"Jack (Andrew McCarthy) is an executive in a financial brokerage firm trying to impress the firm's president, Drew Clayton (Chris Gillett), in hopes of a promotion. However, Jack is dating the fabulously rich and elegant Demi Clayton (Stephanie Mills), who happens to be Drew's daughter. Although Demi's mother Clarisse (Jane Moffat) doesn't necessarily approve of Jack and would prefer her daughter to date a man within their social circle, Jack still plans on proposing. Trying to create the perfect proposal, Jack signs up for dance lessons in preparation for his proposal to Demi at her father's lavish annual Christmas Dance. But when sparks start to fly between Jack and his dance instructor, Christine (Michelle Nolden), Jack will have to make some important decisions before it is too late."
Fans of Andrew McCarthy will love seeing him dance in this family-friendly holiday film from Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment, Come Dance with Me. I recently had the opportunity to view this movie, and enjoyed it very much. I ended up watching it with my parents over the weekend, while the girls napped. I grew up watching holiday movies like this with my family, so it was nice to have my parents over to watch a great holiday movie like Come Dance with Me.
While the storyline in this film is predictable, and one you have probably seen a time or two from other Hallmark Channel movies, you can't help but get swept away as Andrew McCarthy's character learns how to dance. Fans of the dancing shows on television will love seeing a Andrew's character, who has two left feet, turn into amazing dancer by the end of the movie, while also falling for his dance instructor. Come on, a holiday movie like this isn't a movie without a little romance. :-)
Overall, I have to say that this was a good movie. My dad, sat through it, but wished it wasn't so predictable. But, I find that with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, when it comes time to sit and watch movies like these, I don't want to have to think or follow along intently to understand the plot line. Once the credits start to roll on this movie, you can't help but smile, knowing that you watched a great movie that helped get you into the holiday spirit.
