Wayne Blair and Jessica Sharzer's remake attempts to be all things to all people, and ends up being nothing to anybody.
ABC'S Dirty Dancing remake fits snugly in a box, adding just enough appealing wrinkles to its predecessor's familiar moves to provide, if not the time of your life, for what it is a pretty enjoyable few hours.
Somehow, this earnest, anodyne remake has managed to surgically extract the magic -- leaving the story and signature lines intact while suctioning out all the subtlety, charm, and lead chemistry that defined the iconic 1987 original.
The film tries to make a star out of [Colt Prattes], and if that doesn't quite happen, it nevertheless succeeds at showing the hidden talents of some of the medium's most durable stars.
In summary, the new Dirty Dancing is disappointing and a bit all over the place. But its biggest sin is that it's bloated and boring.
Nope. Really, nope. Just - don't. We've seen it, and between the bad lip-syncing, the inexplicable addition of musical numbers, and the pale imitation of classic moments from the original film, it just doesn't work.
The craziest thing about this, let's face it, completely unnecessary and vastly inferior imposter of a film, is the ending.
Dirty Dancing is 30 years old. To celebrate, ABC has decided to stomp all over your memories of the beloved film.
A god awful and ill conceived version of the eighties classic.
This new Dirty Dancing is an energetic way to get ready for summer in a way that will have you tapping your toes, and it brings all the swirling skirts and thrusting hips that we could have hoped for out of a TV special.
Remake can't recapture original magic, but still entertains.
Casting alone isn't enough to redeem it, and unless viewers plan to do some 21st century tweeting while hate-watching, Dirty Dancing doesn't have enough swing in the modern era to make it mean a thing.
