Booooooring!

"Sweet Hearts Dance" is about a two couples...one married, one not. Beyond that there's little worth mentioning. Although the film sports a good cast and is an okay production, it is a movie in need of a story as it wanders from chapter to chapter exploring the vicissitudes of a quartet of people who are probably much less interesting that yourself. In a word....boring.
