Wayne Blair and Jessica Sharzer's remake attempts to be all things to all people, and ends up being nothing to anybody.

ABC'S Dirty Dancing remake fits snugly in a box, adding just enough appealing wrinkles to its predecessor's familiar moves to provide, if not the time of your life, for what it is a pretty enjoyable few hours.

Somehow, this earnest, anodyne remake has managed to surgically extract the magic -- leaving the story and signature lines intact while suctioning out all the subtlety, charm, and lead chemistry that defined the iconic 1987 original.

The film tries to make a star out of [Colt Prattes], and if that doesn't quite happen, it nevertheless succeeds at showing the hidden talents of some of the medium's most durable stars.

In summary, the new Dirty Dancing is disappointing and a bit all over the place. But its biggest sin is that it's bloated and boring.
