Decent, but superfluous
7 February 2016 | by gjwSee all my reviews

It wasn't bad, but it simply had no real reason to exist.

They stuck so close to the original movie that it was a virtual frame-by-frame clone, yet the performers suffered by comparison to the original cast.

(Let's face it, the leads were no John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John,)

So what's the point of remaking it, if you can't do it better, or at least do something original with the concept?

I appreciate the talent and enthusiasm of the dancers, and the fact that they (supposedly) pulled this off live in front of the cameras. But in the end, it was simply unnecessary.
