DOUBLE UP ON DIRTY
How many more times can you see Dirty Dancing? Oh, perhaps about a gazillion more, right? In keeping with tradition, Monkey Town is giving you an extra hit of that Johnny and Baby summer love with their end-of-the-summer tradition Double Dirty Dancing, in which the original and the 2006 Bollywood version, Holiday, screen simultaneously. Director Pooja Bhatt filmed Holiday—almost shot for shot like Dirty Dancing—with a nearly identical storyline: an awkward teenager named Muskaan befriends a group of dancers during her familys month-long vacation to Goa and falls in love with the rebellious dancer Dino. Some call Holiday a rip-off, while others label the film a remake. Well, it aint no Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, thats for damn sure.
