Dirty Dancing's lift scene is an essential part of that list. It's a mainstay in pop culture, even today. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone recreated it for Crazy, Stupid, Love. The homage was cute, but there's no way to truly do a Dirty Dancing remake justice. Or is there?
The new Baby and Johnny look faithful to the original. Breslin's sporting big, wavy hair that looks similar to Jennifer Grey's in the 1987 film. And Prattes looks as sensual as Patrick Swayze did on the original poster. (Still, we'll never really see anyone else as the two legendary characters.)
If the new film sparks interest in women's rights among younger viewers, that's not a bad thing. It might inspire important conversations that, in our current political climate, we need to be having. And we're all for that — even if it comes at the expense of disservice to Patrick Swayze's legacy.
