Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Shall We Dance?

Not the worst American remake of a foreign film I've ever seen; and there are one or two small things I like about it in contrast to the Japanese (including a gay character for instance), but seeing this one really puts into perspective just how much social context mattered to making the original work. And it's evident that this movie doesn't LOVE dance like the original did. It is flawed in the same way, however.
