Nobody puts Baby in a corner. Everybody knows that. But apparently it’s totally fine to murder Baby, bury her in a shallow hole, resurrect her, kill her and bury her all over again, and then spit on her desecrated zombie grave, because they’re making a Dirty Dancing remake. No, not another shitty sequel, a remake of the beloved original.
The sacrilege, also known as the remake, will be directed by Kenny Ortega, a guy who also directed a couple of High School Musicals. Other credits of his include directing This Is It, the Michael Jackson documentary, and backing out of directing that horrendous Footloose remake. And what’s more, he was the one who choreographed the original Dirty Dancing. So it can’t be ALL bad, can it?
Oh wait, it definitely can. It can be all bad with a side of horrible and a dash of traumatic. Without the eternally glorious Patrick Swayze and the beautiful Jennifer Grey, what is Dirty Dancing? Do you think for one second that I’m going to sit there and watch Zac Efron charmingly tickle Lea Michele‘s arm? Because I won’t.
Would you watch this monstrosity? And, even better, who do you think would get the legendary roles?
