Dirty Dancing Reviews

June 27, 2017
The craziest thing about this, let's face it, completely unnecessary and vastly inferior imposter of a film, is the ending.

Wayne Blair and Jessica Sharzer's remake attempts to be all things to all people, and ends up being nothing to anybody.

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.

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.

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.

It's less the time of your life and more three hours you'll never get back.

The new Dirty Dancing, cast with an eye toward diversity, ends up being neither disastrous or necessary.

Getting the sociopolitical context so wrong might approach being forgivable if the central romance between Baby and Johnny weren't also botched.

I think Breslin is perfectly engaged with a different take on the character, it just happens that nobody else in this new Dirty Dancing has been told to change the story around her.

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.

No matter how badly you sing, you can't be as tone deaf as this movie.

ABC's remake of the 1987 romantic drama Dirty Dancing is, well...not good. If it were a Taco Bell sauce packet or a chicken wing flavor, it would be mild. Nobody wants to watch a movie called Mild Dancing.

Dirty Dancing on ABC is a sappy, passionless, schlocky remake of the original, without even the iota of imagination necessary to expand upon the 1987 film.

The original Dirty Dancing was no paragon of cinematic excellence, but boy, does it look like Swan Lake next to The Hokey Pokey that is ABC's remake of the 1987 film.

Dirty Dancing never quite feels like a fully realized film. It's too much of a copy cat and, honestly, it's like getting a torn up hand-me-down in comparison to the original.
