I think ABC’s Dirty Dancing remake just put the nail in the remake coffin.
Trying to turn an unknown actor and Abigail Breslin into Baby and Johnny was about as likely to work as my husband and I trying to do the lift.
No chance. Zero, zip, zilch, none.
Twitter agrees with me.
Forget Baby. I put myself in a corner, rocking and crying. #Dirtydancing

#DirtyDancing The local weather just barged in with a severe storm warning and I'm enjoying it more than this remake.

Netflix and Amazon Prime must be getting bombarded with searches for the original #DirtyDancing to cleanse everyone's soul of this disaster

They should have remade Ghost, where Patrick Swayze haunts Whoopi Goldberg to stop the foolish remake of #DirtyDancing

If ABC was smart, they'd run the original #DirtyDancing the next three nights in primetime without commercials, as penance for their crimes.

If they can cancel shows mid-season, can they cancel movies halfway though too?! This is atrocious. 🙈 #DirtyDancing
