Dirty Dancing

Critics Consensus

Clever casting can't save Dirty Dancing, a hollow remake that trips over its own good intentions.

  • 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.

    May 24, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 24, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.
