The music could be better, the story could be better, the dancing could be better and the casting could be better.

Garai is lovely and sensitive, but Luna ... sparks their relationship with a radiant personality and a killer smile when they dance.
February 26, 2004
The film's chief problem is that Garai and Luna lack the sparks of Grey and Swayze.

Sticks to the formula.
February 26, 2004
Both the dance numbers and the personal drama are largely listless.
February 26, 2004
Fritters away its dramatic punch with unrealized characters and a lackluster ending.
February 26, 2004
This reimagining of the recklessly melodramatic 1987 original is packed with flashy, taffeta silliness.

If you can't find a more scintillating brand of dirty to enjoy during your own nights (Helena or Hoboken), you're not trying very hard.

The movie, more wan than wicked, proves you can't go home again.

Although the first movie was appealing but silly, the remake (and that's all it is, the plot is basically the same) is largely pointless.
February 26, 2004
The original movie had shallow, stereotypical characters, a corny, predictable story and lots of high-energy dancing. The same goes for the sequel, although the characters are even a little shallower and the story a little cornier.

This homage-prequel wears both its heart and its self-awareness on its leotards, with such eagerness to please that it ultimately stumbles over itself trying to duplicate the original's rough magic.

[Luna] deserves a better co-star than Garai ... and a script that's more than a recycled 1950s programmer about star-crossed lovers from the wrong sides of the tracks.
February 26, 2004
Maybe I'm just a pushover. But I loved every corny, predictable minute of this sugary remake. It's called entertainment.
February 26, 2004
Nobody puts baby in the corner in the 1987 picture and nobody needs to put this baby on their to-see list.

At this rate, I only hope we're spared Dirty Dancing 3: Bosnia Bop.

Es mucho fro -- the only titter of excitement comes in a cameo from a strangely reptilian Patrick Swayze.

It's only possible to have the time of your life once, and, for this franchise, that was in 1987.
