Why The 'Dirty Dancing' Remake Is Dirty
ABC has released its remake of the classic movie, “Dirty Dancing” and has caught the attention of many. However, it was not the kind of attention they were vying for after disappointed viewers took to social media to vent out about it.
ABC Releases 'Dirty Dancing' Remake
The “Dirty Dancing” film remake was just aired by ABC on May 24. It starred Abigail Breslin and Colt Prattes, who took on the iconic roles of Baby Houseman and Johnny Castle, respectively. ABC announced the remake a few months ago with the release of its official poster and trailer. The movie is also backed up with a star-studded cast that includes Debra Messing, Bruce Greenwood, and former Pussycat Dolls member, Nicole Scherzinger.
However, that was not enough to impress the almost seven million viewers that it raked in. After the broadcast of the awaited remake, the movie was met with a majority of negative reviews especially from critics. ABC has announced before that the remake is not a replica of the original but it still borrowed most of the film's iconic scenes.
'Dirty Dancing' Remake Is A Disgrace To The Original
When ABC announced that it was going to release a remake of a classic movie that is loved by millions, no one knew if it was a good thing or a bad thing. However, with its release, viewers have seen that it was a poor imitation of the original, making fans cringe at how horrible it was made. The 1987 film starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey was a romance flick that made dancing both sensual and magical, and that was where the remake failed.
Aside from the numerous subplots, the remake was scorned for not nailing that famous lift scene. It also was trying too hard that it instead of the romantic movie that people expected, it turned out to be a musical. ABC said before that the movie will have a musical side but it was just too much. Countless have voiced out their frustrations towards the “Dirty Dancing” remake and some have even pointed out that there are just some movies that should never be remade.
