjoyable, at least to some degree.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Havana: November, 1958. 18-year-old Katey Miller (Romola Garai) brings an innate curiosity and a smattering of Spanish to her new life in Cuba's lush capital, where her father has taken an executive posting at Ford. Katey is expected to join the smart set of American teenagers who are the Miller's neighbors at the exclusive Oceana Hotel. But she finds herself drawn instead to the proud, purposeful Javier (Diego Luna), a waiter who also happens to be brilliant dancer. Determined to learn the slinky, spectacular moves that Javier seems to know in his bones, Katey persuades him to partner with her in a prestigious national dance competition at Havana's glittering nightclub/casino, The Palace. Soon, the straight-A student is deceiving her parents, stealing away both day and night to discover a different part of Cuba with Javier. They meet at the steamy nightclub La Rosa Negra, where only the locals go and where the dancing is hotter than the temperature outside. Some days, they practice on the sand of an out-of-the way beach, aligning their bodies in a sensual harmony that mirrors the growing passion between them. As the night of the contest finally arrives, Katey and Javier are ready to take their place as a couple on the dance floor – unaware that the country club, and the streets of Havana itself, are about to erupt in revolutionary violence.
