Critic Reviews of "Save the Last Dance"Time OutJune 24, 2006
As teen melodrama, well, Carter's film is what it is; but for such a mainstream black-consciousness movie, at least it doesn't shy from addressing some touchy issues about masculinity, parenthood, and black attitudes to whites.Globe and MailMarch 22, 2002
A refreshingly friendly view of a romance between people of different pigmentation, an area where more respectable pictures still wimp out.Rolling StoneFebruary 06, 2001
Stiles and Thomas supply what this movie needs most: a heartbeat.Detroit NewsJanuary 12, 2001
It pays knowing respect not only to high school social politics, but also to racial politics among today's young people.Denver PostJanuary 12, 2001
The intent is a feel-good film, sort of an American version of Billy Elliot and I didn't believe a minute of it.Associated PressJanuary 12, 2001
Squanders nice performances by Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas by confining them and the supporting cast to cookie-cutter roles and hackneyed inner-city subplots.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Formulaic teen romance with an MTV spin.Film ThreatDecember 06, 2005
Performances throughout are solidly decent.TheMovieReport.comDecember 06, 2005
Ultimately, this talented twosome [Stiles and Thomas] can only do so much with a script that continually lets them down at about every turn.Film BlatherMay 22, 2003
It's not courageous enough to deviate from the teen movie formula more than a smidgeon.Palo Alto WeeklyMay 20, 2003
Sara's got a sense of humor about how very uncool she is, and she proves to be a game girl.Austin ChronicleMarch 10, 2003
To the film's credit, it tries, and while it never really sings, it does deliver the dance.
