Essentially a redress of Top Hat with ballet plugged into the plot contrivance and George and Ira Gershwin in place of Irving Berlin, Shall We Dance comes so close to recreating the delicate perfection of prior pairings that it’s frustrating when it falls just short.

View all Shall We Dance reviews
A ballet dancer and a showgirl fake their marriage for publicity purposes before falling in love for real in this delightful musical comedy starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Among the well-known songs in George and Ira Gershwin’s score are “Slap That Bass,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “They All Laughed,” and “Let's Call the Whole Thing Off,” which features Fred and Ginger in a showstopper dance sequence on roller skates.

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary 2024 (127 movies items)

"13.3. 2024 A ballet dancer and a showgirl spend rumours about being married in order to gain easy publicity. "Shall We Dance" is a very typical, shallow musical for its era: almost everyone is happy all the time, all the problems are solved easily without any true challenges, and the shiny floors and the dance numbers are playing bigger part than the irrelevant and thin plot.

Shall We Dance

“Essentially a redress of Top Hat with ballet plugged into the plot contrivance and George and Ira Gershwin in place of Irving Berlin, Shall We Dance comes so close to recreating the delicate perfection of prior pairings that it’s frustrating when it falls just short. The major problem is that a bit of Shall We Dance feels stiff kneed when trying to go for a rat-a-tat-tat routine. It just seems like there’s almost too much here that the escapist dilettante nature of their best pairings feels a bit too overburdened.   Something like the Russian ballet feels too highbrow for the bubble delicate world of Fred and Ginger. They’re best in parts where they’re either recognizably in an approximation of the real world, or in complete glitterati mode where their concerns and bank accounts” read more
