TV preview: ‘‘Dirty Dancing’ is pretty dull

First Published      Last Updated May 19 2017 01:05 am

ABC remade the 1987 movie "Dirty Dancing" (which ran 100 minutes) and scheduled it in a 180-minute time slot. Abigail Breslin (as Baby) and Colt Prattes (Johnny) do a decent job replacing Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, but this TV movie is bloated with additional storylines and loses the joy of the original. If you watch, record it and fast-forward — a lot
