The Dirty Dancing reconstitute was a flop: is anyone surprised?

Add this to a “If it ain’t broke, don’t repair it” file. ABC’s semi-musical remake of a 80s favorite Dirty Dancing, that aired Wednesday night, was savaged by critics and fans of a strange movie, who were some-more than happy to let their feelings about a 3-hour televised woe event be famous on amicable media.

ABC’s initial (and hopefully last) incursion into a televised low-pitched genre transposed Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze with Abigail Breslin and Cole Prattes, padded a strange story with unnecessary tract lines and tacked on an finale that had viewers throwing things during their televisions. And, in between that, there was only so most nope.

As for a vicious reception, Entertainment Weekly pronounced a plan “has managed to surgically remove a sorcery — withdrawal a story and signature lines total while suctioning out all a subtlety, charm, and lead chemistry that tangible a iconic 1987 original.” Their examination went on to indicate out a apparent miss of on-screen hiss between Cole and Abigail, observant that “potatoes have some-more passionate daunt than these two.” Vulture also forked out a actors’ miss of chemistry, saying, “Nobody’s got inspired eyes in this thing. At best, their eyes are saying, ‘Eh, we don’t know. we theory we could have a snack.’” Vulture, however, did find one saving thing about a movie:

One thing zodiacally reviled by both critics and viewers was a ending, where (SPOILER ALERT) we learn that Baby and Johnny don’t finish adult together – a similarity to a finale of La La Land was not mislaid on anyone.

If a reviewers were not kind, viewers did not reason behind during all. On Wednesday night, a tweets and memes began to seem on amicable media in droves. All we can contend is ouch. Here are some of my personal favorites:

I have never dark a fact that we am an certified low-pitched museum nerd, though these televised low-pitched events are not floating adult my skirt. we had a feeling this was going to be a sight mutilate when it was announced. For each The Wiz Live and Hairspray there seems to be a Sound of Music Live or a Rocky Horror disturbance (which we still destroy to commend as a thing that has ever existed). I’d rather see a good furloughed association of any of these shows over these star-stuffed, mostly stunt-cast disasters. we feel bad for all concerned with Dirty Dancing, though hopefully a networks might start to learn a doctrine here.
