Dirty Dancing is definitely in my top 5 favorite movies. While most people think "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" or "I carried a watermelon," are the best lines in the film, there are so many more for die hard dirty dancers.
"I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you."
"God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em!"
I could go on and on.
Anyway, since I'm a big fan of this movie, I'm pretty hesitant to say I'm excited for a remake...however, that's not going to stop a remake from happening.
Abigail Breslin is taking on the role of Baby Houseman while Colt Prattes is playing Johnny Castle. I just want to state for the record that NOBODY is ever going to replace Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle.
This time it's a TV remake coming to ABC on May 24th...I'll guess we'll have to see if the remake lives up to the original.
In the meantime, I do have to give credit where credit is due, judging just from the poster, Abigail Breslin makes a pretty good Baby.
