I liked this movie. It's a (german) TV production, so no high expectations it's a spoof about about one of my favorite movies even less expectations... but they got it right. Great cast, witty screenplay, lot of (dark) humor. Haven't laughed so much for a while... And such lovely attention to details from the original "Dirty Dancing" movie (characters, dialogs and most of all: the choreography), so it's actually more homage than parody. Jeanette Biedermann is a great choice for the role of Dörte/Baby (I have never been a fan of hers until now, but boy, she is talented!) and the rest of the characters were really well casted, too. The original soundtrack does the rest. Of course there are many things to criticize: Some of the characters were way to overplayed, some jokes really dumb and the location... Well, in the end "Dörte's Dancing" is an entertaining, funny and charming movie. If you love "Dirty Dancing" watch this movie. And if you hate "Dirty Dancing" you should really watch this movie!
