One-line Reviews (12)

The plot line was poor, confusing and the ending was really unclear.

Furthermore, the characters which are superficially presented (for some of them you might even wonder why are they even present in the movie) participate in a series of even more predictable events (comparing to its predecessor) which ultimately lead to an unsatisfying and expected finale.

The acting was good enough, directing was OK, although the editing was quite bizarre, scenes were like suddenly changing that at some point made the movie a little bit hard to follow at a certain plot twist.

On the first appearance of the room mate, Zoe (who even has a cliché quirky brunette name) we see that the writer clearly doesn't even have the basic knowledge required for his craft.

I could list many other flaws in the story, but "Save the Last Dance 2" is also pleasant and entertaining if the viewer does not think much about the plot.

All of the background characters are offensively trite.

Boring and poorly done.

Its because they are so formulaic they needn't introduce you to the world because you come to the theater already tuned.

Total waste of money.

From here the film is pretty predictable, what is Sarah's real dream and how can she reach it.

Most Hollywood dance movies are very poorly done, simply because they rarely cast anyone with the requisite training to make the dancing sequences enjoyable, believable, or even worth watching.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
