Product Description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

It’s inspired a hit musical. The soundtrack has sold in its millions. And it’s still, arguably, the most popular film on Patrick Swayze’s curriculum vitae. Most worrying of all, perhaps, is that Dirty Dancing is now more than twenty years old. Now that’s scary.

Still, it does offer the excuse for a special anniversary release, and that’s 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, it’s an easy film to pick holes in, should you be inclined to do so. After all, at heart it’s a well packaged piece of hokum, that’s 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 Dancing’s 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 they’re having the time of their life.

Granted, this latest re-release isn’t 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 it’s still a hard dish to resist. --Jon Foster

Format: DVD
I first watched this film, oddly enough, when I was in hospital and aged about seven ot eight. They had it in the video collection in the T.V. room. I watched it with another girl who had already seen it, and once the movie ended, I had fallen in love. (Depsite my age).
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.

This is amazing. I have loved this film for long as I can remember and can barely believe that it is 20 years old!! It is still as fresh as it was when it came out 20 years ago and it's one of those films that you can watch time and time again without getting bored with it.
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.

Right about the time i was 17 Dirty dancing came out. I didn't watch it as i saw it as a girl only film. Later, a good few years later i watched it on VHS and thought it was amazing.

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.

I absolutely love this movie. Has been one of my all time favourite chick flicks. But there is no difference from dvd to blu ray with this item.
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.

Review: Dirty Dancing.

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

This is a brilliant film i must have seen it multiple times. patrick swayze is gorgeous as johnny castle and jennifer Grey is just perfect as Baby. The dancing is brilliant and i always get hairs on the back of my neck in the final dance scene. There are lots of extras on this dvd including interviews, deleted scenes, etc. Just wonderful !
