  • Critic Reviews of "Take The Lead"

    Time Out
    May 06, 2006

    While their transformation is predictable, it's quietly enjoyable, and the teen angle opens the door to romance and gritty gang-war subplots.

    Ebert & Roeper
    April 10, 2006

    it's just ridiculous, it's just ridiculous. One cliché right after another. Not for one second did I believe any of this.
    April 07, 2006

    While we may be able to pretty much guess everything that's going to happen in Take the Lead, its considerable charm lies in the way it fulfills, rather than bucks, our expectations.

    USA Today
    April 07, 2006

    Think of it as the fictionalized version of last year's engaging documentary Mad Hot Ballroom, with teen dancers and sexier moves. It is also more formulaic and clichéd, thanks to the predictable plot and theme.

    Toronto Star
    April 07, 2006

    Take the Lead is pure entertainment, if only for the endless amusement of watching Banderas spread the gospel of ballroom like he was born wearing a tuxedo.

    Seattle Times
    April 07, 2006

    A predictable and yet thoroughly enjoyable drama about the redemptive power of dance for a group of inner-city teenagers.

    San Francisco Post
    June 16, 2007

    Lean on Me meets Strictly Ballroom. Tough two-step replaces tough love.

    April 08, 2007

    Feels like a product, with decisions made for audience appeal rather than creativity.

    Film Journal International
    March 01, 2007

    For the most part, Liz Friedlander's direction and frenetic pacing mitigate any real performance opportunities.

    Christianity Today
    November 02, 2006

    A fun romp of a flick that showcases the power of dance and the human spirit.
    June 11, 2006

    The poster says 'Never follow', while the movie itslef follows every cliche in the book.

    Urban Cinefile

    A feel-good story using music and dance to guide problem kids onto the straight and narrow.....entertaining, although not the showstopper we might hope for
