In the original film, Grey played Frances "Baby" Houseman, a teenager who becomes smitten with a dance instructor (Swayze) while on vacation at a New York resort in the 1960s.

They could never make this movie today. So I wonder how they will make the sequel "acceptable" to today's audiences?

Patrick Swayze can come back as a CGI ghost, or something?

Did anyone actually watch Dirty Dancing Havana Nights? That franchise went with Swayze I think.

If Grey is in it as her original character, then the sequal would be set 30 or so years after the original....

So Ice Ice Baby, it'll be Hammer Time for those who don't Smell Like Teen Spirit.

Not much of a film but some absolute belters on the soundtrack.

Jennifer Grey had a cracking arse too.

Remake and sequel of hit movies from the 80's and 90's means, as Speed said, no more ideas....

P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C...

It's just a film, comrades. Relax.

In these dangerous and unsettling times, there's no harm in escapism and nostalgia.

Sure, wasn't the original an excercise in 60s nostalgia?

Maybe while Baby is doing clay pottery?
