Save the Last Dance was full of promise. Attractive White female forced to attend school and make new friends (and lovers) in the Chicago Ghetto. Full of promise. Why were we not allowed to see more of the relationship with the mother? They fought, she died. We get one scene of a gift. The movie started the tension between the father and daughter but didn't follow it. Why did he leave in the first place? We are never told. Him rejecting the boyfriend would have been a predictable but entertaining story line. And as for racism? They "dance" around the topic and then are hailed for tackling it. No Character development, shoddy plot line. If you are into dance, you'll like it the first time. Don't expect an earth shattering experience.
