Trivia

Keenan Kampa, a trained ballerina, was the first choice for the role of Ruby, but when Michael and Janeen Damian contact her and ask her if she had any interest in acting, she was recovering in a hospital from a hip surgery. She had to do three sessions of rehab a day, to get back into ballet shape. See more »

Quotes

Johnnie: [Dancing tango] Yes, I've been humble since our last meeting which I want to apologize for.
Ruby: You don't have to do that; I was being pushy, when I don't even know you.
Johnnie: [Pulls her close] Do you want to?

It delivers the fun anyway.
22 September 2016 | by gorkem-birSee all my reviews

There is obviously a lack of emphasis here. However, it is one of those fast paced movies and the producers also aware of the fact that the movie could easily be reputed as such a cliché. So they don't give hard time to the audience and directly delivers the story. Most of the time I enjoyed it, and recommend everyone who isn't only the fan of the unique, must seen movies.

We have got to know that not every movie is made to become a masterpiece.Besides, critical minds can easily detect the flaws and decide not to see the whole of it by watching the trailer.

Those who want to get some good vibes from a cheesy movie. Don't miss it.
