Critic Reviews of "Take The Lead"Time OutMay 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 & RoeperApril 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.Salon.comApril 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 TodayApril 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 StarApril 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 TimesApril 07, 2006
A predictable and yet thoroughly enjoyable drama about the redemptive power of dance for a group of inner-city teenagers.San Francisco PostJune 16, 2007
Lean on Me meets Strictly Ballroom. Tough two-step replaces tough love.CinematicalApril 08, 2007
Feels like a product, with decisions made for audience appeal rather than creativity.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
For the most part, Liz Friedlander's direction and frenetic pacing mitigate any real performance opportunities.Christianity TodayNovember 02, 2006
A fun romp of a flick that showcases the power of dance and the human spirit.eFilmCritic.comJune 11, 2006
The poster says 'Never follow', while the movie itslef follows every cliche in the book.Urban CinefileMay 13, 2006
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
