Chicago Tribune
A pelvis-gyrating, ponytail-releasing, shirt-unbuttoning good time.
Chicago Sun-Times
[Garai and Luna] must be given credit for their presence and charisma in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, and together with the film's general ambiance, they do a lot to make amends for the lockstep plot.
Entertainment Weekly
There are two sparks of light amid the trifling dialogue and bad faux-'80s love-on-the-beach montages in Havana Nights, and they are the film's costars.
Luna and Garai struggle to look like they're having the time of their life. But the movie, more wan than wicked, proves you can't go home again.
San Francisco Chronicle
Swayze's presence crosses the line from curious to bizarre and adds a heavy layer of cheese to Havana Nights.
Bland though it is, "Havana Nights" could be the start of a globe-bettering franchise -- and across history, too: "Dirty Dancing: Monticello Mornings"; "Dirty Dancing: Gaza Strip Afternoons."
It's only possible to have the time of your life once, and, for this franchise, that was in 1987.
Charlotte Observer
The plot of "Nights" will occupy only 10 or 12 brain cells.
The Hollywood Reporter
It's disappointing the film is so sketchy and underdeveloped. The filmmakers may have sold their story short.
If you can't find a more scintillating brand of dirty to enjoy during your own nights (Helena or Hoboken), you're not trying very hard.
New York Daily News
Has some good music and hot dancing -- filmed choppily -- but it completely lacks the magic of its predecessor.
