John Clark (Richard Gere) is a meek workaholic who feels trapped in a dull, mind-numbing existence. But one night, his whole life changes when the sight of a beautiful dance instructor (Jennifer Lopez) inspires him to break out of his mold and sign up for ballroom dancing lessons. Now, he'll have to step lightly – and do some fancy footwork – if he expects to keep his exciting new passion a secret from his family and friends.
In Shall We Dance, Richard Gere plays a bored accountant who's so struck by the sight of a beautiful dance instructor, Jennifer Lopez, he decides to sign up for ballroom dancing lessons. He keeps this a secret from his wife, Susan Sarandon, and re-discovers a new zest for life. Unfortunately this remake of the 1996 Japanese film is so wooden in its direction and acting, it's amazing the cast can walk let alone dance.
