Did You Know?


Jennifer Grey, who starred as Baby in Dirty Dancing (1987), turned down a role in this remake of the original film. When asked her reasons for declining, Grey said: "I was asked to do something on that show and I was flattered because I always want to be asked because it's nice to want to be included. But for me, it would be sacrosanct for me to do it because it didn't feel appropriate to me. It feels like if you're going to do your own thing, do your own thing. I wouldn't say [what role was offered] but I will tell you, it wasn't Baby!" See more »


When the Houseman's are driving to the resort at the beginning of the movie the gear selector is approximately the 1:30 position. This would reflect it's in the Park position. The Drive position would be approximately the 3:00 position. See more »

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but.....
24 May 2017 | by weavermoviesSee all my reviews

Time is infinite, with any generational reference simply a personal recollection..... overlapping and intertwining..... as each new life takes its first breath, along with each departing life offering its last, and somewhere in between those parameters, we all live.

As each sunset marks larger segments of our chronology, there is a never ending tendency to reminisce about the "good ole days", when in reality, what we experience now in the present will be the current, more youthful generation's "it's sure not like it used to be" reference when making similar future comparisons.

Now, from my own emotional perspective, although I can't possibly imagine how anything or anyone appearing in a remake presented on modern day television can compare to a movie like the original "Dirty Dancing" of thirty years ago, I can only hope as they watch this attempt, today's viewers will form those same fond irreplaceable memories I did, so during their later years, they can look back, take pause and smile as I do now in retrospect.

However, if I may borrow from that great American Patriot, Archie Bunker.....

"Those were the days!"

And with all due respect to those involved in tonight's presentation, as "nobody puts Baby in a corner", no one should have ever presented what was shown on screen this evening.
