We gave it a C

”Shall We Dance?” is a summer movie we can’t wait to see

RELEASE DATE Aug. 6

WHY WE CAN’T WAIT ”Chicago” hoofer Richard Gere and former Fly Girl Jennifer Lopez (pictured) tearing it up on the dance floor? This we gotta see.

THE PREMISE Gere is a Windy City lawyer who believes that dance instructor J. Lo has the answer to his midlife crisis. (This is Gere’s third time playing a Chicago attorney — after ”Chicago” and ”Primal Fear.”)

SOURCE Japanese director Masayuki Suo’s international 1996 hit comedy of the same name

BURNING QUESTION Can Gere’s current career heat overcome Lopez’s post-”Gigli” chill?

COME FOR The steamy late-night tango session between the two stars

STAY FOR The inspirational transformation of Lopez’s dance class (including (”The Station Agent”’s Bobby Cannavale, Lisa Ann Walter, and Stanley Tucci) into serious ballroom competitors.
