Decade-defining box office smash starring Patrick Swayze in one of his most famous roles. Frances 'Baby' Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is a teenage girl on holiday with her family at a resort in the Catskill Mountains. Stumbling upon an off-limits employees-only party, she witnesses the staff getting down and dirty to the R 'n' B hits of the day. The hotel's dance instructor Johnny (Swayze) catches her eye in particular, and, despite their differences in class, age and experience, the couple begin to fall in love. Features the Oscar-winning song '(I've Had) the Time of My Life' as performed by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.
Its inspired a hit musical. The soundtrack has sold in its millions. And its still, arguably, the most popular film on Patrick Swayzes curriculum vitae. Most worrying of all, perhaps, is that Dirty Dancing is now more than twenty years old. Now thats scary.
Still, it does offer the excuse for a special anniversary release, and thats exactly what we have here. And, to be fair, the film has never looked better. The story is still as straightforward and simple as it always was, baked just to the point where it can support the aforementioned Swayze and Jennifer Grey strutting their stuff. But Dirty Dancing nonetheless continues to work well to this day, with its rarely-rivalled, sizzling mix of romance, energy and music.
Of course, its an easy film to pick holes in, should you be inclined to do so. After all, at heart its a well packaged piece of hokum, thats never likely to contend in a Top 100 movies poll. But to pick holes would be churlish, and perhaps to miss the point. Because Dirty Dancings mantra is to entertain, and it delivers on that promise with some conviction. The late Emile Ardolino wisely keeps his direction zippy, and the two leads really do look like theyre having the time of their life.
Granted, this latest re-release isnt going to convert sceptics to the ways of Dirty Dancing, and the unfortunate, unwelcome sequel will remain a blot on its copybook. But this original is hard to beat, and its still a hard dish to resist. --Jon Foster

I don't care what anyone says, this movie is fantastic. It has lasted so long because it taps into what most girls secretly want and desire. A good old fashioned romance. How many girls would love to go on holiday and fall in love? Especially if the object of our affections was Patrick Swayze.
I have spoken to men who have seen this movie and didn't like it and the main objection seems to be Patrick Swayze. Jealous anyone?
Men, for the most part, are not going to like this movie because the hero (Swayze) puts them to shame. Don't get me wrong, there are some men who know how to appreciate a good film and don't pan it because it makes them feel/look inadequate. Those men know how to romance their girl and are no doubt duely rewarded!
The film has fantastic acting, dancing and follows a realistic story.
I did always get the sense that it was more eighties than sixties, but that never bothered me.
The soundtrack is brilliant and the love story heart warming. I always get a sense of longevity where Baby and Johnny are concerned once the movie ends. I am grateful that the sequel, which was equally as good but for different reasons, did not interfere with this movies ending.
Well worth five stars and more.
A classic that will survive another 20 years I have no doubt.
Great storyline, great characters, great actors and great music make this film one of the best films from the last 20 years.
The 20th Anniversary Edition is good. It has bonus features that you won't get anywhere else with interviews from the two main characters/actors as well as original auditions and lots more. Worth buying even if you own the original version before for the extra alone it's worth it.
I won't go into the story as that can be read elsewhere but i would comment on the wonderful soundtrack which really helps to make this a 'must see' film.
And if, like me, you are of the male gender PLEASE don't dismiss this as a chick flick as you will be missing a wonderful film. I won't spoilt the ending, in case you don't know what happens, but it has a fantastic ending and all in all if a great feel good film. I actually envy anybody who has not seen it yet as i'd like to go and watch it 'fresh' and be impressed all over again.
Do not miss it.
This is not blu ray quality. It's normal dvd quality, in fact the transfer is so bad at times the image is blurred and fuzzy on the edges. The company who transferred this to blu ray should be sacked!!! Due to the poor Blu Ray quality, I give this one star.
Dirty Dancing is one of the most loved romance movies of all time! Set in 1963, Dirty Dancing is one of those films that never gets old! It's an exhilarating and thrilling romance movie which is sure to grab the attention and pull on a few heart strings. Big celebrities who star in this passionate movie are Patrick Swayze who plays Johnny Castle and Jennifer Grey who plays Frances `Baby' Houseman.
When I first saw this movie and when my mum told me what type of movie it was - romance and about dancing, I didn't think I would like it as I'm not a big fan of these sort of movies, but I really did love this movie! I was proved totally wrong!
When Baby and her family are holidaying one summer, she falls for dance instructor Johnny Castle. Baby is pampered and spoilt, whilst Johnny being a man of the world. Baby's father is a high flying doctor and can not see the decency in Johnny that Baby can. In this time with Johnny, Baby learns more about love, life and dancing!
Dirty Dancing has fantastic sound tracks! They really make the film even better! Some people may think this film is predictable but I really think this film is great! I would recommend it to anyone.
Directors: Emile Ardolino
Actors: Patrick Swayze, Garry Goodrow, Neal Jones, Lonny Price, Jennifer Grey

It may seem a bit late to catch up with Dirty Dancing, and I think I may have been more taken with it had I seen it back in 1987. Read morePublished 13 days ago by schumann_bg
