What if David Lynch Directed ‘Dirty Dancing’?

I can’t sit through this movie, but perhaps I actually would have liked Dirty Dancing if it was directed by David Lynch. I came across this video a while back and thought it was pretty funny – it’s a trailer of the 1987 box office hit…if it was helmed by the Master of the Odd, the Eerie, the Intentionally Ambiguous Mr. Lynch. There are a lot of funny film trailers to be found on the web, that is for sure. I think this one did a great job with picking out the various clips to use. The editing and use of music (very Lynchian) is also very effective. Great pull-quotes and some nifty little effects complete this very funny parody — and actually make Dirty Dancing look somewhat watchable. It’s a quick 90 seconds – so give it a watch…and enjoy! (You have to go to YouTube to watch it….it’s worth it.)

    Great trailer. It is definitely an interesting thought – I’d like to see a Lynchian version of a few other bittersweet romantic films, see how they turn out.

    • That would make for a great new Top 10 list for you Dan! “David Lynch Directs When Harry Met Sally”…absolutely!!! Beats the crap out of Rob Reiner, that’s for sure 🙂
