So, about a month ago I blogged about the remake of Dirty Dancing. I remained a wee bit hopeful a lot a bit skeptical.
Last night and I was watching the tube and realized that it was actually ON at the moment, so I flipped over to it.
It was literally ...THE WORST THING EVER. EVAAAAR!
You can just get the sense of general awfulness from the trailer below...
Granted, I didn't know it was a "re-imagining," so I didn't expect there to be A LOT OF ADDED songs, additional story lines that didn't add to the story at all, AND we would find out what happened to Johnny and Baby at the end, but I was still not okay with this remake at all.
The moment I was DONE was when they remade Patrick Swayze's "She's Like The Wind" and put a house beat under it. FOR SHAME, ABC! FOR. SHAME.
Overall, I don't think it went over well with anyone.
I was live tweeting it, and all I did was retweet what everyone else was saying because they took the words right out of my mouth.
Check out my favorite tweets about the Dirty Dancing remake below.
And in case you want a play by play of this offensive attempt at remaking a classic...Rolling Stone has you covered here.
