I wanted to write this because after having watched it I felt super bad about how people reacted. I believe that the show was very badly advertised and that is one of the reasons it failed. However, having watched it I can't really sit quietly and not add my thoughts. And guess what, it is in this series because Dirty Dancing has been made into a musical and this movie basically adapted the musical, not the movie... see why it was badly advertised?
The summer that changed Baby's life. Her family went to the Kellerman Lodge for the last three weeks of summer to wind off a bit. Baby gets involved with a dancer, Johnny Castle, while her sister befriends an African-American boy, and their parents have to face up to the fact that their lives are not the way it used to be.
Elvis Presley impersonator and I don't blame the actor for that, but the make-up department. I liked it, because I took it as a mash-up of the highly successful musical and a summer romance movie that everyone loved. Are there weird moments? Sure. Is calling it an utter shit correct? Far from it!
Watch it? I don't think it will make any difference at this point, but if you do just keep an open mind! This is a different story, and there was instances that are much better. No cheating, for example. I liked that. Some characters could have gotten punched though, I missed that. But these are small details that can be picked on but do not make the remake that bad!
Until the next item on my list!
