Seriously, Hollywood?

Last week I saw the most offensive news:


If Jennifer Grey isn't Baby...
via
And Patrick Swayze isn't Johnny...
via
It's not Dirty Dancing.
via
As a Ultimate Collector's Edition DVD & Soundtrack owner...
And a Dirty Dancing lover...
I will be boycotting this movie.

And let's make this clear...
If you watch it, we can't be friends.
Yep.  That was an ultimatum.

Don't even get me started on Havana Nights.

Rant over.

I am really upset about this too. I can just imagine how hoochie mama-ish they will make the new one (just like the new Footloose). I loved Penny in the original.

Selina. said...

didn't they already do a re make? or like a sequel?

Corey @ Learning Patience said...

I totally agree...it won't be the same. Why can't they come up with new movie ideas? They keep remaking old ones...c'mon! I'm having a fun giveaway starting today...hop on over! xoxo from Trinidad

Denise said...

I would have to agree. I've never seen Havana Nights and never intend to, doubt I'd watch a remake either- what are they thinking!!!

Ashleigh said...

I agree! Especially the fact that Patrick Swayze cannot be replaced... would just be too sad.

star said...

I never even watched the original, so I wont be watching the sequel either!

Anna said...

I feel the same way. Unbelievable. I didn't even watch the "sequel." And word on the street is that Miley is going to be Baby. Ew. Seriously? This is going to be the year of awful remakes.

Ashley said...

Cannot even tell you how upset I am that they are remaking this. I refused to watch the sequel, and there is NO WAY I'm watching a remake. You can't mess with such a great movie!

Domesticated-Bliss said...

Agree x infinity! I am a HUGE DD lover and I cannot believe they are attempting to remake this movie. It's blasphemy I tell you!

[SMASH] said...

Sad to see they are remaking it!

Krystal said...

I totally loved the Havana Nights soundtrack though and DIEGO LUNA is a hottie and was in the movie. Hot. Though they shouldn't have sequeled it....

Meg O. said...

Amen sistah!!! This is blasphemy!!!!!!

Erika Lauren said...

Please tell me this is a joke! Dirty Dancing IS what it is because of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze!

Kaitlin Godfrey said...

AMEN. This is outrageous.

Life With Lauren said...

I agree! It should just be left alone if anything bring the original back to the theaters to show the next generation!!!

tessica said...

AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN!

Love this post and I completely agree with you!! I *hate* remakes and Dirty Dancing is one of my top favorite movies!

ashley.warner said...

Camille said...

UGHHHHHHH! This is so stupid. I didn't even watch the sequel just like I didn't watch the sequel to Grease. Yuck yuck yuck. >:O

Miss Chelsea said...

I will boycott it!

Lyndsay said...

I know. There are just some movies you don't remake. I don't plan on watching it when it comes out.

Rebekah said...

I'm NOT happy with these movies being remade. So not cool!

Wiz said...

This my favorite movie EVER!!! I am sure the remake will be a flop. You just cant compare to the original.

Katie said...

I hate remakes. Just saw the trailer for Footloose, and I wanted to throw something at the screen. Can't they come up with new movie ideas?? Why do they have to remake old ones?

Amber said...

I hate this too. So we can still be friends. You're not to worry!

Megan said...

definitely agree!! When will Hollywood learn that stuff like this just doesn't work!

Savanah said...

yes, seriously??? Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite movies and I refuse to see a new one to ruin it for me!

Lil' Woman said...

AMEN!!!!
I will not let some f-list actor taint my mind of my beloved Dirty Dancing!

There's is only one Johnny, Baby, and Kellerman's. And Havana Nights, didn't even waste my time..ugh.

Michelle said...

I feel your pain. Seriously. STOP BUTCHERING OUR MOVIES HOLLYWOOD.

Meghan said...

Hahahahaha. I'm glad I'm not the only one who owns the soundtrack!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I agree- I will definitely not be watching this re-make. I can't imagine Hollywood running out of NEW movie ideas for the amount they get paid...

Kristine said...

agreed. people need to know when to leave something good alone.

Sienna said...

Michelle said...

Umm yeah, this remake better not happen!

Kristin said...

Why do they have to mess with our childhood?
