Save The Last Dance 2 is an entertaining film, although the storyline isn't as poignant or well written as the original film. Certain elements of the film will remind a true film buff of the 80's dance film Girls Just Want To Have Fun The Movie. Take Save The Last Dance 2 for what it's worth, 82 minutes of home entertainment. The film includes a hip-hop flavored soundtrack and a guest appearance from R&B sensation Ne-Yo. One thing I noticed is several times the actresses native accent slips through in a few scenes. Izabella Miko is a Polish native who moved to the United States to pursue a ballet career, so she is no stranger to the ballet world.
Save The Last Dance 2 is rated PG-13. As for the rating, there isn't much harsh language but there is a rather intimate bedroom love scene between the two lead characters which was pretty unnecessary.
However...there is something that makes me like this one better...although I LOVE the first one's final dance solo better and have watched that part of the film over and over.
This one just had a lot more funny characters and was notably LIGHTER in tone. The surprise is the final dance group number that is delightful.
Isabella Miko is STUNNING as Sarah. However her dance numbers just don't sizzle (aside from one early ballet solo)...mostly just so so. Columbus Short has an ELECTRIFYING smile and made the movie doubly enjoyable. Jacqueline Bisset was excellent as the hard nosed Julliard dance professor.
This is a light film that will make you smile.
Miko actually isn't that bad, she's just not a patch on Stiles.
Given that the action has moved to New York and "my boyfriend and I decided to see other people", this means we lose any real continuity with the first movie.
Columbus Short however as the love interest is easy on the eye and pretty good in the role, though the lead couple don't really have the chemistry to make it completely believable.
Jacqueline Bisset is formidable as the scary ballet mistress who makes Sara's life a misery, and there are some other good supporting performances.
To watch, it feels like a long-ish movie, even though it's just 80 minutes long. I think probably because of a worn out plot and no huge surprises or plot twists (there's just the one, which I found pretty unbelievable, so it didn't really hit home).
All in all, it's an OK movie: for a chick flick or a teen night in, you could do better but you could also do SO much worse. However as a sequel to a strong movie like Save The Last Dance, it falls rather flat, and certainly doesn't conclude nearly as strongly as the first did. It would have worked better as a stand alone movie, although of course you can understand the desire to build on the success of the hit.
Overall, it's fine: some good music on the soundtrack, some decent performances, some good dancing and a couple of really clever shots cinematically. It's reasonably rewarding to watch. Just don't expect anything of the calibre, thematically or in terms of the quality of performances etc, that you saw in the first movie.
