review of "Shall We Dance"

< quote >
"Shall We Dance?", an American remake of the sweet 1996 Japanese film of the same name, is an ill-fated attempt to translate a wonderful foreign-language film for American audiences -- and it falls apart on its own, too.

The original WAS really good. I will never understand the fascination with remaking good movies (and making them bad).

I simply hate how most everything is redone, downgraded, simplified, etc for US release... (movies, cars, any product really)
