Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Stiles and Thomas supply what this movie needs most: a heartbeat. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: This skin-deep MTV Films production is more about promoting soundtrack sales than social causes. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: For all its dumb cliches it offers the basic appeal of teen movies: the pleasure of watching kids be kids, acting as they do among themselves instead of how parents and teachers expect them to act. – Charles Taylor,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Save the Last Dance 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. – David Germain, Associated Press, Jan 17, 2018
