Editorial Reviews

Diego Luna, Romola Garai, Sela Ward. Havana nights have never been hotter than this steamy tale of a forbidden underground dance club where the rhythm never stops even when Cuba is about to explode into revolution. 2004/color/105 min/PG-13/widescreen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great showcase for Diego Luna February 27, 2004
17-year old Katey (Romola Garai) and her wealthy family have moved to Havana in 1958 and are living in a first-class hotel. Katey accidentally causes a young Cuban waiter (Diego Luna) to lose his job; there is a mutual attraction, and they share a love of dancing. They prepare for the big Latin dance contest, but Castro's revolution is about to change everything.

Diego Luna, who was so charming in Y Tu Mama Tambien, gets five stars from me. Here he is sweet and very likeable, a terrific dancer, and oozes teenage appeal. Co-star Romola Garai is fine, too, and the Cuban music and dance scenes are appropriately steamy. The script and the photography earn three stars, however. The story tries to balance youthful flirtation with the serious theme of political revolution. Two movies could have been made, but one seems unconnected and somewhat shallow. The whole movie was filmed in very dim lighting, even in sunlight, giving it a B-movie look.

But Havana Nights is a pleasant movie with an appealing star, and I recommend it to those who like Cuban music, dancing, and teen romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The Original August 4, 2004
Format:DVD
I didn't think I would like this one better than the original. The original is a classic-- the perfect 80s movie, but the new one is so much more sensual and emotional. My only complaint is that it ended much too quickly, without much closure for the audience, but otherwise this film is a joy to watch.

Katie (Romola Garai) has just moved to pre-revolution Cuba. She's a total bookworm, but when she meets hotel waiter Javier (the marvelous Diego Luna) she's completely swept away. The basic story follows that of the original-- she doesn't know how to "feel" the music, her parents dissaprove of the guy she likes, preferring her to date the guy she hates.

The cinematography is impressive, and the colors are amazing-- lots of reds and oranges. It's so picturesque. The performances were great, the dancing was wonderful (although I don't think the dancing was necessarily dirty, it was much more beautiful and sensual than the dancing in the original). I really like that Patrick Swayze makes an appearance as a dance instructor. His limited screen time is awesome.

Definitely check this one out. If your a fan of the original, don't snub this one, you may like it better. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars What this movie loses in plot it makes up in dancing February 28, 2004
By A Customer
Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights is the story of a young woman's discoveries about life and love in Havana during the Cuban revolution. The plot is well-worn and predictable, but Diego Luna and Romola Garai do a great job as Javier and Katey. The dancing is part of what drew me to this film...and I wasn't disappointed. The dancing is exciting and crowd-pleasing. It seems hard to believe that Luna and Garai had no dancing training prior to the film. Corny duologue down-graded some of the most meaningful or intimate scenes of the movie, and these parts of the film would have been better if the characters had not spoken at all instead of delivering cliqued lines. Overall, though, the film was enjoyable and fun. Two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it! July 23, 2004
Format:DVD
Despite all of the bad reviews that 'Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights' received, I watched it anyway. I've always sort of had a place in my heart for Latin music, dancing, and a fascination with other cultures. I thought that a new version might give the '80s original new life. I loved every moment of the film.

Yes, some of the dialogue was corny, and yes, some of the plot was lame. But in light of these vices, I found the performances from the two leads excellent! Luna's first English film was great, and so different than 'Y Tu Mama Tambien.'

The music is incredible. The dancing is tantric. The culture and atmosphere is steamy. Overall: a very hot movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I paid matinee for March 7, 2004
No, I didn't see this movie for the dancing, or to scope out Romola Garai. I didn't even go to give a critical analysis of the depiction of Cuba on the fateful New Year's Eve 1958, even though the film's full theatrical title is: "Dirty Dancing Havana Nights Based On True Events".
None of that. I went because it's "Dirty Dancing". I saw the original in the theater when I was 13, just days after falling in love with a young blonde from Queens named Veronica, who I met a a Catskills resort nothing at all like Kellerman's. I felt kinship with Baby, even though the only person who forbade my romance was Veronica herself, tragically into older men. And now I wanted to see the followup, filmed in the same Old San Juan where I got engaged this winter.
"Dirty Dancing" and I matured together. Over time I watched it blossom into a pop culture camp classic. Who here of a certain age doesn't instinctively break into giggles upon hearing "Nobody puts Baby in the corner"?
"Havana Nights" brings out the big movie guns in an attempt to recapture the magic of the original. This is a Miramax film, so you know Harvey Weinstein was putting in the late nights helping polish the rough cut into a theatrical diamond. Lawrence Bender, who made his bones on the early Tarantino epics, produced. Mya Harrison and Heather Headley both show up for star vocal turns.
And, of course, Patrick Swayze is back. He is billed only as "Dance Class Instructor". He appears in only two scenes (probably shot the same morning) and applauds and whistles in a couple of reaction-shot inserts, quite possibly filmed in his home, months after production wrapped. But we all know who he is supposed to be. Welcome back, Johnny Castle!
Swayze was in his early-to-mid 30s when the first "Dirty" came out.
