Movie Reviews

Mediocre, bad dancing
permutations | New York, NY USA | 11/10/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is an over-the-top romantic comedy - not a great script, but not terrible. There was enough there that the movie might have been good except for one fatal weakness: the dancing was awful. As Hugh Laurie says in his cast interview, the Raymond character is supposed to come alive when he dances, transform from drab to electrically sexy. Laurie just wasn't able to pull this off. I love Hugh Laurie - I'm a huge fan of House - but he was badly miscast. He has no physical grace, and can't dance at all. Nunes' dancing was a little better, but still not great. Why did they not use real dancers in a film where dancing is so central? Neither Laurie nor Nunes had ever danced before the film. Also, there was oddly little chemistry between them. Nunes is gorgeous, though - perfect body.

"I loved this movie.
It's just pure fun.
And of course, it has Hugh Laurie in it,
it has to be a great movie!"
Hugh Laurie is so cute!
