The Internet Doesn't Love ABC's 'Dirty Dancing' - See the Tweets

Are you watching the Dirty Dancing remake right now on ABC?

The special three-hour filmed musical event features the story from the 1987 film told from a fresh perspective, diving deeper into the iconic characters, and tackling social themes like race, women’s rights and the socio-economic division in the country at that time.

Viewers took to social media to share their thoughts on the acting, music, and some of the changes that were made.

The feedback was less than stellar, but the original was so beloved that we’re not sure it ever had a chance…

    Who actually thought it would be good? It’s a remake.

    Nobody ever likes any remakes especially ones made from classic movies. They probably expected this and that is why they got B actresses like Abigail Breslin and Sarah Hyland.

    This wasn’t a remake it was cancer on TV, I would rather go to an ariana Grande concert.

    They turned it into a weird & trashy social justice sermon…like if the cast of HBO’s Girls remade The Wizard of Oz.

    I didn’t Think it was that bad. True they are no Patrick swayze or Jennifer gray but the remakes usually fall short of the originals look at foot loose original by far beats new one but new one is good in its on way besides this is a musical so its different from the original. How many of you liked Carrie Underwood s version of the sound of music? Personally I thought it stunk. Now I love the original sound of music with Julie Andrews so it’s all personal opinion I know and this is my opinion I liked it !!!!!!!!!

    Why does “Baby” have to be so dumpy? I can’t imagine Johnny can lift her.

    So you would rather get blown up and die then watch this remake? Ouch!

  • Mary Beth Hallahan

    I started out watching it with an open mind as well as knowing from interviews that some things were changed. I actually found it entertaining and enjoyed it. Don’t get me wrong, the original Dirty Dancing will always be a beloved iconic movie and Patrick Swayze is pure perfection, but this tv version was entertaining and fun to watch. I also enjoyed some of the characters’ backstory revealed in this tv version.

    The casting director is responsible for that, that person insisted on the actors, who are, by the way, great separately, but together that’s a mess.
