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 »


The story took place during the summer of 1963. In this version, a young guitarist is playing Bob Dylan's "Don't think twice, it's all right", which was released on Dylan's album "Freewheelin" in May of 1963, making it less than likely that the young man would have heard it yet, never mind recreating a polished performance of the song.

Awful dancing not just dirty
24 May 2017 | by blades_n_stoneSee all my reviews

Take all the charm,romance, chemistry and fun of the 1980s summer loving flick. Now toss it in a rock timber until all that great stuff is ground off in an abrasive mess of modern musical, ham handed choreography, bad hair cuts, worse costuming and back ground actors that are better looking than the main cast and you have dirty dancing 2017. This movie could not decide what it was. Romance? Kind of but not really. Caution tale? Well it draws on the moral delima of affairs but keeps them coming. Musical? If you like musicals with lots of dialog and a dinner theatre soundtrack. Remake? In the modern tradition absolutely. As they took what worked and removed it to make something else with the same name. I think it's a horror film. It's cheesy, has bad acting, a low budget with old name actors looking for a payday, stormy nights and a lurking ancient evil. That evil being the demon of remakes feeding on the souls of the cast. Honestly every person involved in this film should give everyone who watched it 5 dollars and a written apology.
