Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Johnny is departing from the camp for good, he loads his luggage on the red pickup truck and kisses Baby good bye. But instead of departing on the pickup truck, he jumps on his motorbike and leaves, leaving his luggage behind. As they are loading the luggage in the truck, his cousin says "I'll drive down on Saturday" obviously meaning that he will deliver the luggage to Johnny then. See more »

Just like Dirty Dancing without the dancing and emotion
25 May 2017 | by jsaus63304See all my reviews

First of all, the good. The music was fairly good. If the actors did their own singing, they did a decent job. Also, once you got past the two leads, the actors were pretty good.

The bad was the dancing and connection between the main characters. Unlike the original, you see no emotion between them. The dancing was not even near the original in quality. While the backup dancers were very good, the leads reminded me of the week 4 participants on "Dancing With The Stars". Most of the dancing was shot around the dancing. Few full body dance steps were seen as most shots were upper body shots leaving us to wonder what their feet were doing.

I did like the idea that Baby was watching the stage version and reminiscing about that summer. The ending gave some closure to their future lives.

I have seen the original, the stage version and now the remake. The original is still far and away the best, the stage version a distant second and the remake not worth your time. Neither capture the character development and emotion of the original.
