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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
