PG-13
Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights is a film about Katey Miller (Romola Garai) and her family’s relocation to 1958 Havana, where she meets Javier (Diego Luna), a young man with a gift for salsa dancing. This was not what Katey’s parents, Jeannie (Sela Ward) and Bert Miller (John Slattery) had in mind for her, and they push her to acclimate to their life at the country club, even setting up a date with Bert’s boss’s son, James. When James puts some unwanted moves on Katey, Javier comes to her rescue, and is consequentially fired from his job for fraternizing with guests. Katey feels guilty for her role in him losing his job, and suggests that they enter a dance competition at the local club, La Rosa Negra. Javier helps Katey apply the ballroom dancing to learning the Cuban style, and they form a bond through their time together. Their relationship is met with opposition from Katy’s parents, but their love and their dancing is set against a background of political unrest in Havana, a factor even more threatening that may keep them apart.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Sufficiently original and engaging to be called merely "Havana Nights" but will no doubt get a boost by the reference to the popular 1987 "Dirty Dancing."

  • 60

    Variety David Rooney

    Superficial but entertaining new pic offers equal parts freshness and kitsch appeal set to a pulsating Latin soundtrack.

  • 30

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    It's one of the rare films for which a blooper reel would be redundant.
