TV reboots of classic movies can stress the soul.
It can only go two ways: hold its own and kill or totally flop. Carrie Underwood in the Sound of Music LIVE was a nah for me. But I loved Grease LIVE with Julianne Hough and others who know how to sing AND act in live theatre.
I try not to judge before seeing it but the casting is making my eye twitch out of frustration. Abigail Breslin stars as Baby and some guy-who-doesn't-have-half-Patrick-Swayze's-sex-appeal plays Johnny. Abigail is a super talented actor but is this reeeeeally the best role to showcase her talent? To me, nope.
Watch the promo above then watch the Dirty Dancing reboot Wdnesday, May 24 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
FYI I MISS PATRICK SWAYZE SO MUCH.
