Entertainingly awful film made to cash in on the manufactured Lambada dance craze that lasted for somewhere around three days in 1990, The Forbidden Dance stars Laura Herring as a Brazilian jungle princess (no, really) sent to America to stop the Petramco corporation from deforesting her home. Along the way, she dances the Lambada. A lot. Sig Haig, Richard Lynch, and Kid Creole and the Coconuts are along for the ride. Guilty pleasures just donít get much more guilty than this.

Cheesy fun!
Mark Twain | 07/10/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Forbidden Dance is a fun movie; badly acted, horribly directed and cheesy, yet strangely engrossing and loveable. It tries to be serious, but fails for the most part because everything about it is so dated. Yet, it is energetic and lively, with upbeat songs and very HOT dancing. You'll ultimately find yourself addicted, without knowing why. Fans of Laura Harring (Mulholland Dr.) should definitely seek this out to see her in an early role. It is much better than the similar Lambada, released in theaters on the same DAY in 1990!!! As fun trivia, Lambada producers sued successfully to have the word "lambada" removed from "The Forbidden Dance"'s official title, though only "The Forbidden Dance" uses the song "Lambada" which launched the short-lived dance craze. The title is now used for the DVD release."

"Aside from how attractive I personally find the lead actress, this movie is a complete and utter waste of time. Period."
The Dark Angel | Montreal QC, Canada | 11/05/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love this movie. I seen it when it first came out in 90 and fell in love with it. So I bought it. The music itself will make you get outta your seat and start dancing right then and there.
But the Lambada dance itself is enticing and will have you craving for a dancing partner at the very moment.
I give it 4 stars, also it sends out the cheezy cliche message about "if you want something bad enough, go and get it"
