'Dirty Dancing' remake: EW.com reader outrage heroically captured in 15 Baby faces

Within minutes of our announcement that Kenny Ortega has signed on to directDirty Dancing reboot, many of you had already echoed my own reaction to the news. (EWWWWW.com.) It struck me violently in the face that perhaps the horror of this situation can best be expressed by the original Baby, Jennifer Grey herself.

“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” –Sarah 

“Nobody puts Baby in a remake! Terrible idea!” –Scout

“Quit killing my adolescent years, Hollywood!” –Lindsay

“This finally proves to me that there is no God. Why must Hollywood remake everything? Vomit!” –S

“WHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!” –Christie Robin

“WHAT?! No. This should not happen.” –Kristen

“UGH NOOOOOOO. STOP WITH ALL THE AWFUL REMAKES!!!!!” –Jessie

“Barf” –Tom Bregeron

“No no no no no no no.” –Katie

“Why? Why? Why?” –Kaiulani

“FOOTLOOSE HAS ALREADY BEEN REMADE UNSUCCESSFULLY! LEAVE THIS ONE ALONE!!!!” –Tonks027

“WTF!” –Rusty Shackleford

“I can imagine this version will be cast with two bland refugees from the CW who will dance to a quasi-hip hop soundtrack and will have the chemistry of plain yogurt and two-day-old pizza.” –Mark

“The people greenlighting this crap need to be drug into the street and forced to watch their ‘remakes’ with their eyes taped open MARATHON MAN style. Enough is enough!!!!!! MAKE IT STOP!!!!” –lettergirl

“I think the question everyone wants to know is….will Baby wear a mask with cat ears or will she just wear 3D glasses?” –Matt Damon (although probably not Bald Matt Damon)

“Is this really necessary?” –ice castle

“HORRIBLE IDEA!!!! Leave Patrick Swayze’s legacy alone!” –Jen

Oh, well. It’s happening! In the immortal words of creepy Neil, “Sometimes, in this world, you see things you don’t want to see.”
