Trailer

From Amazon.co.uk

As with Grease (1978) and Footloose (1984) before it, Dirty Dancing was a cultural phenomenon that now plays more like camp. That very campiness, though, is part of its biggest charm. And if the dancing in the movie doesn't seem particularly "dirty" by today's standards--or 1987's--it does take place in an era (the early '60s) when it would have. Frances "Baby" Houseman (Jennifer Grey, daughter of ageless hoofer Joel Grey), vacationing in the Catskills with her family one summer, falls under the sway (as it were) of dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). Baby is a pampered pup, but Johnny is a man of the world. Baby's father Jake can't see the basic decency in greaser Johnny that she can. It should come as no surprise to find that Baby, who can be as immature as her name, learns more about love and life--and dancing--from free-spirited Johnny than traditionalist Jake. Dirty Dancing spawned two successful soundtracks, a short-lived TV series and a stage musical. It may be predictable, but Grey and Swayze have chemistry, charisma and all the right moves. It's a sometimes silly movie with occasionally mind-boggling dialogue--"No one puts Baby in a corner!"--that nonetheless carries an underlying message about tolerance and is filled with the kind of exuberant spirit that is hard for even the most cynical to resist. Not that they would ever admit it. --Kathy Fennessy

On the DVD: The information outlined on the package makes the special features appear very appealing: you too could "Learn to Dirty Dance". However, all the DVD actually teaches you is how to move from side to side with a slow "cha cha cha"--not exactly "dirty". Other additional features include the obligatory scene selection and a directors commentary from Eleanor Bergstein, offers interesting snippets of trivia, but overall is dull and stuttering. There's also the original theatrical trailer plus a very poor selection of filmographies for the cast and crew which (none of whom aside from Swayze ever amounted to much) which is difficult to read due to the italic scrawl they insist on using across the whole features section. That being said with a 1.78:1 ratio and Dolby Digital 5.1 this release is the closest you will get to reliving those 1980s school discos and back-seat cinema rows. --Nikki Disney

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.

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.

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.

This is an excellent package. It has everything you need, a great Patrick Swayze Tribute, over an hour of brand new fascinating extras. As well as a 28 page commemorative booklet with a touching piece from Writer Eleanor Bergstein.
For the reviewer who gave 1 star with disc problems, the disc with both Patrick and Jennifer on is a Blu-ray, and wont work in a DVD player. the other 2 discs are DVDs and will. I hope this helps!

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
