    Luna and Garai struggle to look like they're having the time of their life. But the movie, more wan than wicked, proves you can't go home again. show more

    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    Swayze's presence crosses the line from curious to bizarre and adds a heavy layer of cheese to Havana Nights. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    It's disappointing the film is so sketchy and underdeveloped. The filmmakers may have sold their story short. show more

    The plot of "Nights" will occupy only 10 or 12 brain cells. show more
