File this one under 'Not Even A Bit Surprised', to be honest.

The TV remake of Dirty Dancing received its first trailer a few weeks ago with a somewhat lacklustre response, and it now appears as though the end product itself is getting pretty much the same treatment.

Two major trade outlets have already filed their reviews - TVLine and Variety - and neither of them are particularly positive. In fact, they're both downright hostile, with TVLine slating Dirty Dancing with a 'D' rating.

According to Variety's review, the TV remake of Dirty Dancing is a "a sappy, passionless, schlocky remake of the original, without even the iota of imagination necessary to expand upon the 1987 film," but praises Abigail Breslin in the role of Baby Houseman.

TVLine, meanwhile, was pretty vicious on it too, and said that it "adds an unnecessary musical theater patina to the events of the original movie," whilst calling dancer Colt Prattes - who plays the role made famous by Patrick Swayze - mild and unconvincing.

There's no word yet if the remake will air over here, but given how poorly it's been received so far - and it has even been shown on TV yet - it's highly unlikely it ever will be. At any rate, the Dirty Dancing remake airs on ABC in the US this Wednesday, so expect to see a lot of reactions online on Thursday.
