Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Sweet Hearts Dance is a cute little romantic comedy that will entertain those in the mood for an unchallenging flick and frustrate those who want a little more meat to their movies. Dance is a series of little vignettes about love and relationships and how time can affect the two; its lightness is part of its charm, but it also causes it to feel like a bit of a cheat. Many viewers will feel unfulfilled that Dance never gets deeper into its subject or its characters. While some of the dialogue is good and observational, writer Ernest Thompson also settles for bromides and easy outs. Robert Greenwald's direction is in keeping with the writing, which doesn't help those who want a little more substance; it gets the job done very neatly, but no more. Fortunately, Dance has a very winning cast. Susan Sarandon does wonders with the role of Sandra, and Elizabeth Perkins sparkles as the new girl in town. Don Johnson, in the crucial role of Wiley is quite good, natural, and likeable without being cloying. And Jeff Daniels is utterly charming as the late bloomer. The cast can't make Sweet Hearts Dance great, but they make it quite palatable.
