Critic Reviews for Sweet Hearts Dance

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

This is a movie that has all of the right stuff in the soup, but no lightning.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Not only is the cast terrific, but there is a conscious attempt to evoke the feel of the season

July 21, 2006 | Rating: 3/5

An immensely likable comedy-drama.

October 5, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

Had director Robert Greenwald tightened-up the scope and made the characters more than static word vessels wasting air, I might have felt a gentle tug inside.

October 26, 2002 | Rating: 62/100

Underrated sweet story of what happily ever after really means.

August 1, 2002 | Rating: 4/5

Presents a slow and leisurely look at sexual politics in and out of marriage.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Hearts Dance


Bland comedy-drama which misses in several key areas. It's a stretch to begin with that anyone as smart and lively as Susan Sarandon's character would put up with the selfish jackass that Don Johnson plays let along long for him to return.

It was alright. Nothing spectacular about it but it didn't bore me to death either.
