The Dirty Dancing Reboot Aired and Fans Were NOT Impressed
If you’ve been online recently, you may have noticed the less-than-stellar reviews of ABC’s Dirty Dancing remake. Starring Abigail Breslin in the #iconic role of Baby and newcomer Colt Prattes as Johnny, the made-for-TV reboot aired Wednesday night only to accumulate mostly poor reviews.
It received a 13-per-cent-fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes (to no one’s surprise), and fans of the original took to Twitter to share their hilarious reactions to the new musical.
Many were unimpressed with the dance sequence that made Dirty Dancing so memorable to begin with.

Others questioned the changes made to the classic ’80s soundtrack.

Generally, there was just a lot of shade being thrown around.
Imagine THIS being the dancing in your televised musical that has dancing in the title #DirtyDancing pic.twitter.com/k7pksI7cgL

Even if the movie wasn’t all that entertaining, you can always count on Twitter for a good laugh. Better luck next time, ABC.
