Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor, Johnny Castle, and nothing is ever the same for anyone in the Houseman family. Not only are the memorable songs from the original movie included, but there are additional songs from the era that will be featured, showcasing double the number of musical performances by the stellar cast.
**BAD, BAD, BAD!** (SPOILER) You just can't help but compare this to the original. Johnny is no actor and Baby is no dancer. The lipsync was so noticeble it was annoying. The first scene back at staff quarters it looked like the dirty dancers were ready to jump into an orgy. I don't really care about people's weight, but this Baby was too chunky to be a dancer (you couldn't half tell, much!) Prattes is also stiff and seems to lack confidence. He certainly doesn't have the smoothness and grace of Swayze and his acting was wooden. I really didn't care about the parents marital dramas. This was supposed to be a love story between Johnny and Baby. Why did they completely destroy the last dance scene that was so iconic in the original. And just to add icing to the cake, the final scene, Johnny and Baby do not end up together. I would have liked that to be left up to the imagination as in the original movie. Dirty Dancing didn't need a remake. This is one movie I won't be watching again.
