An unnecessary remake but not that bad
Probably the worst remake in the history of the remakes! In this movie
"Baby" couldn't dance in the beginning of the movie, nor could she
dance at the end of the movie!! Terrible casting for that part and
others. There was absolutely no chemistry between Baby and Johnny... I
mean none. I truly feel bad for people that were a part of this movie,
it's embarrassing.The only thing this movie accomplished (other than wasting allot of
people's time) was highlight how good the original was.
Just Plain Terrible.
Let's see, who did a good job: NOT Abigail Breslin! She's a good
actress, can cry on demand, but do NOT ask that young woman to dance.
So stiff, no style. In fact, had someone else been chosen for the part
of Baby, I probably would have given it a better rating. Unfortunately,
she pretty much ruined it.
Time is infinite, with any generational reference simply a personal
recollection..... overlapping and intertwining..... as each new life
takes its first breath, along with each departing life offering its
last, and somewhere in between those parameters, we all live.As each sunset marks larger segments of our chronology, there is a
never ending tendency to reminisce about the "good ole days", when in
reality, what we experience now in the present will be the current,
more youthful generation's "it's sure not like it used to be" reference
when making similar future comparisons.Now, from my own emotional perspective, although I can't possibly
imagine how anything or anyone appearing in a remake presented on
modern day television can compare to a movie like the original "Dirty
Dancing" of thirty years ago, I can only hope as they watch this
attempt, today's viewers will form those same fond irreplaceable
memories I did, so during their later years, they can look back, take
pause and smile as I do now in retrospect.However, if I may borrow from that great American Patriot, Archie
Bunker....."Those were the days!"And with all due respect to those involved in tonight's presentation,
as "nobody puts Baby in a corner", no one should have ever presented
what was shown on screen this evening.

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but.....
I'm sorry, I don't know what they were thinking wanting to remake this
movie, because there is no one quite like Patrick Swayze. I mean,
Swayze wasn't super good looking, but he had charisma, swagger and he
was a great dancer. None of the dancing in this rehash is up to par, I'm sorry, but it's
the truth. It's OK dancing, but in the original the dancing was vibrant
and real. The guy playing Johnny is OK, he just doesn't have what Swayze had in
spades. But the casting of baby, yikes, I think it was so wrong. They should
have put Sarah Hyland in that role and see what she could do.The music was as great as before, but again, just buy the original
soundtrack. It's hard to grasp why this is just so painful a rehash / remake, since
it has a great cast. I think it's just one of those cases where the original cast was just
superior and you can imitate it but it just won't work.If you liked this, watch the original and you'll feel the steamy hat
between Swayze and Grey!
