What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Well Abigail Breslin cannot dance! LOL the whole point of the title was dancing or so I thought... and the ending of this version of the movie was so La La Land..
The singing was good by all and the story line different enough from the original but still kept enough of the plot line to differentiate itself .. however between these differences and Baby's dancing it (again for me) fell short.
Anyone who grew up in the 1960's remembers the corny family vacations/outings where everyone did embarrassing crap pretty much like in the original movie which seemed more vintage than this version... and in that one Baby did learn how to dance and it was and is fun to watch...
This one was both laughable and painful all at once... I think they tried too hard to change things and missed the mark..
Again no complaints in terms of the singing but the dancing sucked sooo bad LOL!
