Quotes

Javier Suarez: We were having dinner, and there was a knock on the door. Suddenly two policemen were taking my father away. The traitor could've been anyone. Batista has his spies everywhere. That's the thing, you know? My father never hurt anybody. He was just a free thinker. Someone didn't like his thoughts. We had a funeral, but we never found his body. Carlos disappeared for a while, afraid that he would be next. And then this girl shows up with a baby, says it's his, and she cannot afford it, and... ...

I LOVED Dirty Dancing Havana Night's
12 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie! It was really good. Yes it was a chick flick and a teen movie, but it was SO good and romantic! Javier (Luna) was SO hot and good. The way his body moved was amazing! The only reason I rated this movie a 9 was because I didn't like the way it ended. I thought it could have been done a little differently. But I still went out and bought the DVD!! This may sound a little crazy, but almost every night I watch it! If I could learn to dance the way they do...I would pay to learn how to dance so Cuban! It was a really good, adorable, romantic, and dramatic Movie. It had everything and more that I like to see in a movie. Many people say that they didn't like it but, I thought it was awesome.
