  Who demanded an unrelated prequel to 1987's "Dirty Dancing," the popular coming-of-age movie set at a Catskills resort during the summer of '63? The viewing public? Patrick Swayze, star of the original? Creativity-challenged studio execs? Whoever's culpable, the dirty deed was done, poorly. "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" is a warped reality, with a brief turn by Swayze in the same role he played in "Dirty Dancing," and a snatch of the "Dirty Dancing" theme "The Time of My Life" on Spanish guitar. In "Havana Nights," shy, studious teen Katey (Romola Garai) moves with her family to Cuba when her father's boss transfers him there. It's 1958, and unbeknownst to blinkered, well-to-do Yanquis, the country is on the verge of revolution. Katey, belittled by her peers, wants nothing to do with the judgmental expatriates. Instead, she's smitten with local boy Xavier (Diego Luna of "Y Tu Mamá También"), a lowly hotel waiter. Xavier is a great dancer who brings out Katey's terpsichorean talent. Although the wallflower blooms to a Latin beat, Xavier's mother and rebel brother and the bigots in Katey's world don't approve of the kids' union. The young leads have appeal, but the script is a groaner, the music is glaringly anachronistic, and Swayze's character, supposedly five years younger than in "Dirty Dancing," looks 15 years older.
