Do you bring a watermelon to every party you attend and know full well that nobody puts Baby in a corner? Well, you just might be a "Dirty Dancing" fan. So what do you think about the news this week that a remake is in the offing?
From my perspective, the only saving grace to this project is the fact that original choreographer Kenny Ortega is slated to direct. Steve Spears at Stuck in the '80s and Jen Chaney at the Washington Post's Cebritology blog have a few ideas on the subject. Jen posted a poll asking what her readers think, and the last time I checked, 86 percent of respondents said it was "the worst idea I've ever heard."
Although, the remake's got its supporters, too. Original Baby Jennifer Grey said in the Wall Street Journal that she's "excited" about it.
What do you think? Does this thing have legs?
